How does Darth Vader like his toast?

Oh hello!

Today’s post includes 2 of my all-time favorite things. Here’s the first…get ready to get your groan on! It’s time for some PUN.

I Can't Believe It's Not Midi-chlorians!

Man I crack myself up. And admit it, you’re smiling too.

Now for the recipe. “Is it toast?” you ask.Well, of course! But not just any toast…it’s Avocado Toast! It’s simple. It’s delicious. You might well be saying, “but Miss Molly…this is hardly groundbreaking!” You’re right, dear reader, and thank you for flattering me. But, often the simple things are overlooked and sometimes that simplicity is all you need in the morning.

I love avocado toast for breakfast, or lunch, or a post-workout snack. It has everything. It’s creamy,  a tad sweet, a smidge acidic,  spicy, and crunchy. It’s healthy, yet feels indulgent. And who doesn’t love avocados?! Especially now that they’re in season. Mmmmmmm. So good. I could eat them with a spoon.

Without further ado…I give you–Avocado Toast!

This recipe serves 1, and the nutrition info reflects that. Of course, I just used a regular Thomas’ English Muffin (sandwich size). But, if you use something healthier, that will change the info. This recipe also works with any other kind of bread, which goes without saying. Of course, the method remains the same. :) Happy toasting.

Ingredients:

1/2 ripe avocado (should be a bit squishy to the touch)
1 English muffin1 Roma tomato
2-2 1/2 tsp chia seeds
1-2 tsp Sriracha
1 lemon wedge (optional)

Method:

1. Ingredients assemble! Or, gather ingredients.
2. Separate English muffin halves. Place in the toaster, and toast to desired done-ness. I like mine crispy and crunchy, but not too far on the dark side.
3. While the muffin is toasting, cut the avocado in half. Run a knife down the half without the pit, essentially making quarters. Slice up the tomato, about 3 little slices per side of bread.
4. Once toasty perfection has been reached, remove the toast from the toaster and place on a plate. Spread one quarter of the avocado on each side of your toast. Spread it evenly over the toast. Sprinkle with lemon juice. (You can also sprinkle the unused half of avocado with lemon juice, cover and place it in the fridge. The lemon juice will keep it from turning brown.)
5. Sprinkle the chia seeds evenly over each side of the toast.
6. Arrange tomato slices on top of the chia seeds.
7. Drizzle Sriracha on top of the toast.
8. Munch. Crunch. Savor.
