Ways to Spice Up Basic Avocado Toast

Are you tired of the same breakfast every day and want to try something new?

Well good news! As we mentioned on the Spring Seasonal Fruit blog last week, avocados are now in season and a great addition to your breakfast meal. They are loaded with healthy fats, fibers and various nutrients that can keep you feeling full throughout the day.


Avocados can be enjoyed in many ways like in guacamole, salads, dressings, and the best one of them all, on toast! The simple way of preparing it is by mashing a ripe avocado, toasting bread, and adding spices such as salt and pepper to your desire.

If you are looking for other ways to enjoy such a filling and simple meal, here are some ideas to take your basic avocado toast to the next level.

 1. Add an egg on top

Adding eggs to your avocado toast is a great way to add more protein to your meal. Eggs can be made boiled, fried, scrambled, or pouched. Top with some spices and you are good to go!

2. Spice it up

In any dish, herbs and spices play an integral role in creating flavor. Besides for your basic salt and pepper, try spices that are fresh or dried such as garlic powder, red pepper chili flakes for a nice kick, fresh parsley or cilantro, dill, zaatar seasoning, everything bagel spice, or lemon salt.

3. Add some texture

Avocados are soft in texture; topping your toast with some crunch can enhance every bite.  Texture can be added with raw vegetables such as radishes, sweet peppers, scallions, red onions, tomatoes or cucumbers. You can also add some fried onions, nuts or seeds (sesame, pumpkin) for more flavor.

4. Make it cheesy

Cheese is another protein you can add to your avocado toast. Try adding feta cheese or some melted shredded mozzarella. For a vegan option, you can sprinkle some nutritional yeast for that cheesy flavor! You can even make a caprese styled avocado toast with mozzarella balls, fresh basil, and cherry tomatoes drizzled with balsamic vinegar, yum!

5. Choose the right bread

Picking the right bread is key to making the perfect avocado toast. A bread with the correct amount of crunch and crispiness will make it or break it, literally. You will need a sturdy and medium-thick base to be able to hold all your toppings. Breads such as sour-dough, whole grain, or rye are great options to use. Also remember to toast your bread nicely brown for that irresistible bite.

6. Add some color

At this point, your toast is your canvas. More color means more flavor, especially with vegetables! Topping your toast with more green leafy vegetables such as arugula, spinach, or sprouts can add more nutrients to your dish. Pickled onions or jalapenos can also add a nice bite. Other protein options such as smoked salmon, turkey slices, and tuna are great selections as well.  Vegan friendly protein options can be beans such as edamame, chickpeas, kidney beans, or even black beans.

What our clients are saying

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”

“Thank you and your staff for all the care and thought you give CSW adults and students. You approach events with such care and elegance- I don’t know how you do it! Especially day after day. Please thank all your staff for their wonderful work and kind manner with all of us. Here is to a great year!”

“Many, and I do mean many, thanks for a great Parents Weekend.  I heard from so many happy parents and you all work very hard to make it happen.  In gratitude and kindness…”

“We are so thankful and so impressed by your immediate attention to our power outage. It was such a relief to see all the equipment and workers coming in within a few hours of the outage. Thank you for serving dinner to all [the] students in a very difficult circumstance. Please extend our thanks to your workers who braved cold weather to grill hamburgers and hotdogs.”

“With all the prep work from Winterim ramping up and classes continuing as usual, it's a busy time to be a Forman teacher. Imagine my delight, tired as I was, when I delved into the upscale-restaurant-quality chicken parmesan our dining hall served last night. Forman is all about support, and providing our students with a dinner of that quality is just as important a measure of support as anything that happens in a classroom.”

“I can’t thank your entire team enough for the outstanding service, food, displays, everything!  You are a master at detail, and because of that Adam and I were able to focus on the parents.  I know what a sacrifice pulling off a weekend like this means, we are so appreciative and grateful to you all for your talent and generosity.”

“I ALWAYS feel spoiled by the meal offerings at CSW (The Cambridge School of Weston) and am entirely grateful for it. As I eat today's delicious and lavish lunch (and think about yesterday's as well), I can't tell you how much I feel so well cared for here, both with the food and by the dining hall staff. CSW cares for us in so many ways, both big and small.”

“Thank You! Chef Budd [and team], you overcame a new online ordering system (and hundreds of labels daily!), provided creative and healthy menus, continued to connect with local farmers to incorporate locally sourced ingredients, and worked tirelessly to serve the school community on three campuses.  While it feels like you are all a little like the Wizard of Oz right now, working behind a curtain in a kitchen far away, we sense your smiles and your passion to deliver the best possible service during these trying times. We are all so grateful!”

“I will say that CulinArt has always been a very collaborative partner to T. Rowe Price, listening to our current needs and future goals and suggesting realistic and achievable strategies to meet those goals.  2020 was obviously no exception.  CulinArt also altered other areas of our OCS and pantry programs to create safer environments for all our associates. We can only thank you for your continued flexibility and innovative ideas through these difficult times.”
