Ingredients

  • 2 large or 4 small slices of bread (we recommend a fresh sourdough)
  • Fiery chili pesto
  • 4 avocados, sliced
  • A few cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Cilantro for garnish
  • Chef notes

    Need a light snack to tide you over before dinner? Pesto avo toast is the perfect thing!

    Technique tip: The fresher the bread, the tastier the toast. Our favorite bread for toasting is sourdough.

    Swap option: The avocado and pesto are great together, but mix things up even more with a light spread of hummus for some variation and extra protein.

    Preparation

    1.

    Toast a slice of bread.

    2.

    Spread on a heaping spoonful of fiery chili pesto. 

    3.

    Add the sliced avocado and a couple of halved cherry tomatoes to the toast. 

    4.

    Garnish with a squeeze of lemon juice and some chopped cilantro leaves.
