Happy Wednesday!! How’s it going for y’all? Over here in Connecticut we got a bit of snow, though I think less than was expected. I don’t mind it, but I’m already in spring mode. I just LOVE spring… it’s such a beautiful time of renewal, growth, and revival. Plus, I absolutely love spring food. I’m ready to break out this roasted asparagus pasta, and my healthy green shamrock shake!
So today’s recipe is a little quirky. Have you heard about that guy who said millennials could be buying homes, if only they stopped buying avocado toast? His statement has since been thoroughly debunked, but I wanted to make this recipe as a tongue-in-cheek response to it.
But how to make avocado toast more millennial? Well, I could hardly put a unicorn frappuccino on top of toast, but figured ramen would go nicely! I loved that packaged ramen in college, but I’ve noticed more and more restaurants are carrying gourmet versions nowadays. But I drew the line at simple ramen – there was no way I was going to make a millennial pink version.
It might seem like ramen on top of toast would be weird, but I loved the combination and I hope you will too! If not, you could just eat the ramen and toast separately… the ramen is stir-fried with sriracha, tamari (or soy sauce), and ginger, so it’s super flavorful and tasty on its own. Plus, making avocado toast at home saves money – maybe you’ll be able to buy a house with all that extra cash! ;) Cheers!
The Most Millennial Avocado Toast
This Millennial Avocado Toast combines two delicious millennial staples - ramen and avocados. And did I mention it's vegan, too?
The Avocado Toast
- 2 Slices Your Favorite Bread toasted
- 1 Avocado cut in half, and sliced thin
- Squeeze of Fresh Lime Juice
- Sesame Seeds
- Black Pepper
- Chili Flakes
- 1 Pack Ramen Noodles flavoring discarded
- Neutral Oil for sauté
- 1 Tbs Soy Sauce
- 1 Tsp Sriracha
- 1 Tsp Fresh Grated Ginger
Bring a small pot of water to boil. Add in ramen noodles and cook for 3 minutes (or however long the package says). When done, drain.
In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, sriracha, and grated ginger.
Bring a little neutral oil to medium heat in a sauté pan. Add in ramen noodles, and coat with the sriracha soy sauce. Sauté for a few minutes, until ramen noodles are slightly browned.
Putting it All Together
On your toasts, add on the avocado slices and squeeze a little fresh lime juice on them. Top with the ramen noodles, then add on as many sesame seeds, black pepper, and chili flakes as you like.
For full millennial effect, serve for brunch with unicorn lattés.
