Avocado Toast 3 Ways

Would we even be vegans if we didn’t have an avocado toast recipe on our blog? It’s taken us almost three years, but it’s finally here. However we didn’t give you one recipe, instead we’re giving you Avocado Toast 3 Ways. All delicious, all vegan.

So what makes a good avocado toast? Firstly there’s the bread. You want something hearty and delicious, but it also needs to have good structure so it doesn’t get soggy. We typically like a thick-cut sourdough bread, but for these recipes we’re using our favourite store-bought sliced bread; Silverhills. Next we’ve got the avocado. Timing the perfect avocado is truly an art. In our experience you want your avocado to be a deep green, slightly soft to the touch and top step should have fallen out on it’s own. Then you pray it doesn’t have a big pit. Lastly the toppings. This is where things can get interesting.

From savoury to sweet, these three avocado toast options will get you through the day satisfying all your avocado cravings. Whether it’s for the healthy fats or simply the delicious taste.

For our first recipe, we opted for a Greek-style toast featuring balsamic glaze, vegan feta cheese and a cucumber and tomato medley. Check out the full recipe and video below.
