Are you perhaps tired of avocado on toast, or perhaps are you not the biggest avocado fan and are looking for some other yummy alternatives? Well, you are in luck because we have got you covered. In this article, we will explore 3 yummy, healthy alternatives to avocado on toast!
Hummus on toast
Hummus on toast is absolutely delicious, especially if you use some ciabatta bread and lightly toast it. Hummus is very healthy and is a good source of protein as it is made from chickpeas. It is also fully vegetarian so even vegetarians can enjoy this treat. There are so many different variations to the basic hummus recipe out there, so if you find yourself bored of the basic hummus you can even explore a bit! What about a spicy carrot hummus that contains harissa? Or perhaps you would prefer a curried sweet potato hummus with coconut oil to add some creaminess to the whole thing? There is even a herby avocado hummus recipe available online for those of you still craving avocado but just something a little different. For a creamy hummus, combine 30 oz drained of canned chickpeas, 1/3 cup chickpea liquid from the can, ½ cup tahini, ¼ cup olive oil, the juice of 2 lemons, 2 garlic cloves, 1 teaspoon cumin and ½ teaspoon salt in a food processor and blitz it until it is smooth. It can be served and enjoyed immediately!
Peanut butter and banana on toast
This alternative is also great, especially for kids that love their peanut butter! Once again peanut butter is a great source of protein and fat, and this breakfast option also adds banana so it is a perfectly balanced and filling meal. If you want this breakfast a bit sweeter, you can even add some honey or syrup on top. If you find yourself getting tired of peanut butter, why not explore other nut butters? Almond butter is delicious and very creamy. There are so many others to also explore like walnut, cashew, macadamia, and even hazelnut nut butter. For a delicious nut butter recipe, take 3 cups of almonds and roast them in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. They can then be added to the food processor once cooled with ¼ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract, and 2 tablespoons maple syrup and combined until smooth. This almond nut butter is definitely a must-try!
Pesto, feta, and egg on toast
This is a delightful breakfast option and also a very filling meal for those of you who need a bit more in the mornings. The egg is a wonderful source of fat and protein and can be added onto the toast in any form, but we recommend poached egg! Pesto adds that zingy, spicy deliciousness to this breakfast. Just remember to prepare your pesto with extra virgin olive oil instead of other oils like canola. Lastly, the feta just balances the breakfast out by adding some dairy. You can add as much feta as you like but just remember that this breakfast is already quite filling. For a quick homemade pesto recipe, combine 1 cup of basil leaves, 3 cloves of garlic, 3 tablespoons of pine nuts, and ⅓ cup of Parmesan cheese in a food processor. Add salt and pepper to taste and add ⅓ cup of extra virgin olive oil and mix well. Enjoy!
