Avocado Asparagus Toast
Avocado Asparagus Toast-avocado toast with asparagus, peas, pistachios, and feta cheese. This simple spring toast is great as an appetizer, snack, or meal!
I bought our first bundle of asparagus of the season last week and I am hooked. I roasted asparagus for dinner and it was so good I went back to the store and bought a few more bundles. Asparagus has been on our menu almost every single day. I can’t get enough. I have been adding it to anything and everything. I made this Avocado Asparagus Toast for lunch and I know I will be lunching on it all spring long. It is my new favorite thing.
Avocado toast is my staple. I love the classic, but I am not afraid to mix things up. This Avocado Asparagus Toast is the perfect spring avocado toast. It has all of my favorite spring things!
I add a little fresh lemon juice and chopped chives to the avocado to freshen things up. I spread the mashed avocado onto whole wheat toast and then go crazy with spring toppings. I add asparagus, peas, chopped pistachios, and crumbled feta cheese. I finish things off with a sprinkle of sea salt and black pepper.
Look at that pretty toast! It screams spring and I LOVE the bright green color. Green is my favorite color so this toast makes me extra happy. Plus, it is healthy and delicious! I have been eating it for lunch, but it would also be good for breakfast, dinner, as a snack, or served as an appetizer! And it would be really good on St. Patrick’s Day! It is the perfect way to GO GREEN!
Put a little spring in your avocado toast and make Avocado Asparagus Toast! I am going to be eating this one all spring long!
