Caprese salad is refreshing. A fresh salad with just-snipped herbs from the garden is sometimes just what the body craves. We can sometimes go overboard on the keto diet with meat!
But what if you want fresh AND warm comforting? And you don’t feel like making two meals? And you don’t have a ton of time?
Caprese Baked Avocados fit those criteria! I LOVE using fresh ingredients. And veggies are my jam. But when winter comes or I’m craving something more like a keto comfort food, a good baked stuffed avocado with herbs and veggies and gooey mozzarella cheese is just right.
Cut the avocados in half lengthwise and place the halves with the cut side facing up on the tray. I recommend using a muffin tin to keep the halves from tipping over and spilling the toppings. Salt and pepper each half.
Fill with grape tomatoes
Divide the grape tomatoes between the avocados. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Sprinkle the avocado halves with some of the basil.
Add fresh mozzarella
Place a slice of 1/4″ thick mozzarella cheese on top of the tomatoes, covering the avocado halves.
Finish the caprese avocados and bake in the oven!
Drizzle with oil and vinegar and salt and pepper again. Top with more basil and bake at 400 °F for 12-15 minutes. Allow to rest for 2-5 minutes, and enjoy!
