The Technique 

Avocado Toast

Knowing when an avocado is ripe is the first step to making any recipe you would like to prepare with this nutrient dense fruit. Avocados are generally sold according to the current demand & may be found in varying degrees of ripeness. Some, such as the Hass variety, may showcase a rich, green color & may resemble a baseball in hand while others may be close to black in appearance with quite a bit of give when lightly pressed. For whatever reason, I tend to find them in the middle of the ripening process in which the fruit displays a greenish-black hue but they are still rather firm. If I pick up a few like that, I know that they’ll be perfect for dips, sandwiches & salads in just a day or two. Once home, allow them to stand on the countertop undisturbed & they do tend to ripen faster when placed near a bunch of bananas. Learn how to make Avocado Toast that’s perfect to serve during the breakfast hour & beyond.

How To Make Avocado Toast

Avocado Toast is such a satisfying, simple meal to prepare. Fresh citrus & a bit of salt & pepper is all that’s needed to make it however hot sauce, herbs & spices can liven up, if desired. Since the fruit is filled with vitamins & minerals, it’s so good for you too. A homemade loaf of Whole Wheat Pain de Mie is the ideal bread to use but I have also prepared it on Oatmeal-Molasses Bread, Farmhouse White Bread & Rustic Country Boule.
