Like most vegetarians (and, well, people) my love for avocados is strong, and you can find me eating some variation of avocado toast pretty much every weekend. Here’s my late summer version of the wildly popular dish– because now is the time to stuff your face with tomatoes, cucumber, and basil in all their pre-fall glory.
2 slices of bread of choice, toasted
1/2 ripe hass avocado
1-2 Tb hemp seeds
salt and pepper
a few basil leaves, torn
optional: drizzle of balsamic vinegar OR fresh lemon juice OR hot sauce OR sliced olives
Mash avocado on toast, sprinkle with salt, then add everything else. Season with a bit more salt and some pepper, or as desired.
