10 Twists on Toast (That Don't Involve Avocado)
Almond Butter and Raspberry Chia Jam Toast
If you thought you were past the peanut butter and jelly stage, think again! This grown-up PB&J from Oh She Glows is a delicious combo of crunchy almond butter, raspberry chia seed jam, and flaked coconut. Yum.
Protein-packed homemade yogurt cheese (or just good ‘ol Greek yogurt if you’re in a hurry!) topped with crunchy radishes and fresh chives makes for a delicious breakfast or lunch toast. A Couple Cooks recommends using pumpernickel bread for added flavor, and seasoning with sea salt and ground black pepper.
Seedy Hummus Toast
This springy recipe from Spoon Fork Bacon combines the fresh, warm weather flavors of smoked trout, sweet corn, and tarragon. Perfect as a party appetizer or a solo lunch at home, a squeeze of lemon juice plus a dusting of micro greens adds a zesty finishing touch to this filling toast.
Goat Cheese, Egg, Peas, and Dill Toast
This simple egg-on-toast recipe from Cookie + Kate is fresh and perfect for spring. Use hearty whole grain bread as your base, and top with fresh herbs of your choosing. You prepare the eggs however you like ‘em—the recipe will still turn out delicious.
Butternut Squash, Arugula, and Garlic Goat Cheese Toast
This toast from Blogging Over Thyme topped with sweet butternut squash, spicy arugula, and roasted garlic goat cheese sounds too good to be true, but it’s surprisingly simple to make for a quick meal or workday lunch. It sure beats the boring turkey sandwich routine! (Okay, not all sandwiches are boring. Try 10 Filling Vegetarian Sandwiches for fresh ideas.)
Olive Oil Tuna Toast
Tuna on toast has been done before, but the potato chip topping on this recipe from Joy the Baker takes it to a new taste level. Perfect for a quick lunch at home or picnic snack, prepare the tuna with olive oil (no mayo!) for a heart-healthy meal.
Peanut Butter Crunch Toast
Peanut butter, honey, and banana is another classic combination, but the addition of a small handful of granola (concocted by blogger Well Plated) adds a whole other textural layer. Enjoy this as a post-workout snack, but we won’t judge if it’s your breakfast (or lunch) too! (If you prefer your granola in bar form, try 10 Easy Recipes for Homemade Granola Bars.)
Apple Honey Walnut Toast
This sweet recipe from Hello Natural calls for homemade walnut butter, but you can easily replace that with your favorite store-bought version (almond will suffice in a pinch!). Top with apples, chopped walnuts, and a drizzle of honey for added sweetness.
