My personal avocado toast recipe

I don’t like to make a big thing out of identifying with my generation, but millenials have one things right: avocado toast is the perfect breakfast food. This is my very simple and quick recipe, which, yes, I did invent.


Recipe time: ~5 minutes

Yields: 4 slices

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices of bread for toasting (I like a thick wholewheat)
  • 1 ripe Hass avocado
  • 1-2 cloves raw garlic, minced*
  • 4-5 dashes of smoked paprika (substitute regular paprika)
  • Salt to taste (I use ~1/4 tsp total, but I really like salt)

Toast the bread however you like it.

Bisect the avocado and remove the pit. Score the avocado flesh with a knife, being careful not to cut the shell. Divide the minced garlic, salt, and paprika between the halves of the avocado.

Mix and mash the contents of each avocado shell with a fork.

Divide evenly among the pieces of toast and spread with fork.

Aaaand, you’re eating your nutritious, savory breakfast after just 5 minutes!


*The raw garlic does not burn because of the fattiness of the avocado. You might want to mouthwash after eating though if you have someone to see, though.
