Rainy days are simply yummy cozy days. I absolutely love it when it rains in the city. I get to move around with a more of a chill attitude while I catch up on apartment things, walk my pup and make this delicious avocado toast!
This is a simple fixin. Something to snack on when you don’t feel like making anything too complicated. Meaning, anything that requires turning on the stove and measuring anything. These ingredients are so healthy and packed with tons of nutrients. PLUS avocado is the good fat. And major benefit of avocado is that they don’t have any cholesterol. Zip. Zilch. Zero!
Ingredients for Edamame Avocado Toast
Avocado – An avocado that has just ripened, and doesn’t have any black spots inside. Sometimes you can’t really know what you get on the inside but for the most part, you can tell a good avocado by giving the avocado a gentle press with your finger.
Sourdough bread – Artisan sourdough bread that comes in the large long slices is the best for this avo-toast.
Edamame – You can either use frozen or freshly steamed edamame. These tender pops of crunch are a perfect addition to simple an avo-toast. Obvi!
Watercress – These small leafy greens offers the perfect amount of bitterness.
Olive oil – I use extra virgin olive oil for it’s richer, more concentrated olive flavor.
Salt flakes – Is all salt just salt? No way! I think flaked salt is like gold.
Cracked black pepper – A good quality pepper grinder is such a wonderful way to round out this avo-toast.
