Who doesn’t love starting the day with a good slice of avocado toast? It’s quick, it’s yummy, and it’s oh-so Instagrammable. But why settle for basic when you can have spectacular? Here are three creative ways to upgrade your avocado toast.

Incorporate Unusual Toppings

While the classic avocado toast benefits greatly from salt, pepper, and perhaps a splash of lemon juice, consider upgrading with fresh herbs like chopped basil, cilantro, or dill. Or, for a tangy contrast to the creamy avocado, try adding pickled red onions, capers, or even pickled radishes.

Experiment With Bread Choices

Switching up the type of bread you use can significantly impact the texture and flavor profile of your meal. The tangy flavor of sourdough pairs beautifully with the richness of avocado, making it a popular choice. For a healthier option, whole-grain bread adds a nice crunch and extra fiber. 

Drizzle With Flavor

Consider drizzling avocado oil or extra virgin olive oil infused with herbs like rosemary or garlic over the top for added depth. A drizzle of balsamic reduction can add a sweet and tangy element that works well with the creaminess of avocado. Or, add a layer of hummus under the avocado or a swipe of pesto on top for a flavor-packed bite.
