Avocado Toast

Avocado toast is still at the top of my list for plant-based breakfasts. You can garnish it with so many different toppings, so you'll never get tired of it. Sweet things are good too, but I prefer to start my day with something savory most of the time.

I tried avocado toast topped with chunks of baked sweet potato last week. It was strange. I probably won't do that again.

This toast has a layer of Muhammara under the avocado. Muhammara is a delicious Middle Eastern dip made with red peppers, breadcrumbs, pomegranate paste, and other delicious ingredients. I purchased mine at a Middle Eastern store, but you can make your own using this recipe.

This toast starts with a layer of classic hummus. On top of the avocado, I added some roasted red peppers and arugula. I don't like arugula in a salad, but when you put it on top of things, the spicy flavour disappears. It's a good way to get more greens in. Put them on top of other, more delicious things.

Ideas for topping:
salt & pepper
roasted red peppers
hemp and chia seeds
leafy greens
tomatoes (fresh or sundried)
chopped red onion
pickled onions
chili flakes
hot sauce
sliced mango
roasted chickpeas
toasted pumpkin seeds
fresh herbs

Ideas for spreads:
olive tapenade
sundried tomato tapenade
baba ganoush
