For good reason, avocado toast is all the rage these days. It’s not just a “hippie granola crunchy munchy” thing. Anyone could fall in love with these. Think of bread and butter — but thicker, lighter, and creamy with that perfect balance of salt and lemon. Mmmm.

The Basics:
How to Make Avocado Toast

  1. Toast your favorite bread.

  2. Add perfectly ripe avocado, spreading it like you might spread butter or peanut butter. (Ripe avocado hint: If it’s too hard to press into the avocado a bit, wait longer. If it’s mushy, you may have waited too long!)

  3. Add salt on top to taste.

  4. Squeeze a touch of lemon or lime juice on top at the end.

  5. ENJOY!

You can definitely get fancier than this by adding eggs, onions, black pepper, and so much more. But in our opinion, the above is like the “bare minimum” for a great avocado toast.
