Since having a quick 18-month vegan stint I have a special place in my heart for Avocado toast. Perfectly filling, naturally delicious and easy to make! When I spot avocado toast on a menu, I know the chef has a soft spot in their heart for Vegans and Vegetarians…. I always try it.
Deep in the heart of the Hollywood Hills, on the Sunset Strip there is a charming spot called Eveleigh. At night time, you can find tasty small plates, hand crafted cocktails, beautiful people, ….. but for me Eveleigh is all about the beautiful, breezy Brunch with a view. There are not too many vegetarian-friendly items on the menu, and the egg dishes didn’t overwhelm my taste buds, but all was redeemed with a side of their Avocado Toast and French press coffee. Check them out…. http://www.theeveleigh.com
Recently I concocted a very special Avocado toast worth sharing:
Chili Basil Avocado Toast or AAA(Alisha’s Awesome Avocado Toast)
Toast 3 Slices hearty bread (Udi’s Gluten free bread is a great alternative)
Slice 2 Ripe avocados and spread onto the toast
Chop up a handful of fresh basil leaves
Sprinkle basil onto toast
Sprinkle 1 teaspoon chili flakes over toast
Place 6-7 Roasted Pepitas(Pumpkin Seeds) on each toast
Drizzle high quality Olive Oil
Grind salt and pepper over toasts and you are ready to enjoy!!!
