I admit I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, so I will always prefer something savoury for my breakfast.
This suggestion is not different from my usual concept – it should be delicious, provide with enough nutrients and also very quick to make. I am not a morning person so it makes so much sense to me.
The below recipe is great because it is also very balanced – it contains good fats (read, you are not going to starve before lunch), plant based protein and very good amounts of carbs from high quality bread.
Just a quick remark on the latter – spend just a tiny bit more on a high quality sourdough bread, this is how your bread is supposed to taste like: a little coarse, not so soft and tender, but made of wholesome unrefined ingredients. The dough usually is ready in 12-36 hours, so it is a slow process and that’s how it’s supposed to be! It is only in our days people go after a quick buck and they produce bread from ultra-refined flour and make it as quickly as possible. Avoid that!
Crushed avocado on sourdough toast
Yield 4 toasts
It just could not be easier. Simply source good quality sourdough bread and ripe avocado - you are good to go!
I have added a tablespoon of chopped coriander (cilantro) and a few chopped tomatoes to this mix. It gives crushed avocado some vibrancy and extra freshness.
For two people (2 toasts each):
- one ripe avocado
- 2-3 small cherry tomatoes
- 4 slices of sourdough bread
- few sprigs of coriander (cilantro)
Remove avocado flesh and simply crush it with your fork. Chop tomatoes and coriander, add it to crushed avocado. In the meantime, toast your sourdough slices (make sure you don't burn it as it won't be very healthy for you).
Simply place your avocado mixture on top of your toast and enjoy!
P.S. If you've made a bit more of avocado mix, you can preserve it in the fridge for a few days and use it for you burrito later on as something similar to a guacamole.
