Fancy Avocado Toast Recipe

Difficulty Easy 2 comments


I have no shame about being an avocado toast lover. What’s wrong with loving a healthy fat on a carb? Absolutely nothing. Avocado toast is so versatile – you can add as many or as little toppings as you’d like. You can have it vegan or add eggs to it – whatever floats your boat! See below for my fancy avocado toast recipe.

If you try one of my recipes, I would love if you could tag it on Instagram or FB @chivegfood! Would also love if you could rate and review my recipes as well after trying them!

Prep time


Cooking time




  • Avocado Spread
  • 2 avocados

  • 1 lime

  • 3 dashes dashes hot sauce (Cholula is what I prefer)

  • 1/4 red onion (finely diced)

  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)

  • 1 serrano pepper (finely diced and optional)

  • salt/pepper to taste

  • Toast toppings
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)

  • 1/2 bag spinach

  • 2 tsp olive oil

  • 1/2 cup pickled onions (or shallots)

  • 20 cherry tomatoes (chopped in half)

  • 3 tbsp balsamic

  • 2 tbsp dill (chopped)

  • 4 slices bread

  • drizzle of extra virgin olive oil (optional)

  • drizzle of chili oil

  • poached eggs (optional)

  • 2 tsp white vinegar (for eggs)


  • Avocado Spread
  • Slice your avocado and put it in a medium sized bowl. Add the lime juice, hot sauce, onion, garlic, and Serrano pepper. Stir till blended together.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper. For more acid, use more lime juice. For more spice, add more hot sauce and peppers.
  • Optional Egg Preparation
  • In a medium pan on medium heat, heat up your olive oil and add the garlic, sauté for 1-2 minutes, then add the spinach and sauté till it wilts slightly for about 2-3 minutes. Season with salt/pepper. Put aside.
  • Prepare your optional poached egg and start toasting your bread. Crack your eggs into individual bowls. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan, pour white vinegar and when it starts boiling, bring to a simmer.
  • Take a large spoon with slits or holes and create a whirlpool, then quickly dump the egg in the middle of the whirlpool and cook for 90 seconds on medium-low heat. Then take the egg out with a large spoon, drain excess water and put aside on a plate. Repeat this step for each egg.
  • Avocado Toast Assembly
  • Once your bread is toasted, spread your avocado mixture on the bread, then the spinach-garlic mixture, then top with your optional egg, pickled onions (you can buy them pickled or pickle them yourself – see note), dill, tomatoes, and drizzle with balsamic and optional extra virgin olive oil or chili oil.
  • Your avocado toast is now ready!


  • Add more spice with hot sauce and red pepper flakes.
  • To quickly pickle your onions, at least a half hour before preparing your avocado toast, add half of a sliced onion to a bowl with 1/2 cup of white vinegar, 1 tbsp of white sugar, and 1 tbsp of tamari or soy sauce. Stir it all together. These will last you two weeks! This was inspired by http://www.nightmarketla.com/!
  • Feeling even fancier, add pesto to it! Put it directly on your bread and top with the avocado spread and other ingredients.
  • Top with Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel seasoning for an extra crunch!
