Avocado Grilled Cheese

Avocado Grilled Cheese

Would anyone judge me if I said I’ve eaten this avocado grilled cheese for dinner the past 10 days straight? Sure hope not because that’s definitely been the case! I cannot get enough of Siete Family Foods’ tortillas. I haven’t tried the Casava flour ones, but I’ve tried the chickpea, cashew, and almond flour ones and they’re delicious. They’re a bit more flimsy and fragile (can you use fragile to describe a tortilla – haha), but they’re good no matter what.

Avocado Grilled Cheese

I’m not gluten free, but I’ve noticed that I eat gluten free about 90-95% of the time unintentionally. My oatmeal at lunch is gluten free, and almost all of my dinners consists of gluten free items. Not to mention, a LARGE number of foods and snacks on the shelves at stores are already gluten free.

If you’re planning on making this for a quick dinner, I highly suggest pairing the grilled cheese with Trader Joe’s Low Sodium Tomato Soup (the one linked is not the low sodium one). It’s SO GOOD and filled with healthy and whole ingredients. Avocado grilled cheese and tomato soup go hand in hand and may just be one of the best combos out there.

Recipe Notes

*This option pairs well with organic tomato soups or my butternut squash soup recipe!

Don’t have a taste for tomato soup, pair this with my butternut squash soup!

Feel free to make this with sourdough bread instead. It tastes just as great! I prefer using the Sprouted Sourdough bread from Trader Joe’s as it adds a little extra flavor and texture.
