Friends! Get pumped, because today, I present to you a fun round up of avocado toast recipes – mix and match style!
I’ve been in love with avocado toast for a while now – it’s delicious, filling, and so good for you with all the healthy fat! Avocado toast with a fried egg has become one of my go-to breakfasts (and lunch, snack, and dinner, let’s be honest…) but I love experimenting with new flavors and testing out new toast toppings to share with all of you!
These recipe ideas are mostly savory, because you guys know I’m a savory girl, but there are a couple salty/sweet combos and a fun all sweet option at the end for my chocolate lover readers too. Enjoy! :)
Basic Avocado Toast: Here’s your starting point! Toast with smashed avocado and a dash of salt and pepper.
Fried Egg Avocado Toast: Top your basic avocado toast with a fried egg! This is one of my favorite quick breakfasts – it’s filling and satisfying, yet so simple.
Hummus Avocado Toast: Swirl hummus in with your mashed avocado, then drizzle with olive oil (optional). I also love this with a flavored hummus, like roasted red pepper or garlic. It’s so easy to add flavor and creaminess without any extra effort!
Arugula & Goat Cheese Avocado Toast: Top your avocado toast with a handful of arugula, crumbled goat cheese (or feta), and a squeeze of lemon. Spicy, creamy, and tart lemony goodness! This would also be awesome with a fried egg on top (as would just about any avocado toast, come to think of it)!
Black Bean & Salsa Avocado Toast: Top your avocado toast with salsa, black beans, and cilantro. The black beans add protein and fiber, while salsa and cilantro add a Mexican flair. :)
Citrus & Mint Avocado Toast: Top your avocado toast with segmented orange and grapefruit and chopped fresh mint. I love the combination of juicy, tart citrus with creamy avocado and mint – it’s so refreshing!
Tuna Avocado Toast: Mix drained canned tuna into the avocado, then top with a squeeze of lemon. This makes a delicious protein-packed lunch, and a yummy alternative to traditional tuna salad.
Strawberry Balsamic Avocado Toast: Toss sliced strawberries with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, then pile on top of your avocado toast! The unexpected combination of strawberries and avocados works really well, especially with the rich tartness of balsamic vinegar.
Curried Avocado Toast: Mix a few dashes of curry powder with avocado, then top with chickpeas, sliced red onion, and cilantro. I love the earthy spiciness of curry with the avocado toast – and this is made even more satisfying with chickpeas and the freshness of onion and cilantro! It’s one of my favorite creative avocado toasts.
Mediterranean Avocado Toast: Top your avocado toast with chickpeas, tomatoes, crumbled feta cheese, and chopped fresh basil. Who doesn’t love a little feta and tomato action, right? It’s like a more filling caprese salad, thanks to the protein-packed chickpeas.
Smoked Salmon Avocado Toast: Top your avocado toast with smoked salmon, sliced red onion, capers, dill, and a squeeze of lemon. This is perfect for a weekend brunch – smoked salmon always feels so fancy! Fresh dill, tangy lemon, sharp red onions, and salty, briny capers give it a good balance of flavor.
Chocolate Avocado Toast: Mix one tablespoon cocoa powder and 1-2 teaspoons maple syrup into 1/2 a mashed avocado; top with berries. This one is so delicious – almost like chocolate pudding on toast :) Trust me on this one and give it a shot when you’re in the mood for something sweet – it would make an awesome satisfying but fun afternoon snack!
