Sometimes you just don’t have time to cook but you want something healthy to eat. Today I am sharing one of my favorite meals for when I’m in a hurry. A quick, tasty, satisfying meal can come together in five minutes. Avocado Toast is SO easy to make and is just Yum! This is heart healthy, dairy-free, vegan and low sodium so it is good for almost any diet! If you are keto, the toast could be replaced with some keto bread (recipe coming soon!) or you can use the avocado mixture as a dip for Keto Crisps (recipe also coming soon!).

It is one of the simplest things to prepare and if you are anything like me you will find yourself making it often! I change it up a little each time. I will sometimes add things to the top. I will slice up a fresh tomato from the garden and add to it. Other times I will add some alfalfa sprouts. You can buy them at your local farmer’s market, or you can easily grow your own at home like I do.  I will post about that soon! Another unexpected topping for this avocado toast is some nutritional yeast. You might be scratching your head wondering if I am crazy for eating yeast. This is NOT the yeast you use in bread making. This is a wonderful vegan option when cheese is out of the question. It gives a hint of cheesy flavor without adding dairy to your diet. I find myself using it on many things, from the avocado toast to veggie chili to sautéed veggies and more. It is truly wonderful.

Avocado Toast is one of my favorite "quick and easy" heart healthy recipes. This tasty dish can be eaten any time of day. It makes a great breakfast, lunch, snack or even a light dinner. There are many ways to change it up since it is so versatile. You could add some sliced tomato on top, some hemp seeds, some chia seeds, some nutritional yeast flakes or some alfalfa sprouts. The possibilities are endless!

Notes

Avocados are ripe when they change from a bright green to a darker color and feel softer to touch.

Cut avocado in half lengthwise, leaving the pit, twist and it will split evenly.

You could opt to blend it, but smashed will leave some tasty chunks of avocado for texture.

You can add some seasonings and garlic to the avocado mixture as well. Oregano, garlic, parsley, basil and chili powder are all great options.

Dave's Killer Bread is my favorite brand of whole grain bread.

Nutritional yeast will add a bit of a cheesy flavor that mixes well with the avocado.
