Everything spice avocado toast is a simple, healthy and delicious recipe for any meal! ~Sprouted grain or whole grain bread, avocado, “everything” spice, sunflower seeds~
To be honest, I’ve never been a bagel person. Well — let me rephrase that — for like five months when I was nine years old, I got on this intense bagel kick where I had a half of a cinnamon raisin bagel with butter, toasted, before bed every night. (Healthy, I know…). But that inexplicable phase in my life was really my one and only bagel kick. Otherwise, bagels have never really done much for me. HOWEVER. This spice… this “Everything” spice, so they call it, most well-known for being atop a bagel, is a super trendy spice mix. And I adore it on, essentially, everything. So I’m doin’ this, you guys — I’m hopping aboard the trend bandwagon. And I’m inviting you, and urging you to join, because I know deep within my food-loving soul that you won’t regret it.
In summer, I’m all about recipes where I don’t really have to cook (read: turn on an oven in my small apartment and tragically die of heat stroke). That’s why toast is a perfect recipe — it’s quick, healthy, tasty, and you can make it really filling by adding tons of toppings. Although avocado toast is probably my favorite way to eat toast (this may change if you ask me tomorrow), I also love to whip out this berry goat cheese toast when fresh berries are in season (aka right about now). Both are so simple!
What Is This “Everything” Spice?
It’s generally a mix of sesame seeds, sea salt, dried minced garlic, dried minced onion, and poppy seeds. You can buy it (I bought mine at Trader Joe’s), or you can make your own.* Some recommend toasting the sesame seeds, but I totally won’t judge if you’re lazy and don’t want to do that. I mean, I went the store-bought route after all.
Everything Spice Avocado Toast… Two Ways
You’ll notice that I didn’t capture the ‘two ways’ part in the photographs, but that’s because I tried it too long after I shot the photos (i.e. I couldn’t get the same lighting). I considered leaving the idea out… but ultimately I decided it was too good for me not to share it with you. Thus, two twists on your everything spice avocado toast:
- A Bit Savory. Finely slice fresh chives and sprinkle over the top.
- A Bit Sweet. Drizzle honey (raw and/or local if you have it!) over the top of the toast after adding the avocado, everything spice, and sunflower seeds. This is inspired by one of my favorite ways to eat an avocado: halved, sprinkled with sunflower seeds, and drizzled with honey.
Or, if you’re beside yourself with indecision, you can hold off on choosing between savory and sweet and just leave it at everything spice and sunflower seeds. You’re going to love it either way!
With that, I hope you love yet another avocado toast recipe (it never really gets old!), and a fun new spice to try.
I hope you enjoy your weekends! I’ll be busy visiting family and attending my lovely friend’s bridal shower, which means tons of driving, which means…. I really regret returning those Buddy Holly CDs to the library this week 😉
…Aaaand I took a bite because how I could I not???
