  1. Heat a frying pan and fry the pancetta slices till crispy. Remove from the pan and set aside. In the same pan, lightly toast the pine nuts.
  2. Next, sear the portobello with a few drops of liquid smoke till crispy but be careful not to burn it. The liquid smoke will give a lovely smoke house flavour. (careful not to over do the liquid smoke)
  3. Coat avocado well with olive oil and lime and broil till golden brown.
  4. To make the dressing combine 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, lemon and season with salt and pepper. Taste to make sure your dressing is balanced – add a little more oil or vinegar as needed.
  5. On serving plates, lay out the broiled avocado. Sprinkle with the spinach leaves, pancetta and toasted pine nuts. Season well with salt and pepper and drizzle with dressing.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
