Avocado Toast with Radish Sprouts

by Anne Paddock

…the avocado is a food without rival among the fruits, the veritable fruit of paradise.   ~David Fairchild

How hard is it to make avocado toast? Not very but if you truly want extraordinary avocado toast then there are a few ingredients you need to use starting with a good loaf of bread – preferably a whole grain baguette that can be toasted yet still have a chewy interior texture.Second, really great avocado toast requires a top-notch avocado. Choose Haas – a pebbly skin avocado that is smaller than the smooth skin Florida avocado, if available. The best are at Trader Joe’s. The avocados are typically hard and green but within 4-5 days, the avocados ripen slowly without rotten spots or dark vine lines through the pulp of the fruit.

The toast and the avocado are the foundation of avocado toast but what takes avocado toast from good to great is the addition of a squeeze of lemon, a touch of salt, and radish sprouts. Slice an avocado in half, scoop the interior fruit into a bowl. Squeeze a bit of lemon juice over the avocado and add a touch of salt.

Smash the avocado lightly with a fork and add a touch more of salt. Pile the smashed avocado on the toasted bread pieces and top with radish sprouts (a member of the mustard family that have a slightly spicy, hot flavor; look for them in the refrigerated area of your grocery store where other sprouts are sold) and chopped sweet Villagio Marzano tomatoes (also available at Trader Joe’s) for the perfect avocado toast.

    Radish sprouts are so good. I use finely chopped Italian Parsely when I can’t find them. Different taste, similar texture effect, complements avocado nicely. Tasty post thank you.
