Ingredients needed to make this kid-friendly avocado toast
So simple, yet so good for you! I really love this recipe for its deliciousness of course, as well as its simplicity.
How to make kid-friendly avocado toast
- Cut the bread into fun shapes using cookie cutters. To cut: Place your favorite cookie cutter into the center of the bread, press down, and jiggle it a little. Pull the extra pieces of bread away from the cookie-cutter and place the shaped bread onto a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray or lined with parchment paper. Continue until you have cut all of your bread.
2. Toast the bread in a 425 degree F oven for a few minutes until golden brown.
3. Place the avocado into a small mixing bowl, sprinkle it with lime juice, salt and pepper.
4. Mash it up using a fork to desired consistency.
5. Spread each piece of toast with some of the mashed avocado and top with desired toppings.
Recipe Tips Variations
- Mix up the toppings – use any toppings you and your kids like such as sliced strawberries, peaches, sliced cherry tomatoes, hemp seeds, or herbs like basil or cilantro.
- Add some protein – add a fried egg or these roasted crispy chickpeas
- Use roasted sweet potato in place of the bread – Just slice the sweet potato into round shapes, brush with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and bake for 15-17 minutes at 425 degrees F. So delicious!
- If you have left-over mashed avocado, make sure you sprinkle it with lime juice, salt, and pepper. Then place it into an airtight container, place some plastic wrap over the top to cover the avocado, place the lid on, and store it in the fridge for up to 2 days.
- How to store whole avocados. There are a few ways you can store avocados – Unripe avocados should be stored on the counter until they are beginning to ripen (i.e get softer). Ripe Avocados should be stored in the refrigerator to slow down their ripening and last longer.
- Storing avocados after you slice them open. First, if you know you are only going to use half of an avocado, then you want to save the half that has the seed in it since it will last longer. Then wrap it up tightly with plastic wrap so there are no air pockets. Store it in the fridge cut-side down so no air or light can get to it(air and light are what turn it brown). It should last a few days and stay nice and green. You can also brush it with a little lime or lemon juice then wrap it up tightly with plastic wrap. Trus me! I do this all the time and am amazed every time when it is still bright green and beautiful after a few days.
