Avocado toast is a staple in my diet, but I got tired of my plain old Sriracha topping. So I started experimenting with veggies. After trying many different combinations, I learned that sauteed mushrooms and chickpeas are at the top of my favorites list. The salty combination along with the fresh avocado and crunchy toast is something I actually crave, and I'm sure you will too after trying this!


Ingredients:

  • 2 medium avocados

  • 1 container (8 oz) of baby bella mushrooms

  • 1/2 can of chickpeas, rinsed

  • 2 garlic cloves

  • 1 tbsp olive or grapeseed oil

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

  • 1/4 tsp oregano

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

  • Salt (to taste)

  • Nutritional yeast (optional)

  • 4 slices of fresh bread of your choice, toasted

Directions:

  • Heat a frying pan on medium and add the oil.

  • Wash and chop your mushrooms, then dice the garlic.

  • Add the mushrooms to the frying pan and mix so they get coated in the oil. Cook for a few minutes until they start to soften. ○ You can also use water instead of oil. Just keep adding a splash at a time if the mushrooms are sticking to the pan.

  • Add in the garlic, chickpeas, and spices.

  • Cook until the mushrooms and chickpeas are softened.

  • Meanwhile, toast your bread and slide your avocado.

  • Mash 1/2 of an avocado on each piece of toast.

  • Sprinkle with a little nutritional yeast (optional).

  • Top with mushrooms & chickpeas.

  • Sprinkle with a little bit more salt, oregano, or any other herbs you'd like (optional).

  • Enjoy!

Tips and Tricks:

  • This is a fantastic recipe as it is, but some other fun toppings to try are: ○ Sauteed cherry tomatoes, arugula, red onion, truffle oil, balsamic vinegar, pumpkin seeds.
