What's Cooking: Simple Avocado Toast

Confession time. I am a hoarder...of recipes, that is. I love collecting and storing recipes. I have a binder full that I've printed out from the internet along with cookbooks with the most beautiful photos of food and the most delicious meals. I'm always amazed at the talent of photographers who can style and shoot food so brilliantly. As you can tell from my photos below I'm definitely giving food photography an honest attempt but have so much to learn. I'm hoping when my new camera arrives tomorrow (I'm so excited!) that I will be able to begin to share better photos.

Back to my confession. I have tons of recipes to choose from yet, I tend to stick with some tried and true favorites. This avo-toast recipe is one of them. This has been my breakfast, lunch and snack at some time or other. It's just so yummy!

I originally found this recipe on Kitchen Daily. I may have changed the recipe slightly but either way I think you're going to like it!

Directions:

1. Slice a ripe avocado in half. Squeeze the meat of the avocado into a small bowl. I like alot of avocado so I actually use a whole avocado. The number of avocados you use will depend on the number of people being served and how much avocado you want on your toast.

2. Cut a lime in half and gently squeeze the juice over the avocado. Again, if I use more avocados then I will use more lime juice. This really is a preference thing. I like my avo-toast with a little zing, hence, more lime juice.

3. Sprinkle red pepper flakes, sea salt, and black pepper to taste in the avo-lime juice mixture. Mix everything together til it's smooth and spreadable.

4. Toast bread slices. I use Ezekiel sliced bread because I think it's a bit heartier but any favorite sliced bread I'm sure will taste great.

5. Lastly, spread the yummy goodness on your toasted bread and enjoy!

TIPToast toppers: I sprinkled sun flower seeds but you can top your toast with your favorite additions such as: sun-dried tomatoes, Semi-Dried Tomatoes, thinly sliced cucumbers, cilantro, sprouts, roasted red pepper, sliced olives, sliced fresh chilies, or whatever you'd like.

That's it! So easy. I hope you will give it a try.

If you do give it a go I'd love to hear about it. You can send me a message at tania@shopindobay.com or you can leave a message on my indobay facebook page.

Happy Friday!
