Avocado Toast

Once upon a time, the thought of eating mashed up avocado on a piece of toasted bread was revolting to me.  Then, one fateful day, I had a ripe avocado which needed to be eaten.  So I thought, “What the hell?  Let’s see what all the fuss is about.”  I felt like Sleeping Beauty receiving a kiss from Prince Charming—I was awoken to a world of culinary possibilities.  Joking aside, I found myself loving the juxtaposition of cool, creamy avocado on warm crunchy toast.  Moreover, I loved the versatility of the combination—you can add anything you like to it.   This is currently my favorite way to eat avocado toast.  Sometimes I add diced tomatoes or pickled jalapeños to this mix, but today I kept it simple, which is how I like it best.

 

1 ripe Haas avocado

1/4 wedge of lime

1/4 tsp kosher salt

1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

2 slices whole-wheat bread

 

1. Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit, and scoop the flesh into a bowl.

2.  Squeeze the wedge of lime over the avocado, discard the rind.

3.  Sprinkle the salt and cayenne pepper over the avocado.

4. Using a fork, mash the ingredients together until you get your desired consistency (I like mine on the lumpy side).

5. Meanwhile, toast your slices of bread to your desired done-ness.

6. Once the bread is toasted, place it on a plate, spread each slice with half of the avocado mixture, and enjoy.
