Let me explain the title. I went out for brunch this past weekend and everyone around me was ordering the avocado toast (naturally, I ordered it too). Then, I went to a coffee shop and they were serving avocado toast. Since then, I’ve noticed avocado toast on menus EVERYWHERE in NYC. If you haven’t tried this trendy staple, now’s the time to jump on the bandwagon. Rather than pay $10+ for it at a restaurant, why not make your own at home?
This is so easy that I’m not even sure it should be considered cooking. It’s more like compiling ingredients. My version of this trendy new food item is smoky and salty, and I think it’s going to be crowd pleaser. And, avocados contain “good” monounsaturated fats, which are great for your heart.
Makes 2 pieces of toast
2 slices of whole wheat bread (I used boule bread from the bakery section of the supermarket)
1 ripe avocado
1 radish, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon poppy seeds
salt to taste
- Toast the bread in a toaster oven or in a 350 degrees F oven for a few minutes.
- Cut the avocado in half and remove the peel and the pit. Place in a bowl. Add the smoked paprika to the bowl and mash the avocado and paprika with a fork.
- Spoon the avocado mixture onto the bread and top with radish and Feta cheese.
So simple, right?
