Avocado pesto toast is a lazy person’s dream breakfast. Check out how to make the perfect bite of this dreamy toast.
I don’t know about you, but mornings are hard for me. I haven’t woken up feeling rested in decades. It always takes me several hours to become fully conscious. So even though I have my breakfast routine, some mornings just require something simpler. And this is one of my go-to breakfasts for mornings when I just cannot pull myself together.
How Healthy Is Avocado Toast?
Avocado toast is as healthy as you make it. If you use whole-grain bread with no added sugar and (in this case) look for pesto sauce without any unwanted ingredients (or make your own), there’s no reason to consider this unhealthy. You’re getting whole grains, healthy fats, and tons of flavor.
What Goes Well With Avocado Toast?
It can be a full breakfast just on its own. But if you want to add more, try a side of eggs and some coffee or tea.
While most people put salt on their avocado toast, resist the urge to add it to this recipe. The pesto sauce has salt, as does the parmesan cheese. So make sure you taste this before you add any salt.
About The Ingredients
Whole-grain bread – Look for bread that is 100% whole-grain and has no added sugar.
Pesto sauce – Look for a sauce with no added sugar. I use Rao’s brand when I buy mine. They have a really clean ingredient list. (Not paid to promote them.)
Avocado – Find one that is not too ripe and not too hard. You have to be able to smash it.
Ground black pepper – White pepper works too.
Grated parmesan cheese – Or shredded parmesan. Whichever you prefer.
How To Make Pesto Avocado Toast
Toast the bread and lay it out on a flat work surface with the other ingredients.
Spread the pesto over the toast, 1 tbsp., on each slice.
Divide the avocado and smash equal amounts on each piece of toast using a fork.
Sprinkle pepper over the avocado.
Sprinkle the cheese over the top.
Serve and enjoy.
While leftovers are unlikely, should you have them, store this in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 or 2 days. Expect the avocado to brown.
