When you elevate it with the smoky complexity of grilling, it transcends into a whole new level of deliciousness. Here’s your ultimate guide to amazing grilled avocado toast.

Selecting the Right Ingredients for Grilled Avocado Toast

  1. Avocado: The star ingredient of this dish, your avocado, should be perfectly ripe – soft yet firm. An underripe avocado will be too hard and flavorless, while an overripe one can have an unappealing texture.
  2. Bread: Opt for a sturdy, hearty bread that can stand up to the grilling process without falling apart. Sourdough, whole grain, and artisanal loaves are excellent choices.
  3. Toppings: This is where you can get creative. Common toppings include cherry tomatoes, red onion, fresh herbs, poached eggs, feta cheese, and various seeds.
  4. Seasoning: Salt and pepper are essential, and don’t forget the citrus. A squeeze of fresh lime or lemon juice will enhance the avocado’s flavor.

Grilling Your Toast

  1. Preheat your grill on medium heat. Lightly brush both sides of your bread slices with olive oil. This will help prevent sticking and promote even browning.
  2. Grill the bread slices for about 1-2 minutes per side or until they are nicely toasted with grill marks. Keep a close eye on the bread to prevent burning.

Preparing the Avocado

  1. Cut the avocado in half lengthwise around the seed. Twist both halves in opposite directions and gently separate them.
  2. Remove the seed by tapping it with the blade of a knife and then twisting it out.
  3. Scoop out the avocado flesh with a spoon into a bowl. Mash it roughly with a fork. You want to keep some texture rather than creating a completely smooth paste.
  4. Season your mashed avocado with salt, pepper, and a generous squeeze of fresh lemon or lime juice.

Assembling Your Avocado Toast

  1. Spread the mashed avocado evenly over your grilled bread slices.
  2. Now it’s time to add your toppings. A simple tomato and red onion salad adds a refreshing tang. For a heartier version, try adding a poached egg. For a bit of a kick, you can add chili flakes or a drizzle of hot sauce.
  3. Finish off with a sprinkle of sea salt, a grinding of black pepper, and perhaps a drizzle of good-quality olive oil.
