Avocado Toast

Published by on

How many times do you really want to fuss with making a
fancy lunch during the week? For me, I want something quick, tasty and healthy.
Avocado is one of my go-to’s. I’ve been told it’s a “super food”, like you
could live for a very long time eating avocado alone. Though I don’t know if
there’s any food I would be content to eat for the rest of my life.
There’s a restaurant near my old apartment in NYC, Café Getane,
on Jane Street. I love their Avocado Toast. It’s simple and delicious and
always fills me up. This is an ode to those lovely lunches with friends at that
adorable café.
Yield: 2 pieces
Time: 5 – 10
2 pieces of your favorite bread (multi-grain,
French baguette, etc.)
1 Avocado
½ Lemon
Salt and Pepper
Chili Flakes (optional)
Garlic (optional)
Onions (optional)
Olive Oil (optional)
1.     There
are two ways you can go with this. The first is to toast the bread, the second
is to do what I did in the pictures and make garlic bread out of it. If you go
with that direction, here’s what I did.
2.     Heat
up oil in pan with garlic clove cut in half and onion left as a large slice.
Once the garlic and onions are browned, I
moved them out of the way and laid the bread in the oil and toasted it on both
3.     In
a bowl, lightly mash up the avocado and squeeze in lemon juice and salt and
pepper to taste.
4.     Spread
avocado mixture on toast and garnish with chili flakes or tomato…or both!
