Avocado Tomato Toast
I had heard about avocado toast being on hip restaurant menus, but I hadn’t tried it yet. I mean, let’s be honest, the idea of avocado with toast sounds a bit strange at first. Then one of my friend’s told me that avocado toast was one of her favorite things to have right now. Then I went to go visit my parents for the weekend and my mom told me that I had to try Avocado toast with toppings. Creamy Avocado seasoned and mashed, spread over crisp toast then sprinkled with crunchy cherry tomatoes and fresh cilantro. It sounded a bit different, but I was all for trying it. And I am glad that I did. It’s delicious! Plus, avocado is good for you too.
I re-created my mom’s creation when I got home and I wanted to be sure to share this simple and delicious Avocado Toast recipe with you.
Avocados not only taste great, but they are great for you. Avocados have almost 20 vitamins and minerals in every serving, are low in sugar, contain fiber, and are high in the good for you fat. I love the added flavor of the fresh cilantro on this avocado toast recipe, but if you don’t like cilantro, feel free to leave it off or consider adding fresh parsley. I also added fresh lime zest for an extra punch of flavor, making the mashed avocado almost like fresh guacamole 😉

We had this for breakfast, but it would really be great anytime of the day. In fact, I made it for lunch the other day. Another delicious avocado toast topping is an egg, I would definitely still keep the tomatoes on there too, but adding hard-boiled egg slices or a over-hard egg would add a little extra protein too.
