If you see a recipe on this blog there’s a 90% chance it’s a dessert. We definitely put our time and effort into baking and lack actual cooking skills. Meaning that we eat a lot of frozen pizzas and mac & cheese. As we get older we realize that it’s important to learn how to make dishes that are easy, delicious, and nutritious. If you know us you know that we don’t exactly pride ourselves on our eating habits, so we’ve been trying to find things to make that we actually enjoy, to make the hassle worth it.
I rarely eat meat anymore. Not for any ethical reason, I just don’t really like the taste of it. And Los Angeles is known for their amazing vegetarian and vegan cuisine so I’ve grown accustomed to those types of foods. Because of this, my sandwich of choice lately has been avocado toast (or grilled cheese if I’m being honest). Carli and I loved avocados growing up and that love has definitely continued in our adult life. While our favorite way to eat avocados is still guacamole, we absolutely adore avocado toast. It’s filling and packed with flavor. So we decided to create our own recipe, with ingredients that are easy to find and won’t break the bank.
Here’s what you need:
- Sourdough loaf bread
- An avocado, sliced
- Sliced radishes
- Shaved parmesan
- Crush red pepper flakes
- Balsamic Vinegar
Slice and toast your sourdough.
Add sliced avocado to the toast. You can mash it up if you’d like but we find that the slices look nicer.
Next, top your toast with crushed red pepper flakes.
Then top your avocado with sliced radishes.
After that, top the radishes with shaved parmesan. The parmesan compliments the avo so well!
Last but not least, drizzle a small amount of balsamic vinegar on your toast. This is pungent stuff but it adds so much flavor.
This recipe is so easy and the presentation is really nice. You can easily make this if you’re hosting a brunch of on any given self-care Sunday!
