Making Your Own Avocado Toast is Easier Than You Think

If you haven’t heard about avocado toast lately, you’ve probably been living under a rock! This popular breakfast and brunch dish has exploded onto the scene as a trendy choice for a nutritious and healthy dish.

Unfortunately, as anyone who has ever ordered avocado toast at a restaurant before probably knows, the price that you generally pay for this meal is disproportionately high! So, why not learn how to make it at home? Here’s how!

Ingredients:

  • 2 slices of high-quality bread (preferably whole wheat and/or artesanal, from a local bakery)
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

Instructions:

  1. Start off by heating up a skillet or a toaster. Once this device is ready, add a little bit of olive oil on the outside of your bread and toast it until it is golden-brown and firm. This is the first step to enjoying great avocado toast!
  2. Next, open up the ripe avocado, remove the pit, and take out all of the delicious, creamy flesh with a spoon. Put it into a small bowl, and then add the olive oil, lemon juice, sea salt, and black pepper.
  3. Mash all of the ingredients together with a spoon until it has reached a creamy and smooth consistency.
  4. Take the toast, spread this avocado mix on top of each piece, and there you have it! Your avocado toast is ready to enjoy.
