Being a Latina born and raised in California, avocados were a staple in our diet. My mom used to warm a tortilla on the griddle with a smashed avocado in it for our after school snack. So it’s really no surprise that I’m completely obsessed with avocado toast.
I started out with a slice of toasted grain bread, a smashed avocado and a dollop of greek yogurt. I’d top it with Bagel Seasoning and a drizzle of California Ranch Olive Oil.
Lately I’ve been sauteeing some baby kale and small tomatoes on top of my smashed avocado. It’s divine! So today I’m scouring social media for some new ideas. Here are the top 3 that caught my eye to try.
Autumn Avocado Toast
This one from Home Sweet Eats looks amazing! To make it you’ll need:
- 1/4 cup walnuts
- 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 avocados, smashed
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 4 slices bread, toasted
- 1 pear, thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons honey, drizzled
- 2 tablespoons crumbled gorgonzola cheese
Add the walnuts and cinnamon to a small saucepan over medium-low heat and toast until golden and fragrant, about 2 to 3 minutes. Make sure to stir and shake the pan so the nuts don’t burn – you want them golden in color and nutty-smelling. You can break them apart a bit before or after toasting to make it easier to sprinkle them on top.
Combining hummus and avocado? Kitchen Treaty has blown my mind with this one! You’ll need:
Toast the bread as dark as you like it. Scoop the avocado onto the toast. Mash and spread it with a fork. Spread the hummus over the avocado, then lay the cucumbers on top.
Drizzle with a little olive oil and finish with a light sprinkle of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Caprese Avocado Toast
This magical combo from Salt and Wit looks amazing! You’ll need:
- 4 slices Pepperidge Farm Seeded Bread
- 1 avocado, thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
- 1/2 cup mini mozzarella pearls (or sliced mozzarella)
- 1/4 cup basil leaves
- Balsamic Glaze, for drizzling
Toast bread until golden brown. Layer toast with avocado, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, basil and drizzle with balsamic glaze before serving.
