This recipe is one of my absolute favorites for avocado toast! It originally is from the cookbook "Chloe Flavor" by Chloe Coscarelli and its been my go to when I need something more than just cereal for breakfast. I made a few adaptations, so be sure to try both this and the original recipe as well. Very filling, savory, and delicious!
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 slices bread, toasted
optional sesame seeds, paprika, or red pepper flakes to top
1 tsp lemon juice
3-4 fresh basil leaves
1 TBS olive oil
First, in a food processor combine the avocado, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and basil. Season generously with black pepper and blend until smooth. Toast your bread for about 2 or 3 minutes and then top with avocado spread.
Another option would be to chop the basil and add to mashed avocado with the olive oil and lemon juice. Stir in salt and pepper. Spread onto toast.
Next, top with a seasoning of choice. I prefer sesame seeds or paprika and if need be, a little more lemon juice. You could even drizzle with olive oil if you want!
