As some of you might have noticed, I’ve been all over the place lately. Juggling between work, the last finishing touches of the new house, social events and emotional fatigue (due to everything that’s been happening in the world, touching our most favorite places), I have come to neglect Breadonbutter. I honestly feel like I’ve been neglecting my child. I think about it all the time and feel guilty – just like all the moms out there; and whenever I see something related to food or travel, or think of a story that would be interesting to share, I immediately jot it down on my blog to-do list. Knowing me, the fact that this love story between that website of mine and myself will be hitting three years in December, I just know it’s going to last forever. So no matter how long I’m away, know that I’ll always be back to share interesting stories, recipes, DIY projects and travel guides with you all.
Since I’ve also been too busy to cook, I’ve been all about easy, fast but nonetheless healthy recipes lately. The one I made today for lunch literally took 5 minutes, and it was completely satisfying and delicious. What I love the most about this recipe is that it can be made for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Whenever you’re in need of a healthy and boosting breakfast, this should be your go to. When you’re looking for a lunch recipe on the go, this is it. Finally, when you get home from work craving something flavorsome but can’t deal with cutting vegetables and washing the dishes, well that’s the recipe you should opt for! The seasoning will depend on the time of day. Whether it’s for lunch or dinner, add some chili flakes to give it a punch. Lemon juice can also be avoided for breakfast.
So there it is. Fresh avocado toast topped with tomatoes and basil.
What you’ll need (for 1 person)
- Half a whole-wheat baguette
- Half an avocado
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 0.5 Tbsp olive oil
- 0.5 tsp ginger powder
- A pinch of salt
- 2 small tomatoes, sliced coarsely
- 2 large basil leaves
- Chili flakes (optional)
How to make it
- Slice the bread in half and grill them until crunchy.
- In a bowl, crush the avocado with a fork, then add the lemon juice, olive oil, ginger powder, and salt, and mix until combined.
- Spread the avocado on the bread, place the tomatoes then the basil on top and sprinkle with chili flakes.
Enjoy the flavors 😉
