THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS

I honestly wouldn’t even call this a ‘recipe’ for how simple it is, with minimal ingredients required! But don’t think for a second this is some mere avocado mashed over a slice of toasted bread. No. No. Nooo. 

This is avocado toast stepped up to a whole new level of flavor! You can have this for breakfast with your eggs, as a midday snack, or considering the flavors – you can serve it with your next pasta dish. 

Pasta dish, you say?? With avocado? Absolutely.

INGREDIENTS NEEDED FOR THIS RECIPE

  • Your favorite bread – any kind!
  • Medium or large avocado
  • Unsalted butter
  • Minced garlic
  • Pesto sauce
  • Lightly dried parsley (fresh will work, too)
  • Broccoli sprouts
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Lemon or lime – juiced
  • Salt and pepper
  • Shaved parmesan cheese – or your favorite cheese

That’s it. You can swap out any of the ingredients listed above for your favorite items or with what you already have at home. Get creative!

  1. Swap the butter for hummus.
  2. Don’t care for pesto? Omit it!
  3. Add your favorite toppings if you’re not a fan of tomatoes or shaved parmesan cheese. 
    For example: roasted red bell peppers, chickpeas, a hard boiled egg, blue cheese, everything but the bagel seasoning, etc. The options are completely up to your taste bud preference!

All that matters is that you try it and get creative with it. Sometimes the best meals don’t come from a recipe, but from randomness that you find in your fridge or pantry and throw together.

Ingredients:

  • 2 slices whole wheat bread, (or bread of choice)
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter, (melted)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp basil pesto
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 medium avocado, (peeled and pitted)
  • 1/4 tsp salt, (more or less, to taste)
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper, (more or less, to taste)
  • 1/2 lime - juiced (or lemon) (more or less, to taste)

Garnishment:

  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, (halved)
  • 1/4 cup broccoli sprouts
  • 2 tbsp shaved parmesan cheese, (or your favorite cheese)
  • lightly dried or fresh parsley, (optional, sub with basil )

Instructions:

  • Toast 2 slices of your favorite bread in a toaster until lightly browned and crispy.  Or until desired doneness.
  • In a small mixing bowl, mash the avocado with the salt, pepper, and lime juice.
  • When the toast is ready, combine the melted butter, pesto sauce, and minced garlic. Brush over each slice of toast. Top with the avocado mixture.
  • Garnish each toast with tomatoes, sprouts, parsley, and shaved parmesan cheese. Best eaten promptly. 

Notes:

 LEMON/LIME JUICE: This addition is completely optional. It helps to enhance the flavor of the mashed avocado as well as slow down the browning process.
GARLIC: Add to your taste bud preference. Same with the salt and pepper. If you're unsure of flavors of any ingredients, error on the side of caution and add a little at a time and adjust as needed.
