I recently read where Nigella Lawson was getting criticized for posting a recipe for “Avocado Toast”. Some of the comments and criticisms were just plain mean. Half of the people that type these horrible things wouldn’t dare say them to your face. Unfortunately that’s the World we live in today. So – here I go with MY recipe for “Avocado Toast”.
It’s really simple and very versatile. Add Parmesan cheese if you desire or skip the black pepper and add red pepper flakes. Top with olive oil or a fried egg. The sky is the limit with this recipe really!
2 slices wheat bread, toasted
1 Hass Avocado
Sprinkle of Kosher salt
Sprinkle of black pepper
Drizzle of Olive Oil
Start by cutting the avocado in half and removing the large pit. The best way to do this is by carefully laying the knife into the side of the pit, rotating the pit, and removing it. Discard the pit.
Scoop the green avocado insides into a small bowl and lighty mash with a fork. Squeeze over the 1/2 lemon being careful not to include any of its seeds into the smooched avocado.
Lightly mix together and spread over toast.
Sprinkle over the salt and pepper evenly before drizzling on a little bit of olive oil.
