Avocado toast has got to be the trendiest meal around. Packed with good fat, fiber and vitamins and paired with whole-grain bread, it’s filling and healthy. Rather than the same combo every day, try some flavorful twists.
- Spinach, avocado and snap peas with Japanese rice seasoning
Layer spinach leaves on toast; then spread with half a mashed avocado. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon Japanese rice seasoning (made with bonito flakes, sesame and soy) over the avocado. Top with ¼ cup blanched or raw sugar snap peas.
- Asparagus, dill and sliced avocado
Slice ½ avocado onto toast; add blanched asparagus, chopped fresh dill, salt and pepper.
- Fried egg, avocado and fresh herbs
Mash ½ avocado, and spread on whole-wheat toast. Add a fried egg, 1 tablespoon of your favorite fresh herbs (such as chopped parsley, chives or basil), salt and pepper.
- Roasted cherry tomatoes with avocado and green onions
Preheat oven to 325˚. Toss a pint of cherry tomatoes with ½ tablespoon olive oil. Place on a baking sheet; season and bake for 20 minutes. Slice ½ avocado onto toast, and cover with sliced green onion and about 6 roasted cherry tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper. (Save extra tomatoes for later.)
