Avocado Toast with Lemon

Updated: Nov 18, 2018

One would think you don’t need a recipe to make avocado toast (you don’t), but I must say there is an art to achieving both its simplicity and perfection.

My tips: make sure you choose a sturdy, flavorful bread fairly thickly sliced, enough salt and citrus to bring out the flavor of the avocado, and premium olive oil.

Avocado Toast

Serves 2

2 large slices sturdy bread, thickly sliced

1 ripe avocado, halved and pitted

extra-virgin olive oil

half lemon or lime

salt and freshly ground pepper

dash red pepper flakes

1. Toast the bread until browned and crisp. Drizzle the hot toast with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Using the back of a fork, roughly mash a ½ avocado into each slice of toast, keeping it chunky. Sprinkle with a little more salt and black pepper and squeeze the juice of a lemon or lime on top. Finish with a dash of red pepper flakes and serve immediately.
