My Go-To Avocado Toast Recipe

My go-to avocado toast recipe, inspired by a Nashville coffee shop!

When it comes to whole food, plant-based vegan recipes, the recipes I love most are often quick to make and easy to assemble. That’s where my go-to avocado toast recipe comes in! A couple of summers ago, Ben and I took a spontaneous road trip to Nashville, Tennessee. We visited a coffee shop called Crema, and their avocado toast was so delicious — when we returned home, I put my own spin on their recipe with the ingredients we had, and it’s quickly become my favorite way to make avocado toast!

Easy Avocado Toast Recipe

The best part about avocado toast is: You can make it your own! You can add more of what you love, experiment with different toppings, and create a recipe all your own. I’ve experimented with adding pomegranate seeds, tempeh bacon, and more. I’m excited to share my go-to avocado toast recipe, a recipe packed with nutrients and full of flavor. I hope this recipe inspires you to find a combination you love and enjoy, too!

Supplies and Ingredients

  • Toaster

  • Citrus Squeezer

  • 1 Slice Whole Grain or Sourdough Bread (Toasted)

  • 1 Avocado (Peeled, Pitted, and Lightly Mashed)

  • 1 Teaspoon Lemon Juice

  • ½ Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes

  • 1 Handful Broccoli Sprouts

Directions

  1. Peel, pit, and lightly mash avocado. Set aside.

  2. Toast 1 slice of whole grain or sourdough bread to your desired level.

  3. Spread lightly-mashed avocado on toasted whole grain bread.

  4. Slice and squeeze about 1 teaspoon of lemon juice on top of avocado toast.

  5. Sprinkle about ½ teaspoon of red pepper flakes on top of avocado toast.

  6. Spread 1 handful of broccoli sprouts on top of avocado toast. Serve and enjoy!

Again, the best part about avocado toast is: You can make it completely your own! I’ve experimented with adding pomegranate seeds, tempeh bacon, and more. So, I hope this recipe inspires you to find a combination you love and enjoy, too!

Why is my avocado toast recipe healthy?

You might be wondering: What makes avocado toast healthy? For me, it’s all about the whole food, plant-based ingredients included in the recipe! Here are the latest findings from NutritionFacts.org:

  • Whole Grain Bread: Eating whole grain bread appears to lower the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and stroke. (Source)

  • Avocado: Avocados are a healthy source of fat, and help our bodies to absorb more nutrients from other whole foods we consume. (Source)

  • Broccoli Sprouts: Broccoli sprouts may suppress cancer cell growth. (Source)

As you can see, today’s recipe is packed with nutrients and full of flavor, too! Finding new ways to make everyday recipes more flavorful with spices has been one of my personal favorite parts about eating a whole food, plant-based vegan diet.
