We have a short and sweet Meatless Monday post today – avocado toast! Avocado toast is one of my favorite healthy snacks. It is quick, filling, and healthy. There are many variations you can make too, such as adding other veggies, adding a meat like prosciutto, adding cheese or adding various seasonings. The recipe I’m sharing today is a basic avocado toast recipe that you can build from and this is the standard way I like to eat avocado toast. The recipe can easily be multiplied depending on how many people you’re feeding. If you cut the toast into small pieces, it makes a great appetizer. Note: This recipe can be made gluten free by substituting your favorite gluten free bread.
Start by mashing the avocado in a bowl. An avocado is ripe if it is a little soft when you squeeze it. It should look something like this:
Add it the salt and pepper and mix well.
Toast the bread in a toaster, on broil in the oven, or on the grill. Spread the avocado on the toasted bread. Top with arugula. That’s it!
