Avocado Garlic Toast

  • avocado garlic toast

    It is not my alarm clock that wakes me up in the morning.  It’s usually my empty stomach telling my brain to wake up because I’m hungry.

    During busy weekday mornings, I don’t like to fuss too much in the kitchen creating something elaborate or time-consuming.  I want something handheld that I can eat while I watch the morning news before I head out.

    Avocado garlic toast is one of my favorite snacks/meals/foods.  It is so simple yet so tasty and satisfying.  You simply take a piece of toast, rub some fresh garlic on it, and top it with lightly smashed avocado.  I like to sprinkle a some red pepper flakes on top for a little heat.  To amp up the garlic flavor, I used a roasted garlic loaf.  Any crusty bread will do, even crackers work in a pinch.  Just be sure to brush your teeth after eating this, unless you want to taste garlic all day.

    You can call this toast in the morning, a tartine (open face sandwich) for lunch, or a crostini to accompany your evening drinks.  It can be whatever you want it to be.

    Simple things like this make me and my tummy happy.
