Morning everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for these delicious Gluten and Dairy Free Tomato, Chorizo and Avocado Canapes.

I think the most neglected section of my website is appetisers.  I tend to find it difficult to create recipes to include.

It’s probably because my website is more a record of what I eat rather than me making things specifically to photograph for the website, if that makes sense.  I definitely have more of a sweet tooth so tend to have a main and a dessert rather than an appetiser.

This recipe is for a perfect little tasty bite of gluten free crusty bread, avocado, tomatoes and chorizo.  Always double check your chorizo as sometimes they can sneak a bit of dairy into it.  I actually served these for lunch along with my roasted tomato and chilli soup.
