Avocado Toast


  • 2 slices of bread (whole wheat, sourdough, or your preferred choice)
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional toppings: red pepper flakes, sliced tomatoes, microgreens, poached eggs, or crumbled feta cheese


  • Toast the bread slices until they are golden and crispy. You can use a toaster or toast them in a preheated oven or toaster oven.
  • While the bread is toasting, cut the ripe avocado in half lengthwise. Remove the pit and scoop the flesh into a bowl.
  • Mash the avocado with a fork until it reaches your desired consistency. You can leave it slightly chunky or make it smooth and creamy.
  • Once the bread slices are toasted, place them on a plate or a cutting board.
  • Spread a generous amount of mashed avocado onto each slice of toast, covering the surface evenly.
  • Season the avocado with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the amounts based on your preferences.
  • If desired, add optional toppings such as a sprinkle of red pepper flakes for some heat, sliced tomatoes for freshness, microgreens for added crunch, a poached egg for extra protein, or crumbled feta cheese for tanginess.
  • Serve the avocado toast immediately while the bread is still warm and crispy.

Avocado toast is a simple and versatile dish that can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, or a quick snack. Feel free to experiment with different toppings and flavors to suit your taste.
