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

“I’m the GM for Branson [Ultrasonics] and based in the Brookfield office.  This is the first week that the café has been up and running in our new headquarters and just want to acknowledge the great job Adam Schnittert and the CulinArt staff onsite have done.  Our employees’ feedback thus far has been very positive.  The expanded options and menu quality have been very well received.  Just want to send you a quick note of thanks.”

“I just wanted to express my thanks and give two thumbs up for the updates to our lunch menu. My selections have been quite tasty—corned beef Reuben, jambalaya—and I appreciate that, too! I am looking forward to trying some new items in the coming weeks. Keep up the good work!”

“We want to take a moment to celebrate all the employees who worked on the front lines during unprecedented times. Your efforts and dedication to going above and beyond are noticed and appreciated. Thank you for being the heart and soul of CulinArt Group. We couldn’t do this without you. Chef Jay and Chef Paul have been so awesome in the Hubbell Café.  There has been significant change, but they take it in stride and keep the delicious food coming.  We truly appreciate them!”

“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…”

“This has been a year of unprecedented uncertainty, but through it all, Denee, chef Darby, Samantha, and the whole CulinArt team, provided the best dining experience the school has had in my thirteen year tenure.  It was an absolute pleasure to work with them, and I can't wait for next year when the craziness of COVID brings everyone back into the dining hall for meals. We look forward to working with Denee, Chef Darby, Samantha, and the rest of the CulinArt team again next year.”

“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 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.”

“We were totally impressed by the presentation and care in which these new team members were brought into the CulinArt family. So happy we made the decision to choose CulinArt Group.”

“Even though we see challenges every day, each one of you rises to the occasion and makes it seem so easy. I cannot express how impressive it is to see you all work in such a fashion. You are true professionals.”

“I just wanted to touch base as another school year draws to end. I cannot thank you enough for how smoothly this year went. Chef Felix [Herrera] and his staff made it seamless in a year with lots of wrinkles.    ”
