Ingredients for Avocado Toast

Avocado: Choose ripe avocados that have black skin and feel just slightly soft when squeezed. Once your avocado is ripe, it can be stored in the fridge for a couple of days before cutting to stop it from becoming overripe.

Bread: Avocado toast is great on almost any kind of bread. I like either sourdough or artisan bread, but using whole-wheat or sandwich bread will work, too.

Garlic: Garlic is optional, but rubbing the hot toast with a clove of whole garlic adds great flavor.

Toppings: Sprinkle with salt and pepper, or add your favorite toppings. I’ve included a list for inspiration below.

Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Scoop out the avocado flesh with a spoon and add it to a medium bowl. Use a fork to mash, leaving some small chunks. Toast the bread to your liking.While the toast is still hot, lightly rub the surface with the cut side of the fresh garlic clove (optional).Divide the mashed avocado over the toast and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.If desired, drizzle with fresh lemon juice and olive oil. Serve immediately.

The avocado can be mashed as smooth or as chunky as you’d like it. Avocado oxidizes (turns brown) quickly, so mashed avocado should be eaten right away.
If using only half of the avocado, leave the pit in the half that will be refrigerated for later use. This will help keep it fresh a bit longer.
