Avocado Toast


  • 1 ripe avocado, halved and pitted
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice, plus more to taste
  • Sea salt and coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 thick-cut slice seeded multigrain bread, toasted
  • ½ teaspoon pepitas
  • ½ teaspoon sesame seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon red-pepper flakes
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling


1. In a medium bowl, combine the avocado halves with the lemon juice and a pinch of salt and pepper. Using the back of a spoon, lightly smash the avocado until chunky but not yet a smooth spread. Season to taste with additional lemon juice, salt and pepper, if needed.

2. Arrange the toast on a serving plate and spoon the avocado onto the middle of the toast. Spread the avocado slightly to cover the toast. Sprinkle the avocado with the pepitas, sesame seeds and red-pepper flakes, then drizzle with olive oil before serving.
