I first had avocado on toast when I was living in Sydney, Australia. I went to this cute little boutique coffee shop around the corner from my apartment and saw it on the menu. It was absolutely delicious. The bread – good. The avocado – good. The coffee – good.
Ever since then I’ve been hooked on avocado toast.
If I’m at home fixing something for myself I’ll reach for a good whole wheat slice of bread, always toasted first. When I have friends and family or guests over, I put the mixture on top of a “fancier” bread like a french baguette or bruschetta bread.
Get your ingredients together and we’ll slice the avocado open, being mindful of the large pit in the middle. Take a fork or spoon to scoop out all the avocado into a bowl and start mashing. Sprinkle some salt to taste. Some people like to add crushed black pepper as well. I prefer to leave this out because I simply don’t enjoy the pepper on the avocado.
Now cut the grape tomatoes in half and lightly sprinkle with salt.
I wasn’t joking when I said this was going to be the easiest avocado and tomato toast you’ve ever made. I love, love, love to eat this in the morning with a side of soft scrambled eggs and coffee. I also enjoy this as an afternoon snack when I’m busy and on the go. If you like a hint of spicy, crushed red pepper flakes lightly sprinkled on top is a nice fix.
