How to make Avocado Toast


Avocados are a fruit that may be sliced, mashed, or filled. The creamy, buttery texture elevates every dish. There are several health advantages that go along with their rich flavour, most notably their healthy mono and polyunsaturated fat content and antioxidants like as beta carotene.

Avocado is the star of this popular, dare I say fashionable, meal that continues to captivate people.

Let's talk about avocado toast, shall we? One of my favourite quick meals is creamy avocado spread on well-toasted bread. In fact, it's one of my all-time favourite breakfasts. It's one of life's simplest joys because it's so tasty.

So today, I thought I’d share my basic recipe, with my best tips and favorite variations. I hope you find some helpful tips and some fun new ways to change up your toast. Onward!

How to make avocado toast

There are only two must-have components; toasted bread and sliced or mashed avocados. From here, you can keep it simple with seasonings or get more creative with various toppings.

1) Select quality avocados.
Great avocados should be ripe but not overripe. Choose avocados that give slightly when gently squeezed, but avoid those that are mushy or stringy within. When you cut them open, scrape out any bruised or brown portions and discard them before mashing the remaining.

2) Purchase decent bread and toast it well.
The greatest avocado toast, in my opinion, is made using firm, thick-sliced whole grain bread. The golden, well-toasted bread provides a solid foundation and a crunchy, jarring contrast to the creamy avocado.

3) Separately mash your avocado.
Avocado that has been mashed is more creamy and luscious than avocado that has been sliced (think guacamole vs. plain avocado). However, don't crush it on your bread! You run the danger of piercing or breaking your toast. Cut your avocados in halves, remove the pit, and mash the flesh with a fork in a dish or on the side of your plate.

Using a large number of avocados at once? Instead of a meagre fork, use a potato masher or pastry cutter.

4) Don't forget to add salt to the mix.
At least a pinch of salt should be added to each avocado half. Are there any extra points? Finish with a little sprinkling of flaky sea salt on your avocado toast.

Bonus Tips

Here are a few easy ways to take your avocado toast up a notch. Pick one or a few!

Add garlic: Lightly rub a peeled raw garlic clove over the top of your toast before adding the avocado, or mix a tiny pinch of garlic powder into the avocado.

Add fresh leafy herbs or your favorite herbed sauce: Chopped fresh basil, cilantro, dill or parsley are all good with avocado. So is a drizzle of pesto, zhoug sauce (spicy cilantro sauce), or chimichurri.

Put an egg on it: I love to top my avocado toast with a fried egg for extra protein (example here). You can do a poached egg or scrambled egg if you prefer.

More extras: Quick-pickled onions or radishes or jalapeños, your favorite hot sauce, or a sprinkle of sliced cherry tomatoes.
