California Avocado Toast

Avocados fall into the category of my favorite foods on the planet. They’re so nutritious, full of good fats and now being called a super food. I’ve been eating them for their wonderful good fats all of my adult life. When I moved out to California recently, I couldn’t wait to get my hand on the local avocados, and in my mind I thought they would be a lot more economical than in the grocery stores of the Midwest. Much to my surprise, they’re not- and avocado toast at some local cafes can be upwards of $13 per sandwich! Not cool, California…

Well, avocado toast is the easiest thing on the planet to make yourself, if you like. My California twist involves a little red pepper, Himalayan salt and extra virgin olive oil. 

Ingredients for California Avocado Toast:
2 pieces of bread, 1-2 large avocados (one per sandwich), extra virgin olive oil, sea salt or Himalayan pink salt, red pepper flakes

Simply toast or grill your bread of choice and brush a little extra virgin olive oil on each piece.

Remove the pit of one large, ripe avocado and mash the flesh in a bowl.

To the bread, add spring greens or arugula, then a handful of the mashed avocado on each piece of bread. Drizzle with olive oil.

Add a pinch of salt (Himalayan or sea salt) and a pinch of red pepper flakes on top, as well.
