Avocado Toast with Chives


Avocados make a great cream cheese substitute, because they bring a smooth consistency in addition to a healthy dose of fiber, potassium and vitamin B. Give your breakfast a boost by spreading avocado on toast then topping it with sautéed tomatoes and onions as well as fresh chives garnished with chive blossoms.  This recipe comes to us from Melissa of Foodista.com.

Serves 2

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 onion, sliced
  • 15 grape tomatoes, halved
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 2 slices bread
  • 2 springs chives, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chive blossoms*

*optional. Chives are easily homegrown and produce beautiful edible blossoms, so try picking some up at your local farmer’s market or growing them in your own backyard.

Place the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Combine the onions and tomatoes in the skillet and sauté for 5-8 minutes, or until soft. Season with salt and pepper to taste and set aside.

Toast the bread to preference.

Evenly smear avocado onto each slice of toast. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

Top the avocado evenly with the sautéed onion tomato mixture.

Garnish the toast with fresh chives and their blossoms if using.
