Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 2 Avocado Toasts

Ingredients

Pesto

  • 1 Cup Herbs packed - I used half parsley, half cilantro
  • 1 Small Clove of Garlic
  • 1/3 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Juice + Zest from 1/2 a Lemon
  • 1/4 Tsp Pepper
  • 1/8 - 1/4 Tsp Salt to taste

Avocado Toast

  • 2 Slices Bread of Choice
  • 1 Avocado
  • Tahini
  • Black Pepper
  • Red Pepper Flakes

Instructions

  1. Start by making the pesto - combine all pesto ingredients into the food processor and process it until smooth. You want it to be a little liquidy - it's much easier to drizzle on toast that way. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.
  2. Toast your bread - either use a toaster, or sauté the bread in a little olive oil until the bread is brown on both sides.
  3. Prep your avocado - slice the avocado in half and remove the pit. Carefully, make cuts into the avocado to make thin slices. Then, using a spoon, scoop the slices out of the avocado.
  4. Assemble your avocado toasts - layer the avocado slices on to the toast (see the photos as reference). Then, drizzle a little bit of the pesto and the tahini onto the toast. Top with black pepper and red pepper flakes if you'd like a little spice.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
