Savory Avocado Toasts

Avocado toasts are not going away anytime soon, spicy friends! We love this beautiful and tasty treat when we are craving something savory and delicious to start the day.

When I created the You’re So Spain spice blend, it was originally for use in making Paella. And it was and still is the best organic blend out there for it. As time went on I began using it in so many other things and realized how wonderful it is on fish, chicken, vegetables, and especially on my avocado toasts.

These toasts are perfect for any time of the day, really and if you top them with a poached egg, you will be in heaven!

Ingredients

Makes 2 servings

  • 2
    slices fresh bread, toasted (seedy, rustic, you name it, it still works!)
  • ¼ cup
    mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp
  • 1
    medium ripe avocado
  • ½ cup
    watercress or any fresh greens  (arugula, etc)
  • 4
    cherry tomatoes halved
  • microgreens for garnish
  • sea salt and fresh pepper

Preparation

  1. In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise and the You're So Spain spice blend until well combined. Add a pinch of sea salt.
  2. Halve the avocado and remove the pit and discard. Peel the skin off of each half and place open-side down on a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, thinly cut the avocado half into ¼ inch slices.
  3. Place the toasts on the cutting board. Spread the spiced mayonnaise on each slice. Top one with one whole half of the avocado. You can mash it or leave the slices in tact. Sprinkle the avocado with more You're So Spain spice blend and sea salt. Add the watercress and tomatoes on top.
  4. For the second toast, change it up! Layer the watercress on top of the spiced mayonnaise and top with the avocado slices. Sprinkle with more You're So Spain spice blend and sea salt.
