In the now defunct Saveur magazine, I came across avocado toast. Wow, I couldn’t believe that one of my favorite whole foods, avocado could go well with toast?
Yes, it was a trendy new food item in restaurants where they would charge a premium price for something you can make so easily at home! Seriously, it’s only a few ingredients.
Avocado a whole food that contains healthy fats. Plus, avocados add savoriness to any dish and they’re very versatile.
Add them to a dish as is or bake with them in place of butter or oil.
If you’re a vegetarian or on a low carb diet, try adding avocados for more satisfying meals.
One of my favorite recipes featuring avocados is Buttery Avocado Garlic Toast. It’s sophisticated, satisfying, and makes a perfect party appetizer.
With a hint of garlic and butter, it puts this avocado toast over the top!
