Whip up this treat in only 5 minutes! My easy vegan avocado toast recipe is perfect for breakfast (or really, any time of day.) Customize it to your liking!

There’s a reason avocado toast is so popular — it’s yummy, simple, and extremely versatile. The crispy bread paired with creamy avocado is divine. 

You can add anything you like on your avocado toast, but I chose cherry tomatoes, sprouts, and a mix of balsamic glaze and olive oil.

I’ll have additional topping ideas below for you to try! If you’re looking for something sweet next time, try out my peanut butter toast!

FAQs

Can I store avocado toast?

I don’t recommend it! The bread can easily soak in the moisture from the avocado. And there’s nothing worse than soggy toast! Eat your avocado toast as soon as possible after it’s been prepared. 

How do I pick a ripe avocado?

Good question! Some stores label the avocado ripeness and you can choose from a selection. Alternatively, you can press down on the avocado with your fingers (firm yet gentle) to determine ripeness. If it’s soft, not mushy, it’s probably ripe. If it doesn’t give way to pressure, it’s not ripe yet. 

Do I have to mash the avocado in a bowl? Can’t I mash on the toast directly?

You can do whatever you like! I prefer mashing in a bowl so I don’t put too much pressure on the toast (and risk crumbling it). A bowl is helpful because you can mix in seasonings too.
