Statistically speaking, the more avocado toast you eat, the closer to Gwyneth Paltrow you become. I am all for things that turn me into a blonde leggy goddess.
However, I couldn’t get behind avocado toast. Try as I might, it was flavorless mush. UNTIL NOW! I have had this for breakfast three days in a row, and once for dinner last week with a fried egg. If you are not yet an av0-convert, I recommend you try this recipe. If you already love the ‘cado, then this will be a nice variation! Double, triple, or quadruple the recipe as you like.
- 1 piece of hearty bread
- 1/2 a ripe avocado
- 1-2 tsp. chia seeds
- 1-2 tsp. nutritional yeast
- 1-2 tsp. Dijon mustard
- Sprinkle of Himalayan sea salt
- Sprinkle of cayenne pepper
- Pan-toast the bread (we don’t use a toaster, and instead dry-toast it on a grill or frying pan for 1-2 minutes on each side).
- Meanwhile, mash the avocado, spices, and other bits in a bowl. You can do this the night before for an easy morning!
- Spread the avocado on the toast. It should be a nice, thick, even layer. Enjoy!
- We eat white bread. There, I said it. Revoke my Goop subscription. I believe that a hearty, quality slice of bread a few times a week is not the antithesis of a balanced diet. This week we have a sesame seed loaf from Whole Foods, next week it might be a whole grain from the local bakery.
- Some of the ingredients (like pink Himalayan sea salt) might seem a little too fancy-pants, but we buy all our fancy-pants items at Whole Foods’ bulk section at fantastic prices. We bought a jam-jar worth of the salt for $3.50, plus the chia seeds, nutritional yeast, and cayenne pepper for a steal.
- Dijon mustard is definitely the secret ingredient here. It adds an unbeatable brightness to the avocado. Mine is from Organic 365 and was really inexpensive.
Yes, we shop at Whole Foods a lot. Its part of the Full Gwynnie Transformation.
