Garlic Avocado Toast
Avocado garlic toast is a quick and easy, yet satisfying breakfast or snack. Use roasted garlic cloves for even richer garlic flavor!
Servings: 1 (multiply as needed)
- 1 slice bread of your choice
- 1 garlic clove, raw, peeled
- ½ ripe avocado
- pinch kosher salt
- freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- crushed red pepper flakes, to garnish
Toast sliced bread to your desired doneness. Rub garlic clove all over toasted bread surface.
Scoop out avocado meat. Place in a small bowl. Season with kosher salt and pepper. Lightly mash with a fork.
Spread smashed avocado over toast. Sprinkle crushed red pepper flakes on top for heat. Enjoy immediately.
Use roasted garlic clove for even richer garlic flavor.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Peel the papery outer layers of garlic head (bulb) until the cloves are exposed. Using a sharp knife slice off about 1/2-inch from the top of the cloves to expose the garlic. You may have to angle your knife to expose the cloves on the outside.
Place garlic heads in an oven safe pan (muffin tin or ramekin work great). Lightly drizzle a olive oil over each garlic head. Rub olive oil over each exposed garlic clove. Cover garlic heads with aluminum foil.
Bake for 30-40 minutes until the garlic cloves can be easily pierced with a fork. Allow garlic to cool. Once garlic is cool enough to handle, extract the roasted garlic by squeezing the bulb.
