Breakfast

Avocado and Goat Cheese Toast

Vegetarian | Nut-Free
Sometimes the simplest of breakfasts can be the most filling and delicious. Loaded with healthy fats and plenty of savory flavor, this quick, no-frills breakfast can be ready in the amount of time it takes to toast your bread. If you want a little something more, sprinkle on some crushed red pepper flakes, or add 2 tablespoons of pomegranate seeds or 2 slices of crumbled bacon for even more flavor and flair.

Ingredients

  • 2 slices

    whole-wheat thin-sliced bread

    (I love Ezekiel sprouted bread and Dave’s Killer Bread)

  • ½ avocado
  • 2 tbsp crumbled goat cheese
  • Salt

Instructions

  • In a toaster or broiler, toast the bread until browned.
  • Remove the flesh from the avocado. In a medium bowl, use a fork to mash the avocado flesh. Spread it onto the toast.
  • Add any toppings and serve.
  • Option tip: The options for topping avocado toast are endless. Some more ideas include adding a handful of microgreens, a tablespoon of crushed nuts, a tablespoon of Parmesan cheese, a couple of tomato slices, or a poached egg. Just remember that any add-ins will change the nutrient profile.
