Epic Avocado Toast Recipe
So you probably went to some fancy restaurant and they served delicious avocado toast. In your search for an epic avocado toast recipe, you found this post. Well if you like avocado toast you'll love this DIY recipe. (At least we do).
Like any great sandwich don't skimp on the bread. For this recipe we chose a whole marble rye bread from a local baker.
The Secret Weapon
Pickled radishes add a delicious touch to this recipe.
The night before making your avocado toast, pickle some radishes. Slice red radishes in thin slices. In a pot, boil 1 cup of water, 1 cup of white vinegar, 2-3 teaspoons of brown sugar, 2 teaspoons of salt, 3 cut cloves of garlic, 1/2 jalapeño, and some fresh ground pepper. Once the sugar is dissolved, in a mason jar, pour the mixture over the radish slices, and let sit overnight.
We cut nice fresh slices of the marbled rye bread and browned them on both sides in a hot skillet. (We use Earth Balance organic whipped buttery spread and a dash of olive oil). Set aside.
We usually do the avocado last (tends to brown quickly). Slice tomatoes. Dice your dill if using fresh dill. Cut your lime wedges. Then cut your avocados. We like long slices but feel free to make a spread if you wish.
Creating Your Epic Avocado Toast
Spread your favorite mustard on one side of the toast. We use Lemon Tarragon mustard that's "aromatic, sweet and zesty".
Place your tomato slices on top. Next put your avocado slices on top of the tomatoes. Then put your pickled radishes on top. Squeeze on some fresh lime juice. Then sprinkle on some dill herbs. And finally, add a dash of smoked paprika.
Serve on a plate with some fresh herbs and a lime wedge.
