Vegan Avocado Toast

Vegan Avocado Toast PinThis Vegan Avocado Toast recipe is fast, simple, savory and satisfying! I never had avocado toast before making this, but everyone seems to love it, and now I know why!

Some people thinly slice their avocado and lay the slices on their toast topped with seasonings, but I smashed it up and mixed in some lime juice and seasonings to give it more flavor. The guacamole texture makes it easier to spread on your toast, too. And I topped it with a little red pepper flakes to give it some spice!

If you’re an avocado lover, you’re no doubt familiar with the avocado’s temperamentality. It can go from green to overripe in about 5 minutes. And once you cut it open, it turns dark quickly. However, you can preserve it longer by submerging the unused portion in water. We seal ours in a container and put it in the fridge.

The best way to peel an avocado is to use the knick and peel method. Cut the avocado in half and remove the seed. Then cut the halves in half again making 4 quarters. At the small, pointy end of the avocado, knick the peel and pull it off. This ensures that you get all the dark green goodness closest to the skin. That’s where most of the critical phytonutrients live.

We ate ours with a cup of fruit: bananas, strawberries and blueberries. What an amazing breakfast!

Vegan BLT with Avocado

Vegan BLT PinThis Vegan BLT with Avocado means you can still enjoy your bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich on a hot summer day even after you switch to a plant-based way of eating. This sandwich goes great with Vegan French Fries.

BLT’s were always a summer mainstay in the Stonestreet household. My grandpa lived about a mile from us on the other end of Gardner Lake in Kansas and he had a huge garden with tons of tomato plants. We used to go visit and never left without a bunch of fresh veggies and amazing tomatoes that were the perfect size and taste for a delicious BLT.

Happily, I can still enjoy a tasty BLT (sans cruelty) thanks to some Tofu Bacon. If you put this stuff on a sandwich and blindfold a meat eater, they wouldn’t know it’s not real bacon.

We cooked ours without oil because we try to eat oil-free as much as possible, but if you fry it up in a skillet with a little vegetable oil, you’ll be able to fool anyone into thinking it’s real bacon.

Remember to prepare your Vegan Cashew Cream ahead of time as well. Or you can use Vegan Mayo if you prefer that and don’t care about your oil consumption.

Tofu Breakfast Sandwich w/ Avocado

Tofu Breakfast Sandwich PinYou can eat this delicious, high protein and nutrient rich Tofu Breakfast Sandwich naked (without the bread), as an open-face sandwich or as a full sandwich. This is a great, high energy way to start your day. Plus, it makes leftovers that you can quickly heat up for your busy morning schedule.

We originally made this recipe with an english muffin, but it’s hard to find those without oil, milk and/or eggs so we switched it to a whole grain bread sandwich. Whole grains are healthier anyway.

The bread in our pictures is a whole wheat bread with chia seeds. We get it from a local baker here in Cuenca, Ecuador called ArteSana Panadería y Pastelería. They aren’t a vegan baker, but they do make delicious vegan bread.

We like to eat this as a breakfast sandwich, but you can eat it for lunch or dinner, too. We used to put vegan butter on our sandwiches until we realized how much oil and how many calories vegan butter has. Now we either buy really high quality bread that doesn’t need anything added to it, or we use a nut butter, jam or hummus, depending on what we’re eating. Some of our Vegan Hummus or White Bean Dip or Spread would go great on this tofu breakfast sandwich.

Tofu Breakfast Sandwich

This breakfast meal has 16 grams of protein, 8 grams of fiber, 19% RDA Iron, 50% Vitamin C and 14% Calcium. Pair it with a bowl of fresh or frozen fruit and this makes one filling breakfast. I can’t think of a better way to start your day than with a nutrient dense tofu breakfast sandwich like this.

If you’re on a weight loss plan, you can skip the avocado to reduce the fat content and calories.
