Time to impress your family and friends with the best avocado toast recipes!
Hong Kong is known for its fabulous restaurant and bar scene, from the best happy hours to hotel brunches and steakhouses. Still, it’s nice to have one trick up your sleeve when you’re making breakfast right? Therefore, we present to you five avocado toast recipes that you can make at home – that are also vegan and vegetarian-friendly. No more paying for overpriced and underwhelming avocado toast on the street, because you already know the best tricks!
Pro tip: Adding lemon juice or lime juice is a must!
First thing first, it’s essential to squeeze a little lemon juice or lime juice over the avocado. Not only does adding lemon juice help prevent avocados from browning, the acidity elevates the taste of avocado and makes it taste ten times better. Trust me on this!
Avocado toast recipes that you need to know
1. Avocado + fresh basil + sundried tomato + chilli flakes
If you’re going for more traditional avocado toast recipes, this one is for you. Put fresh basil leaves and sundried tomatoes on top of your mashed avocado (mixed with lemon juice beforehand), and finish it off with a sprinkle of salt and chilli flakes. The sweet aromatic basil and sundried tomato will come together for a delicious twist on the avocado toast.
2. Avocado + mango + fresh cilantro
Fancy a sweet and zesty flavour? First, mash your avocado and add some lime juice. Put sliced mango and fresh cilantro over the toast – and voilà, here you go – one of the best tropical salsa avocado toast recipes done.
3. Avocado + smoked paprika + nutritional yeast
This is what vegans call, the no-prep avocado toast recipe. If you don’t have any fresh ingredients on hand other than a perfectly ripe avocado, then simply add some spices (that are commonly found in a vegan’s pantry)! Our personal favourites are smoked paprika and nutritional yeast. They give the toast a smoky and cheesy flavour. Easy to make and tasty!
4. Avocado + garlic salt + butter
Garlic makes everything taste better, and so is garlic salt. Melt the butter, spread it with some garlic salt and then put some sliced avocados on it. It’s going to smell and taste amazing, trust me!
5. Avocado + dijon mustard + chickpeas
Looking for more sophisticated avocado toast recipes? A secret ingredient to a smooth and scrumptious avocado toast is dijon mustard. Mash the chickpeas with your avocado (for extra protein and deliciousness), add lemon juice, salt and a spoonful of dijon mustard. It mimics the texture of an egg salad, just healthier and more flavourful.
