In my old age, I’ve learned a few things: how to trapeze, how to argue fairly and the genius of avocado toast. Avocado toast is delicious, healthy and takes like three seconds to make. It’s the perfect breakfast or lunch, and we’ve even had it for dinner along with tomato soup or scrambled eggs. Lucky for us, the fabulous Jessica from How Sweet It Is agreed to share the perfect recipe…

The Best Avocado Toast You’ll Ever Have
By Jessica from How Sweet It Is

There’s one thing I love to have for any meal of the day, and that’s super crusty, seedy toast layered with smashed avocado. In a perfect world, I would eat this three times daily, with my snacks in between consisting of a form of chocolate, peanut butter and bacon.

While I’m not very picky about how the avocado gets on my toast (leftover guac, anyone?), with much experimentation I have discovered my favorite simple combination. With a few sprinkles of sea salt and freshly grated pepper, followed by a quick spritz of lime, this is a go-to snack that makes its way into my kitchen each and every week. Enjoy!

Recipe: Avocado Toast
Serves two

You’ll need:
4 pieces of multigrain bread, sliced thick
1 perfectly ripe avocado
1 pinch of sea salt
1 pinch of freshly grated black pepper
1 slice of lime

Scoop the avocado out of the skin into a bowl. Sprinkle on salt and pepper, then spritz with one slice of a juicy lime. Mash with a fork (mash well to create a smooth spread, or mash just a few times to create a chunky spread). Toast your bread to perfection, then spread the avocado on top of each slice.

Thank you, Jessica! Who wants some right now?
