If you’re like me, you’ve also seen the avocado toast craze take off the last year or so. While I love avocados (I did grow up in LA, after all!), I refuse to pay $10 for it at a restaurant and always experiment with different recipes at home. I’ve gone through dozens of versions, but I keep coming back to this simple, fresh recipe that I absolutely love that uses scallions, lime, olive oil, and sea salt. For a heartier version, I add arugula and a side of eggs (or, if you really want to impress your friends, try this).
Make sure you use a good, seedy bread (I like to buy mine at a bakery up the road) and fresh herbs. Pro tip: Wrap your herbs in a paper towel with a splash of cold water, and keep in a large ziplock bag in the fridge to make your herbs last longer.
What’s your favorite way to make avo toast? I’d love to hear! For more ideas, check out my previous entry on my favorite 6 ways to make it.
One last tip: always serve with a small garnish so your guest will know which ingredients you used!
