Okay, so I know I am totally late to jump onto the whole avocado toast craze, but I just recently tried it for the first time and holy cow was it good!!! So today’s post is going to be dedicated to the simple but delicious avocado toast concoction that I created, and I’m really happy with how it came out! It’s light and healthy but you feel like you’re eating something really special!
My recipe is 100% vegan but you could totally add a sprinkle of feta or parmesan cheese if you wanted, or even an egg on top! Anything goes really, and the ratio of ingredients is totally up to you! I tend to not have specific ratios when I cook and rely more on taste each time. You never know if you’re going to have a super oniony onion or if you’re wanting something a little less salty one day. That’s why I like to go by taste each time (usually having a heavy hand with the red pepper flakes, garlic powder and onion – it keeps people a nice distance away for a while, if you know what I mean LOL) but I always use all the ingredients below! It may seem like a lot of different spices but what can I say, I love a ton of flavor! I hope you try this out and find your own favorite combination of flavors!!
Bon appétit, peeps!
Makes 1 serving (2 slices)
2 slices bread, toasted (I used Ezekiel Bread)
For the guacamole:
1/2 an avocado
Red pepper flakes
For the black bean topping:
Canned black beans (with some of the liquid from the can remaining)
Red pepper flakes
Drizzle of olive oil
Mix whatever ingredients you’re using for your guacamole together in a bowl, cover and refrigerate for a few hours.
Mix your black bean ingredients together in a separate bowl, cover and refrigerate for a few hours.
Once you’re ready to assemble everything together, toast your bread – let it get nice and crisp! Then layer on your guac and black beans!
Add whatever toppings you want (I leave mine as is). Eat right away so your toast doesn’t get soggy!
Thank you so much for reading and I hope you give this combo a try! It really is delicious and super nutritious, and it feels awesome to eat something that is so good for you! Let me know in the comments what your favorite way to eat avocado toast is, I’d love to know so I can give it a try!
