A few years ago if you googled “Avocado Toast” your search results would yield only a few recipes – mostly including a simple mashed avocado spread on toast. Nothing fancy. Well, times have changed. Recipes for Avocado Toast have gone mainstream. Today if you google “Avocado Toast” a plethora of fancy avocado recipes would appear from those topped with seeds to goat cheese and avocado.
Todays recipe is a twist on the current Avocado Toast trend. I first introduced you to Cloud Bread through a Cloud Bread Pizza recipe a few weeks ago. The recipe must have been a hit because it has gotten more views than any other recipes I have posted in the past year. Like a lot more views – we are talking 10x the normal views!
In case you missed the previous post with Cloud Bread, it is a grain free and low carbohydrate bread made with eggs, cream of tartar, and cream cheese. It gets its name “Cloud Bread” because it is light and fluffy like a cloud. In most cases it can replace traditional bread (i.e. eaten alone, sandwiches, pizzas). If you prep meals in advance for the week, Cloud Bread would be a great food to add to the food prep menu. The slices of the bread I used to create this recipe had been in the refrigerator for about 3-4 days.
Now the key to the avocado spread that tops the Cloud Bread is to not mash all of the avocado and leave some chunks. I used one avocado for two slices of bread. I split the avocado in half and mashed up the insides of one of the halves with the back of my fork until super smooth. For the other half, I cut the avocado half up into small 1 cm cubes. Unfortunately, I was out of fresh cilantro, but I would really recommend using the fresh option.
I enjoyed this recipe as a refreshing afternoon snack. I didn’t actually toast the avocado bread, but I am sure you could. Just note that the bread becomes a bit more crumbly when heated.
And I will leave you with a picture of my work space tonight….
Because sometimes you need to just sit outside and enjoy the summertime temps, crickets chirping, and candles burning.
- 3 eggs, separated
- 3 Tablespoons cream cheese (softened)
- ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1 Tablespoon honey or 2-3 drops liquid stevia (optional)
- Pinch of salt
- 4-5 Avocados, ripe
- 2-4 tablespoons chopped cilantro, fresh or dried
- splash of lemon juice
Note: You can also make the cloud bread in advance and refrigerate for up to 3-5 days and make the avocado spread in smaller quantities for a single serving option. Each slice of cloud bread needs about 1/2 avocado.
