Avocado-Smashed Pea Toast

If you follow food on Facebook or Instagram, you have likely been visually assaulted by avocado toast.  For me, it quickly became one of the most annoying food trends.  Mashed avocado on toast: what's the big deal?  

That said, I finally gave it a try.  As much as it pains me to admit it, avocado toast makes for a pretty spectacular breakfast.  It feels almost silly to give a recipe for it: after all, you're just spreading mashed avocado on toast.  

My twist on avocado toast is to add in some peas and a poached egg.  The peas bring in some extra flavor while still keeping the green.   Plus, you get some extra veggies.  The poached egg adds some protein.  And, a runny egg and toast?  Now, that's a win-win.   

Avocado-Smashed Pea Spread
Yields 1 serving

1/4 cup peas, defrosted
1/2 avocado
1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Red pepper flakes, to taste

If you prefer a smooth texture, in a small bowl, use a hand immersion blender to puree the avocado and pees, add olive oil and seasonings, and stir.   Alternatively, mash ingredients together in a small bowl.  Spread on toast, and top with a poached egg!

  1. I don't know what the big deal all of the sudden is either. My mother was taught how to make it by my grandmother a million years ago and I was brought up on it. I wrote my own blog about it several years ago, because, well, it is that good. I have to say that I love it and your recipe gives me an excuse to try it with a new twist. This looks delicious.

    1. I can't believe how much restaurants are charging for it, too!

  2. It's everywhere! Your version switches it up and makes it much more exciting and filling though.
