The King of healthy toast toppings - Mr. Avocado. I wonder how many places on Earth serve Avo Toasts. I remember when it became really popular and, suddenly, all of the healthy cafes or brunch spots started serving these. And they were right, because it's quick, looks great, sells and, most importantly is delicious. I had prepped so many avocado toasts at home, too, be it for me or for my always hungry guests. Here comes a few tips and tricks on mastering this simple snack.
Or is it just because I want to tease you with these crazy good looking pictures?...
Serves 2 | Prep time: 5-10 minutes
- 1 perfectly ripe avocado (preferably purple skin)
- 2 rye sourdough slices or bread of your choice
- lime or lemon juice
- sea salt
- chili powder or flakes
- toppings e.g. toasted almonds, sesame or hemp seeds, micro greens, chia
Toast your bread. Get it proper brown and crunchy. In the meantime, toast almond flakes and sesame seeds on a dry pan. Cut avocado in half, remove the pit, make horizontal or vertical cuts (up to you) on both avocado sides & scoop it out using a spoon. Squeeze a generous amount of lime or lemon juice over the avocado flesh - this will stop avocado from turning black and give you great seasoning.
Divide avocado between the two toasts. Sprinkle a good amount of sea salt (salt really brings out the flavor of avocado and goes well with that fresh acidic citrus juice), chili and nuts/seeds/micro greens or anything else you want to use as a topping. Bite into the creamiest and crunchiest at the same time toast.
If you're having some guests over, you can serve avocado for toast as a do-it-yourself thing. Top avocado halves with citrus juice, salt, nuts/seeds, etc. and leave a knife next to it. This way your guests can choose the amount of avocado per toast they love most. No more messy topping sprinkling.
