Intro to Cooking: Avocado Toast


Hello, my name is Michelle and I’m addicted to avocado. It started simply enough: guacamole. But it transformed, slowly, to an obsession with this fruit. I could eat it on anything: burgers, with french fries, grilled with a salad… It’s delicious. It’s green. It’s one of the best sources of protein and good fat out there.

Avocado is the easiest super food for college students to eat. Yes, they’re a little expensive, but good ones are easy to find, easy to store, and especially easy to put on pretty much anything and everything.

Avocados are excellent sources of vitamins E, C, and B6, as well as niacin and zinc. They’re also excellent sources of healthy fat, as well as protein.

Ready for an amazing, easy recipe involving some avocado? This recipe is great for an easy snack or even as a great late breakfast (you know, like those days where you wake up at 1pm?)

Avocado and Toast

You’ll need:

  • 1/2 of a ripe avocado
  • salt
  • pepper
  • about 1 teaspoon of toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1-2 slices of bread

How to make it: 

In a small bowl, scoop out the flash of half an avocado. (Wrap the other half tightly in plastic wrap and keep it in the fridge.) Add salt and pepper to taste, plus about 1 teaspoon of toasted sesame seeds. Mash with a fork – it doesn’t have to be smooth. Begin toasting 1 or 2 slices of bread (I really like french bread for this). When the bread is toasted, brush with a little bit of olive oil and rub the garlic clove across the bread. Top with avocado and enjoy!
