Avocado toast – a gift from the millennials!
Recently we were having breakfast with friends and avocado toast was on the menu. I’ll just point out that the four of us sitting at that breakfast table were decidedly NOT millennials. My husband and I – the crazy vegans – were very familiar with avocado toast though and were super excited to see it on the menu.
“Avocado toast? Avocado toast? What’s that?” Our friend asked. “Do they bake the bread with avocado in it or something?”
Dude…you are definitely showing your age…
Just look at this beautiful avocado! Cutting open an avocado this perfect is usually cause for excitedly calling to all available family members to drop what they are doing and run in the kitchen to appreciate such a wonder.
Avocado toast has become a staple in our household for breakfast…or lunch…or whenever. It belongs in the Quick and Easy section because there is no faster way to whip up something fabulous and special.
When I cut open the avocado I make a little avocado working bowl out of the side without the seed. First, I remove any black or mushy spots. I then cut into it with a spoon, crosshatching as I go. I sprinkle a little salt in as I’m working so that I can just turn it on to the toast. See, It’s kind of like working in a little avocado bowl!
You can eat your avocado toast with a just little salt or you can top it with various seasonings. We like Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend.
I also make a tasty Trail Mix Tofu Crumbles recipe. That’s a real treat for my family!
It’s almost embarrassing to make this avocado toast a “recipe” as it’s mainly a set of directions. I just didn’t want anyone to forget how fabulous and easy this is for a plant-based person to make and enjoy. So go ahead and cut into that avocado now!
This quick and easy meal is perfect for breakfast or for a snack. It's vegan and plant-based too.
