Spicy Avocado Toast

The British love things on toast. Beans on toast. Spaghetti hoops on toast. "Fish" fingers on toast. And now (drum roll!) there is avocado on toast! Now you're talking!

From Vegan: Over 90 mouthwatering recipes for all occasions

1 Tbsp olive oil
4 Tbsp roughly chopped avocado
1 onion, finely chopped
1 green chili, finely chopped (opt)
2 pinches of nutmeg
2 slices rye bread
4 tsp of hempseed oil or pumpkin seed oil
salt & pepper

1 sm spoonful of chopped parsley or seaweed flakes
2 slices of lime

1. Heat the oil in a small saucepan, then add the avocado, onion, chili and nutmeg and season with salt and pepper. Fry gently until onion is soft.

2. Lightly toast the rye bread.

3. Drizzle the hempseed oil on to the toast, then spoon the hot avocado mixture on top.

4. Arrange the toast on warm plates, sprinkle with parsley and garnish with the lime slices

EASY right? I took a lot of liberties with this recipe (whole avocado, leftover onion, chili powder, lime juice, etc). But that just proves how versatile and flexible this is! You can't really go wrong when it comes to avocado. Note it made more than what is shown in the picture.

I use avocado on my toast the way otehrs use butter. Much healthier -- and tastier.

It will not succeed as a matter of fact, that is what I consider.
