Recipe: Healthy Avocado Toast

The other day my friend Dave asked me what I would choose for my last meal if I could choose anything. As somebody who thinks about food a lot, it still stumped me. The easy answer would be the something outrageously expensive, indulgent, and decadent. Something along the lines of uni topped with foie gras and cavier, and showered in shaved white truffles and 24 karat gold flakes! But that would be too obvious.

After mulling over it (for days), it finally dawned on me. I should choose something that I actually crave all the time, like this avocado toast. It’s my definition of a perfect meal. Simple, yet delicious.

By the way, Brock picked an omakase sushi dinner prepared by Jiro. Well played, B! Dave picked a steak with foie gras. Fancy! What about you? What would you choose for your last meal? Tell, tell!

Julie's Kitchen Avocado Toast


Avocado Toast


4 pieces of organic multigrain bread

1 large ripe avocado, halved

1/2 lemon + zest

1 Japanese cucumber, sliced thinly on a mandolin

2 radishes, sliced thinly on a mandolin

1 cup of sprouts (I used broccoli sprouts that I found in the salad section of Whole Foods)

1 tbsp garlic olive oil (I love Lucini’s)

Salt + Pepper


1. Toast your bread lightly.

2. Scoop the flesh out of the avocado and place about 1/4 of the avocado on each toast. Slice it up pretty or smash it on the toast with a fork. Either method is equally effective. :)

3.  Squeeze a few drops of lemon juice on the avocado slices/mash. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper.

4. Top with cucumber, radish, and sprouts. Drizzle with garlic olive oil and lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

    The Little Market tequila cocktail from Mercadito.
    A buffet of mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy, my husband’s roasted brussels sprouts, and fruit cobbler with lots of berries and peaches and coconut whipped cream. BOOM!

    A crispy bacon sandwich made on soft white bread with iceberg lettuce and a fats splodge of tomato ketchup all washed down with a gin and tonic (and as it’s my last meal it would be more than a double measure!)
