Avocado Toast Recipe

A homemade delicious and healthy Avocado Toast Infatuation on a black table.

Here’s the thing about avocado toast, though… Yes, there’s a thing. As there is with any social phenomena, such as the avocado toast has become.

It doesn’t exactly require a Le Cordon Bleu certificate to make. Or a recipe, for that matter.

All you’ll need is bread of some kind (preferably something sturdy to hold up to the weight of the fatty fruit), ripe avocado and whatever you want to season it with.

The challenge of course, is finding a ripe avocado.

There’s a trick to finding a perfectly ripe one. I don’t know where I learned this but it’s never failed me; I obviously picked it up somewhere. Select an avocado that’s pleasantly plump, not too hard and still has the little tip intact. Pull it off. If the avocado is green underneath, it’s ripe! If it’s brown, it’s over-ripe. Put it back and choose another.

  • Spread the avocado mixture on toasted bread, top with pepper flakes and cheese. Push down to secure. Finish with a few sprouts or shoots.

Notes

Haloumi or Sanganaki cheese are both waxy cheeses that won't melt easily so they're great for grilling or searing.To really amp up this meal, toss the sprouts or shoots in a bowl with a little good quality olive oil and salt and pepper. I'm a firm believer in always dressing greens - never put 'em naked on a plate.
