Vegan Avocado Toast Recipe:
- 2 slices whole-grain bread (choose gluten-free if desired)
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Optional toppings: red pepper flakes, nutritional yeast, chopped fresh herbs (parsley, cilantro), sliced tomatoes, microgreens
- Toast the slices of whole-grain bread until they are golden brown and crispy. You can use a toaster, oven, or stovetop for toasting.
- While the bread is toasting, prepare the avocado. Cut the ripe avocado in half, remove the pit, and scoop the flesh into a bowl.
- Add the lemon juice to the avocado. Using a fork, mash the avocado and lemon juice together until you achieve your desired level of creaminess. You can leave it slightly chunky or make it smooth, depending on your preference.
- Season the mashed avocado with salt and pepper to taste. Mix well to evenly distribute the flavors.
- Once the bread is toasted, spread the mashed avocado evenly over the slices.
- If desired, top the avocado toast with optional toppings like red pepper flakes for a hint of heat, nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor, chopped fresh herbs for freshness, sliced tomatoes for extra juiciness, or microgreens for added nutrition and color.
