For breakfast out in a big city, Le Pain Quotidien is an oasis. Even though I eat simply for breakfast, I do love the ritual of a hot something to sip, a bite to eat and stealing a pleasurable moment - ideally outside - before the day takes off. These minutes set the tone for the whole day; a hurried breakfast, a hurried day. Ingredients in the SimplyCooking® pantry create fine breakfast foods very simply, such as this avocado toast. The version served at Le Pain Quotdien is amazing and is the inspiration for this SimplyCooking® recipe. If you would like the recipe for the avocado toast served at the worldwide boulangerie, Le Pain Quotidien, you can click here. They craft their own sea salt mix and generously provide the recipe. But the simplified version of avocado toast here is equally good and perfect for quotidian kitchens and everyday life at home.
2 pieces sprouted grain toast
pinch salt, Celtic sea salt preferable
1/4 tsp. coconut oil, or olive oil
As the bread toasts, mash one avocado in a small bowl. Add a pinch of cumin, Celtic sea salt and 1/4 tsp., or so, of coconut oil. Spread over warm toast. Slice the second avocado in thin slices and arrange over the mashed layer. Serve with a squeeze of lemon. A nasturtium from the garden or piece of shaved carrot elevates the feel of this recipe.
