Are you in love with the smashed avocado toast trend? I know I am. And it doesn’t hurt that I have a 50-year old Fuerte avocado tree growing in my front yard, which supplies me with hundreds of avocados every year (don’t hate me!). My son Nicholas is the grandmaster of avocado toast, making a batch almost every day. He helped me create his favorite, pictured above. You can master the art of a really simple avocado toast, which you can then build upon with additional toppings. We love to serve this Rustic Garlic Avocado Toast on toasted freshly baked bread we get from our farmers market, but you can use it any whole grain toast you like.
As we made avocado toast today, I picked a dill flower from my garden to adorn the toast and placed it on the vintage wood bench by my vegetable garden. A volunteer scallop squash vine just happened to photo bomb this picture, as it wrapped it’s tendrils around my bench.
And that’s just how avocado toast should be enjoyed—simple, rustic, deliciousness at it’s earthy best—with a little kick of the unexpected if you so desire it! I am sharing a list of 24 of my favorite avocado toast toppings to go with this recipe too!
