Maple Drizzled Pistachio & Avocado Bagel Toast (Vegan)
Here’s me following a trend just for the heck of it again.
On a scale of one to ten how lame do you think that is? I mean, I don’t think of myself as being follower of the norm by any means, and way more often than not I stay as far from a fad as I can. However, I’ll admit that it’s a rarity, but sometimes a the bandwagon gang knows their stuff, and I’m pretty sure this is one of those times. Avocado toast people, it’s where it’s at!
I think the craze started because avo makes a way healthier alternative to just about anything that would usually make an appearance on your toast. As you all know it’s an incredible super food, plus there’s the fact that it’s completely scrumdidly-YUM-cious! It’s like nature’s version of I can’t believe it’s not butter. Of course, I’m wondering if including the other things in the party negate the whole healthy thing, but it’s all in the balance right? Yeah, let’s go with that. I have a strict no-skimping-on-snacktime policy.
This barely counts as a recipe unless you count the fact that I made the bagels myself, but it is Friday and I’m really loving the fact that this is majorly simple right now. Of course, I am going to have to recommend making the homemade bagels, but if you’re trying to enjoy your weekend and you’re just looking for the perfect snack to throw together, then I understand that too. If that’s the case then just make sure to use some really good store-bought bagels for the job (Although, I can’t remember ever meeting a bagel I didn’t like so that may be irrelevant advice). You could use a slice of your favorite bread instead if you’d prefer. A doughy slice of whole grain seed bread would be delish.
So I did go with the wave on this one but I wanted to give my avo toast something of its own twist and with March being right around the corner I was thinking the green on green from adding pistachios would be both gorgeous and yummy. This is definitely how to put the fun back in functional snacks.
Happy weekend yes!
