“Not Your Bestie’s” Avo-Toast



Ahhh….the love/hate we have with Avocado toast.

It is good, full of healthy fats, but I know, I know, it has been so done already.

But what if we could take it to another level of taste? One that refreshes and ignites your tastebuds first thing and delivers an amazing balance of everything you need to start your day?

Stand back, here is an avo toast that delivers on all flavour fronts.

I am on a major Moroccan food kick. MAJOR. Like, if someone buys me a new tagine pot for Christmas I will love them forever.

Best thing is, this is SUPER easy. Here is my recipe, ENJOY!!!


“Not Your Bestie’s” Avo-Toast

Bread: Choose freshly-baked sourdough and grill

To make the spread: In food processor, blend: 1 mint leaf, 1/2 tsp parsley, chopped, 1/4 tsp smoked paprika, 1/2 tsp hot sauce, pepper and salt to taste, 1/2 tsp lime juice, fresh. 1/4 tsp olive oil (EVOO), 1-2 artichoke palms whole (cooked) 1 large avocado (1/2 in mix, other half roughly smashed into mixture after mixed).

To add if wanting protein: Top with either a poached egg or smoked tofu patty if staying full veg/vegan (if you want a recipe to make an easy smoke tofu patty, let me know!)

Topping: (if vegetarian) Take 3 tsp feta cheese and mix with 2 tbsp sour cream and add a dash of lime juice and a pinch of salt. Whir up until smooth and pipe or spoon over toast, once assembled.

The result?

Cooling freshness that wakes your mouth up combined with smoky, salty heat from the spread and a tangy, mouth-puckering mouth-gasm when combining the egg and feta crema (I added some sriracha to mine – hence the colour…I like spice).

So delicious and good for you, this may be my new “go-to” avo toast for keeps!
