Lemon Chili Avocado Toast

What do you do when it's raining Avocados?  Make my Lemon Chili Avocado Toast of course!  With only 4 ingredients you'll have a jump start to your day.


Lemon Chili Avocado Toast

It's avocado season in California and we have some of the best avocados anywhere with a buttery smooth and creamy texture.  They can be used in so many dishes from salads, to toppings for soup, tacos, in salsas, and for breakfast on toast.  

My Lemon Chili Avocado Toast is full of flavor and you only need 4 ingredients.  The lemon and chili bring a flavor pop to the dish and compliment the avocado.  The best eye opening dish that's simple to make.  I used toasted sourdough as my base but choose your favorite bread.

Let's do breakfast!

What Ingredients do I need?

  • Sourdough bread
  • Avocados - Hass are a good choice
  • lemon
  • chili flakes
  • Pantry Staples:  salt & pepper

Substitutions and Variations

  • Bread - choose your favorite bread.  Multi-grain, wheat or Italian country are all good choices
  • Adjust the heat - use just a pinch of chili flakes for mild heat or add more if you like it hot


Kitchen Tips and Notes

  • Avocados - there are several varieties of avocado and any of them will work.  I tend to prefer Hass which are small and dark with bumpy skins.  They have a little more buttery fat and aren't watery.
  • Best eaten right away - avocados tend to brown with exposure to air so eating all the the avocado mixture right away is suggested.  The lemon will deter the browning but will not last as leftovers in the refrigerator.
  • Toast your bread well so it hold up to the avocado mixture and doesn't get soggy.  Use a toaster, toaster oven, or toast/broil in the oven.

Lemon Chili Avocado Toast

serves 2

1 ripe avocado, halved and pitted
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 sliced of sourdough bread
1/2 teaspoon dried chili flakes

Cut the avocado lengthwise around the pit.  Twist the top half off the bottom.  Take a chef's knife and chop the pit so the blade sticks into it.  Twist the blade to remove the pit.  Scoop out the flesh in to a bowl.  Add the lemon juice, salt and pepper.  Mash with a fork and combine.

Toast bread then spread each slice with avocado mixture.  Serve.
