Avocado toast is totally having a moment. And it's no surprise-what could be better than buttery, ripe avocado smashed onto hearty, crusty bread? Not only does it taste incredible, but the combo of healthy fats and fiber is also super satisfying no matter what time of day hunger strikes.

New York City's Cafe Gitane is said to have started the craze with their lemon juice, olive oil, and chili flake-topped seven-grain toast version (you've probably seen it on Instagram). But why stop there? We hunted down the most delicious, good-for-you twists on the web.

Hot and Spicy Avocado Toast

So simple. So spicy (if you desire). So good.

Healthy Indian spice adds some serious global flair.

Creamy, gooey burrata makes this sandwich extra special. Swap in fresh mozzarella or ricotta if you can't find it in your local market.

If you haven't already, introduce hummus to avocado, stat. The two hit it off perfectly.

Take your toast south of the border with cumin-dusted roasted tomatoes and a sprinkling of pepitas.

Bright and tropical may just be the perfect way to start your day.
