This is my favorite simple avocado toast that I post on Instagram regularly! It’s super easy to make, and it’s 100% vegan!
On my Instagram feed I have a ton of photos of this avocado toast, but I realized I’ve never really written up an official recipe! Avo toast has cemented its place as one of the top food trends over the past few years, but I definitely think it’s earned the hype! I love having this recipe for breakfast or a snack because it combines carbs for a quick energy boost + healthy fat from the avocado, which keeps me full.
This recipe is for a simple avocado toast that’s totally vegan, but you could mix it up with whatever toppings or additions you like. Here are some variations that would be super tasty:
1 // Pesto Avocado Toast
While mashing the avocado, swirl in about a tablespoon of your favorite pesto. My Vegan Kale Pesto recipe is perfect for this! For toppings, add on some toasted pine nuts or walnuts and chives.
2 // Everything Bagel Avocado Toast
After you toast your bread, add on a thin layer of your favorite cream cheese, then add on the avocado. OR, mix in about 1-2 tbs of cream cheese with the avocado. Top the toast with everything bagel seasoning.
3 // Sunny-side Up Avocado Toast
For a vegetarian version, top the toast with a fried egg, extra black pepper and red pepper flakes, and some sprouts or microgreens.
4 // Avocado Bagel Toast
Try this avocado mash with a bagel instead of bread! I would recommend trying this out with spinach, garlic, everything, or sundried tomato bagels.
Simple Avocado Toast (Vegan)
This is my favorite simple avocado toast that I post on Instagram regularly! It's super easy to make, and it's 100% vegan!
- 2 Slices Sourdough Bread
- 1/2 Avocado
- 1 Tbs Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice or more to taste
- 1/4 Tsp Salt or more to taste
- Black Pepper to taste
- Hot Paprika
- Pumpkin Seeds
- Red Pepper Flakes
Start by toasting or grilling your bread. I highly recommend using sourdough, but a whole grain loaf or gluten-free bread would be great too!
While the bread is toasting, scoop out the avocado from its shell, and mash in a bowl with the lemon juice, salt, and black pepper. You can definitely use a whole avocado if you'd like, just add in more seasonings to your preference.
Once bread is toasted, spread the seasoned avocado mash onto the toast. Add whatever toppings you like... I always add hot paprika, pumpkin seeds, and chili flakes.
Serve warm and enjoy!
