Grilled Avocado

2 ripe avocados
5 or 6 fresh basil leaves
juice of 1/2 lemon
course salt
4 thick slices of bakery sourdough bread

Preheat grill to medium (375*).  Cut avocados in half and remove seeds.  Place the avocado halves cut-side down directly on the preheated grill or on a vegetable grilling rack.  Cook for 8-10 minutes, until the fruit is lightly charred, then transfer to a plate and let cool slightly.

Spoon the grilled avocado out of the peel and into a medium bowl; mash it with a fork until chunky.  Slice the basil leaves into thin ribbons; add to the mashed avocado along with the juice of 1/2 lemon and salt to taste.  Stir well to combine.  Serve with slices of grilled or toasted sourdough bread.
