Avocado Toast


Avocado Toast

by Pamela Salzman

 

Avocados are amazingly good for you. Perfect, untouched, non-oxidized, healthful fats, plus fiber and loads of Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant. Avocados are an incredible food for little ones whose brains are developing. And I think they’re an awesome beauty food — so great for your skin. My favorite way to eat an avocado is on toast. The contrast between soft and buttery avocado and crunchy toast makes me swoon.

 

 

Ingredients

Red Chili Flakes


Flaky Sea Salt

 

How to Make

 

There really isn’t a “recipe” for this, just a few of my favorite combinations. I like a lot of avocado on my toast, but you may choose to have less. Just go with whatever seems right to you.


I like ½ a large avocado mashed for two slices of bread.


My favorite bread is either a good naturally fermented bread (like from Lodge Bread in LA) or the gluten-free seed bread from Le Pain Quotidien.


Some of my favorite combos are:

~thinly sliced radish, microgreens, Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel Seasoning.

~a squeeze of lime, a drizzle of olive oil, a pinch of red chili flakes and a sprinkle of flaky sea salt.

~thinly sliced smoked wild salmon or lox and a squeeze of fresh lemon.

~sliced ripe tomato with a squeeze of lemon and a pinch of salt. A drizzle of olive oil is good, too.

~a drop of shoyu or good quality soy sauce, a drizzle of toasted sesame oil and a sprinkle of sesame seeds or gomasio.

~a fried egg and a pinch of salt. A sprinkle of chopped chives is nice, too.
