  • 4 slices of your favorite bread (sourdough, whole grain, etc.)
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Salt, to taste

1. Prepare the Avocado Mixture:

  • Halve the avocados, remove the pits, and scoop the flesh into a bowl.
  • Add the lemon juice, salt, and pepper to the avocados. Mash the ingredients together with a fork until you reach your desired consistency—smooth for a creamy spread or chunky for more texture.

2. Toast the Bread:

  • Toast the slices of bread to your preference, whether you like them lightly toasted or crispy.

3. Assemble the Avocado Toast:

  • Spread a generous amount of the avocado mixture onto each slice of toasted bread.
  • Arrange the tomato and radish slices over the avocado.
  • If using, sprinkle some plant-based cheese on top for added flavor and richness.

4. Add Finishing Touches:

  • Drizzle olive oil lightly over each assembled toast.
  • For a sweet and tangy contrast, drizzle some balsamic glaze over the top.
  • Garnish with fresh basil leaves for a burst of freshness and color.
  • Season with a bit more salt and pepper, to taste, and add a sprinkle of red pepper flakes if desired.
