Toast Two Ways: Savory + Sweet

1. Avocado + Limed Yogurt Toast With Chili Oil

Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 2 pieces of bread (whatever kind you like — Ezekiel, spelt, gluten-free, etc.)
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1 large scoop of yogurt
  • olive oil
  • red chili flakes
  • salt + pepper

Preparation

1. Toast the bread to your liking.

2. Slice the avocado open lengthwise. Carefully hit your blade into the pit to remove. Score the avocado length and crosswise and remove the flesh with a spoon, dividing it between the two pieces of toast. Using a fork, gently mash the avocado into the toast. Season with salt and pepper.

3. To make the limed yogurt: Place the yogurt in a bowl. Squeeze in the lime juice and zest the lime over top. Season with salt and pepper and mix to combine.

4. Top each piece of toast with the yogurt. Drizzle with olive oil and red chili flakes.
