Avocado Toast


Ah avocado toast - the epitome of the millennial generation, no? Or, according to this news article, the reason why millennials cannot get into the real estate market.

All jokes aside, avocado toast is delicious - and it's also a really great way to sneak more veggies into your breakfast (or whatever meal you have it for). Avocados are a fantastic source of healthy fats, fibre, and potassium - making them a very healthy choice for your brain, heart, and gut!

You can make avocado toast fully customized the way you like it with a variety of other vegetables, herbs, and seasonings! Start by choosing a whole grain, high fibre bread (aim for 3-4 grams of fibre per slice) and add some protein such as a boiled egg, scrambled tofu, or hemp seeds to make this a balanced meal.

Ingredients:

  • 1 slice multigrain bread

  • 1/2 small avocado

  • Optional seasonings: lemon juice, salt, pepper, red chili flakes

Optional Toppings:

  • Boiled egg

  • Scrambled tofu

  • Nuts or seeds, such as hemp seed

  • Leafy greens, such as arugula or spinach

  • Mixed vegetables, such as tomatoes, green onion, or radishes

Recipe:

  1. Toast bread, as desired.

  2. Mash avocado in a small bowl with optional seasonings, to taste.

  3. Top toasted bread with mashed avocado mixture.

  4. Top with desired optional toppings, enjoy!
