Let me explain the title. I went out for brunch this past weekend and everyone around me was ordering the avocado toast (naturally, I ordered it too). Then, I went to a coffee shop and they were serving avocado toast. Since then, I’ve noticed avocado toast on menus EVERYWHERE in NYC. If you haven’t tried this trendy staple, now’s the time to jump on the bandwagon. Rather than pay $10+ for it at a restaurant, why not make your own at home?
This is so easy that I’m not even sure it should be considered cooking. It’s more like compiling ingredients. My version of this trendy new food item is smoky and salty, and I think it’s going to be crowd pleaser. And, avocados contain “good” monounsaturated fats, which are great for your heart.
