Avocado Toast

What You'll Need:

  • A really good and thick slice of bread.┬áIt's all in the bread for avocado toast. Choose a thick piece of toast (a nutty whole grain is preferred, but a simple sourdough works great, too!) as the foundation.
  • Ripe avocados. The amount of avocados you use depend on how much avocado you want on your toast. I used half an avocado for one slice of sourdough for a semi-thin layer.
  • Lemon juice
  • Olive oil
  • A pinch of salt and pepper
  • A shake of red crushed pepper

Steps:

  1. Toast your bread! You can either choose to toast your bread first, then drizzle a little olive oil over it, or toast your bread in the toaster oven with a drizzle of olive oil.
  2. Mash your avocado(s) in a small bowl with 2-3 drops of lemon juice (for half an avocado) and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. After your bread is toasted, spread your avocado mixture on top.
  4. Shake a little red crushed pepper (again, to your liking) to finish it off.
  5. Enjoy!
