The combination of creamy, buttery avocado and warm, toasted bread is the perfect match. I love avocado toast because it is delicious, nutritious, and takes only a few minutes to make. Avocados are nutrient dense and are loaded with healthy monounsaturated fats, fiber, and potassium. When paired with whole grain bread, which contains protein, this avocado toast makes for a satisfying and filling meal. My favorite avocado toast toppings are olive oil, lemon juice, pumpkin seeds, salt, and pepper. Pumpkin seeds add extra crunch and nutty flavor to the dish. They can be found in the bulk bins at Friendly City Food Coop. Try this savory avocado toast for yourself and savor it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
4 slices of your favorite bread, toasted
1 ripe avocado
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp. lemon juice
¼ cup pumpkin seeds
Dash of sea salt and pepper
- Mash avocado onto each slice of toasted bread using a fork.
- Top each slice of toast with a drizzle of olive oil and lemon juice. Sprinkle pumpkin seeds, sea salt, and pepper on top. Serve immediately and enjoy!
