3 quick and easy ways to pimp your avocado on toast

There’s nothing more satisfying than a ripe, buttery avocado spread across a crisp piece of toast for breakfast.

But sometimes it’s nice to change things up by adding a new texture or flavour.

Why not give your avocado on toast that something extra? Add seeds for some crunch, introduce colour with bright red tomatoes, or go for a tangy take on the popular dish by crumbling over some feta cheese.

Begin with your basic avocado mixture – mash an avocado with a fork until smooth, season with salt and pepper, and mix to combine.

Then it’s as simple as adding one of the below toppings to make your avocado on toast a little bit fancy.

1. Sprinkle with seeds

A great way to enjoy avocado on toast is to top it with seeds. They add a lovely crunchy texture and give the avocado on toast a slightly nutty quality.

Simply sprinkle some sunflower seeds and sesame seeds over your avocado on toast – it not only looks pretty but tastes good too.

2. Top with tomato

Finely slice some blushing red tomatoes to layer on top of your avocado on toast.

But here’s a tip: opt for vine-ripened or cherry tomatoes because they’ll add an incredible layer of flavour to your avocado on toast.

The tomatoes bring another fresh ingredient to this dish, along with that all-important Vitamin C.

3. Finish it with feta

If you love a savoury breakfast, then you’ll love crumbling some feta cheese over your avocado on toast.

Greek feta, in particular, will add a rich, slightly tart and salty quality to your avocado on toast, giving it a nice contrast.

Add a squeeze of lemon juice if you really love playing with those sour flavours.
