Avocado Toast 4 Ways

by | Nov 8, 2018 | Recipes | 16 comments

For All Recipes:

Choose your favorite type of whole grain bread – gluten-free or not.  (I suggest something that has lots of grains and seeds in it. Look for something that could get caught in your teeth.  This means there is more fiber in it which is the stuff I’m always trying to get you to eat more of because it makes you feel fuller, supports healthy cholesterol levels, and usually helps to form a good poop. I also am a big fan of “sprouted” bread like Dave’s Killer Bread, Ezekiel, Manna and the somewhat expensive gluten-free Food for Life. )

Toast this bread.  That was easy.

 

INGREDIENTS:

PESTO-CADO on toast

1 avocado – peeled, pitted and halved

½ cup finely chopped spinach

½ cup finely chopped basil

1/8  cup olive oil

4 garlic cloves finely chopped (use garlic powder in a pinch, but you will miss the robustness of the live bulb!)

½ teaspoon salt or to taste

1 Tablespoon of nutritional yeast

3-4 pieces of whole grain bread

 

SMOKO-CADO on toast

1 avocado – peeled, pitted and halved

4 oz silken tofu

1 tsp of smoked paprika

½ lemon, juiced

½ teaspoon salt

3-4 pieces of whole grain bread

 

ROSEMARY BEAN-CADO on toast

1 avocado – peeled, pitted and halved

½ cup cannellini beans (aka white beans)

1 Tablespoon of rosemary, finely chopped

1/8  cup olive oil

½ Tablespoon finely chopped garlic (use garlic powder in a pinch, but you will miss the robustness of the live bulb!)

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon ground pepper

3-4 pieces of whole grain bread

 

CHEVRO-CADO on toast

1 avocado – peeled, pitted and halved

¼ cup creamy goat cheese (chevre)

¼ cup chopped onions

Salt and pepper to taste

3-4 pieces of whole grain bread

 

DIRECTIONS

Place all ingredients (except the bread!) into a Cuisinart blender and blend until you have the desired consistency, or place into a bowl and mash together using a potato masher. Toast the bread (or not, if you like!) Spread avocado mixture into each piece of toast. Sing glory hallelujah.

 

SERVES: 2-4

Prep time: 8 minutes

      Oh my, how I adore smoked paprika. Not sure how I lived without it for so long!

      You are speaking my language. So happy I can make it at home and not buy it for $12!

      Yes! Yum. Pesto and avocado should be required to spend time together!

First things first: I love chocolate. I love kale. And I consume them both regularly, but generally not at the same time (although, ask me about my chocolate, berry & kale smoothie!) I also love helping people find easy ways make their body, mind, and life better while also making eco-friendly choices that support the health of our planet.
