foodie: my favorite gluten-free lunch (with avocado!)

as you know, i'm going "gluten-free" for a month to see if it clears up my pesky stomach issues and makes me feel overall better.  without gluten (i.e. wheat), my usual lunch of a pita sandwich is a no-go for the time being, but i'm not missing it at all because of my new favorite lunch of avocado topped with sauteed onions and goat cheese.  (is your mouth watering yet?!)

here's what you'll need for lunch for one...

1/2 avocado, in-tact and scooped out of the skin
1/2 onion, chopped
1 tsp olive oil
1 oz goat cheese
1 tomato, sliced
lemon wedge
salt & pepper

1. saute onions in olive oil.  season with salt and pepper.

2. squeeze some lemon on the avocado (if desired) to keep it from browning, and fill it with goat cheese and surround with tomatoes. 

3. top everything with the hot onions as soon as they're done so that they can begin to melt the cheese!

4. garnish with chopped chives, or herb of your choice.

(for a vegan option, replace the goat cheese with chopped kalamata olives to add some richness.  i had that version the other day and it was delish too!)

bon appetit!
