In case you needed some toast inspiration this week, here’s a delicious open-faced sandwich that involves one of the best foods of all: avocado. Avocado is one of my all-time favorite foods, and not just because you can make guacamole out of it. It’s creamy and just has a fantastic flavor even plain. Toast is also one of my favorite foods, so spreading avocado on it is pretty much a recipe for success in my book.
This delightful little open-faced sandwich is one that my dad taught me how to make. This recipe certainly isn’t rocket science, but I hope that you can enjoy it as much as I have. Or use it as a jumping off point to make your own toasty open-faced masterpieces.
The Avocado Tomato Open-Faced Sandwich
- 2 pieces of bread
- 1/2 of an avocado
- 1 small tomato
- A pinch of salt
- Several slices of vegan cheese (optional)
First, put two pieces of toast in the toaster. Then, slice your tomato and avocado.
Then, lay out half of the avocado slices onto a piece of toast.
Sprinkle a pinch of salt onto the avocado slices and spread them across the piece of toast.
Lay several slices of tomato on top of the toast.
At this point, you can either dig in, or, if you have it on hand, lay a few slices of vegan cheese on top of the tomato. The cheese adds a little extra deliciousness, but the fresh fruit (it’s weird that both of those are fruits, I know) is fantastic on its own. Enjoy!
