Ingredients you’ll need
- 2 Slices of Bread - You can use gluten-free or any type if you’re not avoiding gluten.
- 1 Ripe Avocado
- Cherry Tomatoes - You can use grape tomatoes instead if preferred or use heirloom cherry tomatoes to change up the color.
- Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
- Lemon Zest - You can leave this off if you prefer.
- Salt - I used fine sea salt, but you can use coarse sea salt if you prefer or whatever salt you have on hand.
- Freshly Ground Black Pepper
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil - You can use plain or change up the flavor by using a garlic-infused, lemon-infused or basil-infused extra virgin olive oil instead.
- Balsamic Glaze - My favorite brands are 365, Nonna Pia’s and Thrive Market. You can use balsamic vinegar instead, but note that it won't be as thick.
How to make tomato avocado toast
First, toast the bread to your liking.
Then, use a fork to mash the avocado with the lemon juice in a small bowl.
Spread half of the mashed avocado mixture onto each slice of toast.
Slice the tomatoes into thirds and evenly distribute on top of the mashed avocado on both pieces of toast.
Season with salt and pepper and then drizzle on olive oil and balsamic glaze.
Garnish with lemon zest if desired.
- This tomato avocado toast should be made at the time you are going to eat it. I do not recommend making it in advance because it does not keep well as the bread can become soggy and the avocado can brown.
- Be sure your avocado is ripe or it will be difficult to mash.
- You can easily multiply this recipe if you need more servings.
