I don’t usually jump on bandwagons, but I could not avoid the avocado toast craze! Avocado toast really is a great lunch. It is quick, easy to make, and very versatile. This Avocado Toast with Citrus Corn Salsa is another great recipe to add to your repertoire!
One of the great things about this meal is the versatility. I kept things simple with the citrus corn salsa topping, but you really have so much room for creativity. The amount of toppings you can put on your avocado toast is never-ending! A few other ideas are:
Hummus, Avocado Slices, Tomatoes
Mashed Avocado, Roasted Red Peppers, Sunflower Sprouts
Mashed Avocado, Spinach, Roasted Eggplant Slices
Avocado, Plantain, Black Beans
Mashed Avocado, Arugula, Sundried Tomatoes, Medley of Olives,
I am gluten intolerant so I love to use vegan gluten free bread (link to my favorite vegan gluten free bread listed below). I have also made avocado toast using ciabatta bread and french bread, but you can use whatever you have on hand.
Health Benefits Of This Meal:
Studies show avocado might help protect our eyes and reduce the risk of Macular Degeneration, a disease that affects the retinas in our eyes.
