Avocado Asparagus Toast

This simple spring toast is great as an appetizer, snack, or meal!

Ingredients
  

  • teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 asparagus spears cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 avocado
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh chives
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup peas
  • 2 slices whole wheat bread toasted (or gluten-free bread)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pistachios
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese

Instructions
 

  • In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the asparagus and cook until tender, but still crisp, about 4-5 minutes. Make sure you stir the asparagus occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Cut the avocado in half lengthwise. Remove the pit from the avocado and discard. Remove the avocado from the skin and place the avocado flesh into a small bowl. Add the lemon juice, chives, salt, and pepper. Mash with a fork until smooth and creamy.
  • Spread mashed avocado on toasted bread slices. Add the asparagus, peas, pistachios, and feta cheese. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Serve immediately.
