  • 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.

Notes

Use roasted garlic clove for even richer garlic flavor. 
Roasted Garlic:
  • 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.
