If your’e looking for a healthy avocado toast recipe, but sick of the same old same old, this is for you! Because we lived in San Diego for 3 years and we actually even had an avocado tree in our front yard, we ate a lot of avocado toast. This recipe has been perfected & leveled up time and time again until we landed on this recipe.
We have been eating all the variations of avocado toast and I’ve been getting creative! I feel like I’ve come up with the perfect combo that always leaves you feeling full and like you’ve eaten a good meal. Avocado toast used to be sooo good only at restaurants and I couldn’t figure out why we couldn’t duplicate it at home. … until I started getting creative.
Every avocado toast recipe starts with some good bread. I usually choose something like sourdough or sweet wheat. Then you need some butter! We try to stick to grass-fed butter from our local farm. It’s really good and has all those amazing raw benefits!
Of course, avocado comes next. Then your seasonings! I think this was what ours was missing at first. I use a tiny bit of onion powder, a tiny bit of garlic powder, salt and pepper and finish it with olive oil for the perfect avocado toast recipe.
Then the magic ingredient!

Top Your Avocado Toast Recipe with Pickled Onions:
2-3 cups water
1 cup vinegar
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup syrup
a squirt of Dijon mustard
a few cloves of crushed garlic
salt and pepper
add chili flakes if you want it to be spicy
Bring the mixture to a boil just for a couple minutes. Let it stand to cool at least 20-30 min. Put it in a glass jar and immerse the veggies in the liquid. You want it to sit in the liquid for at least 30 min but a couple hours is better.
Take them out as you need them! We chop them up and put them on top of our base avocado toast recipe and boom done.
