Toast is having a moment. It's the latest artisanal food craze in San Francisco.
I, like many, think $10 toast is humerous. Fancy toast? Really?
Well done, hipsters. Well done.
But, another part of me totally gets it. Such a simple dish, yet endlessly adaptable. Top it with artisanal butters, homemade preserves, heirloom tomatoes with sea salt ... whatever you want for any type of meal.
Juice from 1/2 a lime
Sea salt, for topping
Pepitas, for topping
2 slices bread, toasted
While bread is toasting, smash avocado and lime together in a bowl.
Spread avocado on warm toast with a fork. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepitas to your taste. Serve warm.
These were so, so good. A fantastic breakfast for a busy Saturday.
Even after running errands and going on a little hike, I was still super full. Avocado is the best.
Here are some other terrific ideas for fancying up your avocado toast:
Or just make it into a grilled cheese. I might have to do that this weekend.
