Sweet and Savory Basic Avocado Toast
A sweet twist on basic savory avocado toast using cinnamon raisin bread! If you run out of regular bread it’s okay. Use whatever kind of bread you have! The taste is surprisingly subtle.
1 slice cinnamon raisin bread ( I used Angelic Bake house)
1/4- 1/2 avocado
1/8 tsp idozided salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp nutritional yeast
2 cherry tomatoes
Open-Faced Avocado Naan Sandwich
This recipe came together randomly as I would normally have avocado toast on bread and have the other components on the side. One morning I had leftover naan from dinner and was out of bread. Eventually, this little breakfast sandwich came together and surprised me by how delicious everything was together! It’s a great vegan option and has all the components of a healthy breakfast. Plus, it’s super easy and quick to make!
1 Piece of Naan Bread (or pita)
1/4 -1/2 Avocado, scooped
2-3 pieces of Tempeh Bacon
1/4 Apple, sliced into thin pieces
Everything But the Bagel seasoning, to taste (optional)
Toast Naan or Pita Bread
While bread is toasting, heat tempeh bacon in lightly greased pan, about 2-3 minutes per side.
Mash avocado onto bread, top with apple slices, sprinkle on seasoning, and finally top with tempeh bacon. Enjoy sandwich with remaining apple on the side!
San Marzano Avocado Toast
Fun fact about San Marzano tomatoes:
Often described as sweet and lightly acidic, San Marzano tomatoes' uniqueness is definitely influenced by the farmland and that is because true original San Marzano tomatoes are grown in the volcanic soil/regions in Italy. The rich volcanic soil is what in turn shapes the flavor profile of these unique tomatoes.
1/2 cup San Marzano Tomatoes, chopped or sliced
1 Whole (small) Avocado, sliced
2 Slices Whole Wheat or Whole Grain Bread
1/4 teaspoon Lime Juice (helps avocado preserve green color, not needed if eaten right away)
Pinch of Chia Seeds
Pinch of Sesame Seeds
Lightly toast whole wheat bread, and cover with slices of avocado as needed. If the toast will not be eaten right away, add lime juice to prevent premature browning of avocado.
Next, color your toast with sliced San Marzano tomatoes, sprinkle chia seeds, sesame seeds and garnish with basil. Simple, quick, delicious and nutritious!
Creamy and Crunchy Classic Avocado Toast
This version of the classic avocado toast is crunchy, creamy, and has the perfect balance of bright lemon and seasonings. My favorite unique component is “Everything but the Bagel Seasoning Blend” found at Trader Joe’s. This blend of sesame seeds, sea salt flakes, dried garlic, dried onion, and poppy seeds elevates this easy dish to a whole new level.
1/4 Whole wheat lavash flatbread
1/2 Ripe avocado
Squeeze of lemon juice
Sprinkle of Everything but the Bagel Seasoning
Pinch of Morton’s smoked sea salt flakes (optional)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the lavash on an oiled sheet tray and into the oven to toast, watching it closely for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, mash the avocado in a small bowl. Spread on the toasted lavash, squeeze lemon and season the toast to your preference.
Avocado Toast with Vegan Egg
People drool whenever an egg is put on top of a dish because it adds an extra layer of umami and creaminess. I’ve been working over the years trying to recreate a vegan version that does not involve spending $8 on an extremely processed alternative that taste NOTHING like an egg. Because, nothing beats an egg on top of avocado toast.
2 slices of your favorite bread
1 medium avocado
Optional: additional favorite toppings
Egg: Makes 12 “Eggs” (use 1 per piece of toast)
1 block of firm tofu
1 1/2 cups Water
1/4 cup Almond Milk
2 Tbsp Cornstarch
2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
1 1/2 tsp Turmeric
1/4 tsp Smoked Paprika
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Black Salt (optional, but I promise this is worth buying, it gives the egg the sulfurous taste found in eggs)
Press tofu. If you do not have a tofu press you can always use two small plates and books. Place the tofu between to small plates and layer one book at a time on top, giving about 30 seconds between in order to not lose structure of the tofu. Let tofu sit under pressure for 15 minutes.
Cut Tofu. Cut the tofu into 12 equal sized squares by cutting 6 rows down the long side of the block of tofu, then cutting each of those pieces in half.
Bake the tofu. Line sheet tray with parchment paper and evenly distribute the tofu pieces on the tray. Bake at 425° for ~20 minutes or until the tofu is golden brown, but not crispy.
Optional: using a small circular cookie cutter or a paring knife, cut a small hole in the center of the tofu. This will help to hold in the yolk, but this is mainly for looks.
Prepare the yolk. While tofu is in the oven, make the yolk. Add all ingredients into a small sauce pan and bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Cook for 1 minute then remove from heat.
Toast bread in a toaster until at desired crispiness.
Assemble. Cut avocado in half and remove the seed. Mash half of the avocado and spread evenly onto 1 piece of bread. Place 1 slice of tofu on the bread, and top with 2 tbsp of egg yolk. Repeat if eating 2 slices of avocado toast
Garnish. Add any additional toppings you favor on your avocado toast, I love mine with slices of tomato and fresh basil.
