The Best Vegan Avocado Toast

My Favorite Avocado Toast | Well and Full | #vegan #recipe #avocadotoast

This is the best vegan avocado toast recipe, with grilled bread and a well-seasoned avocado mash to top it off!

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 (what I’m sure is) the best vegan avocado toast, 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. 


Enjoy!

The Best Vegan Avocado Toast

This is my favorite simple avocado toast that I post on Instagram regularly! It's super easy to make, and it's 100% vegan!

Course Breakfast
Cuisine American
Keyword avocado, toast
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes

Ingredients

The Toast

  • 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

Recommended Toppings

  • Hot Paprika
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Red Pepper Flakes

Instructions

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Serve warm and enjoy!

    My version is adding Frontier’s Pizza seasoning to mashed avocado- so simple and delicious. I actually call it my “fancy seasoning” because I have never tasted an authentic Italian pizza, and it tastes nothing like the Americanized pizza I’m used to! I then either top with balsamic glaze, or reserve a portion of avocado that I add balsamic vinegar to instead of the seasoning.

    But the reason I’m posting… I read your post about ditching the vegan label and incorporating animal products back into your diet to heal your digestive issues. I’m thinking that I may be in a similar situation and am wondering how much you generally have to eat in a week to feel the effect. I’m a little scared to consider eating meal and dairy again because I feel that by eating vegan foods I’m doing good by the planet (this thinking has helped immensely with my eating disorder and I no longer worry as much about having a “healthy” diet). I’m hoping to find some courage in your response and maybe some practical advice about when/ how you felt a difference.

      Hi Caia, thanks so much for leaving this review and reaching out!

      It was a very difficult decision to incorporate animal products back into my diet. Unfortunately, the mainstream vegan movement often creates an environment where if you’re not 100% vegan, then any efforts you make to eat plant-based “don’t count”. I want to strongly reassure you that it is NOT the case. Any small choices that include plant-based products – like almond milk, vegan cheese, etc. – do count, and are still good for the planet! Let me gently dissuade you from any all-or-nothing thinking that makes it seem like only complete and total veganism can be good for the planet. You can make sustainable food choices no matter what foods you hope to include in your eating plan!

      That being said, the most important thing I can impart here is that health is different for everyone. If you see someone on social media saying veganism can work for everyone, that’s a huge red flag. Some people’s bodies have completely different nutritional needs than others’. For example, supplements (like vitamins, iron, etc.) can be a great addition to any diet, but oftentimes they are not as bioavailable as whole-food sources of the same nutrients.

      I can tell by the sincerity of your words how much you care about the planet. I invite you to show the same care and love to yourself :) I have also struggled with orthorexic eating in the past, and still do to some extent. I used to view eating as this stressful event, where I had to have the “perfect” meal or else I would have “messed up” my day. Instead, now I think of eating as an opportunity – to get nutrients, feel good, or enjoy a certain meal. Now I’ll say to myself, “I’m glad I ate those potato chips – the salt is a good electrolyte and they were super crunchy and enjoyable!”. Or if I’m getting takeout and the food isn’t technically “healthy”, I’ll frame it in my mind as – “I’m so glad I didn’t have to cook, and instead get to enjoy some comfort food with my husband!”. I don’t know if this would help you as well, but I thought I’d share!

      I feel much better as a non-vegan not only because there are more food opportunities available to me, but because I feel free from restrictive and arbitrary “rules” that were causing me a great deal of stress. You DESERVE to feel well and healthy, and you can still make sustainable choices doing so. I hope this helps :)
