I am working on testing the recipes I want to include in my culinary fiction novella. I love reading all kinds of culinary fiction, but books that include recipes are just a bit more special to me. When the recipes are included you can actually make some of the dishes that were making your mouth water while you were reading.
One of the recipes I’m including is a variation of one of my favorite lunches, Avocado Toast. Whenever I find avocados on sale I buy a pile of them. Often I end up eating Avocado Toast for my lunches and snacks every day until my stash of green goodness is gone. So I couldn’t resist putting a version of one of my favorite things into the novella.
To me, the onion powder, salt and hot sauce are all crucial in making this treat, but you can customize it to your own taste. Minced red onion, pickled jalapenos or even salsa would all be lovely. I have even seen a version of this drizzled with olive oil. This certainly isn’t the prettiest thing to look at, but it is definitely tasty!
Have you ever made Avocado Toast or something similar?
2 slices of bread, toasted
Onion or garlic powder
Hot sauce (I prefer Cholula Chipotle)
Salt (I use grey sea salt)
As the bread toasts, remove the flesh from the avocado. Sprinkle with garlic or onion powder and mash with a fork. When the toast is done, spread half of the mashed avocado and on each piece of toast. Drizzle on hot sauce and sprinkle with salt.
