Avocado toast seems to be popping up everywhere! This food trend shows no sign of stopping, and for good reason. In whatever iteration you try, avotoast makes a fast and satisfying plant-based meal option that’s nutrient-dense and packed with health benefits.

These savoury and sweet versions boast high amounts of stress-busting B vitamins, especially folate (and B12 in the nooch variety), vitamin C, and magnesium, hormone health-balancing zinc, blood-boosting iron, antioxidant carotenoids and polyphenols, plus protein, unsaturated fats, enzymes… I know I’m in love! Which one is your favourite?

Ingredients:

Savoury Café Zest Fest

  • 1 slice sprouted-grain toast
  • ½ avocado, thinly sliced or mashed
  • Juice of ¼ fresh lemon
  • 1 tsp. nutritional yeast, or more to taste
  • Pinch red chili flakes
  • Pinch Celtic sea salt

Sweet Summer Strawberry Romance

  • 1 slice sprouted-grain toast
  • ½ avocado, thinly sliced or mashed
  • ½ to 1 tsp. maple syrup, to taste
  • ¼ to ½ tsp. raw cacao powder, to taste
  • 3 or 4 fresh strawberries, cut in half

Directions:

Toast bread to desired doneness. Mash avocado in a small bowl or slice, and arrange on toast. If mashing, add the lemon juice for Savoury version, or maple syrup for Sweet version.

For Savoury version: sprinkle on lemon juice if using slices, nutritional yeast, chili flakes, and sea salt (OR mash all Savoury ingredients together in a bowl and spread on toast for the quick-and-dirty).

For Sweet version: drizzle on maple syrup if using slices, and about half the cacao powder. Arrange strawberries on top. Sprinkle on the rest of the cacao powder as desired.

Serve. Makes 1 slice of each.
