Avocado toast

Ok, avocado toast. Here is the thing: it’s versatile, delicious, healthy and satisfying. What’s not to like?

The great thing about avocado toast is that you only need three ingredients to make a good one: bread, avocado and salt. And from here you can take it to any level. I personally like my avocado with lime juice and cilantro, but when those are not handy, plain avocado and salt will do it for me.

The same goes for the toppings: 98% of the time I don’t have time or the ingredients to make a more elaborated avocado toast with fancy toppings, so plain avocado goes. For sure it’s more fun with toppings but I don’t let that be a deterrent for making it.

Here I used the following toppings:

  • Chopped cilantro
  • Paprika
  • Smoked salmon and dill
  • Everything bagel seasoning
  • Chili flakes
  • Mozzarella pearls, cherry tomatoes and balsamic vinegar reduction

As for the bread, I like to use multigrain because it gives a more hearty flavor to it, and you feel you’re eating something really healthy… but any type of bread will make a good avocado toast. Most of the times we eat it with regular sandwich bread, whatever is in our pantry.

What I love about it is that it can be a great breakfast, lunch, snack or dinner. Avocados are a good source of fiber and healthy fats (that’s why you feel full after eating it), and they also are a great source of several micronutrients, such as vitamin E and K.

Avocado toast is really a great meal option.
