Sample Recipe: Strawberry-Avocado Toast with Balsamic Glaze
Serves 4 | Prep Time: 5 minutes
When it comes to speedy breakfasts, toast is a mainstay. But this recipe isn’t just for any old toast—this is toast taken to another level. The avocado adds creaminess, the sliced strawberry brings a fresh fruitiness, and the balsamic glaze rounds out the flavors with a hint of acidity and sweetness.
Mash one-quarter of the avocado on a slice of toast. Layer one-quarter of the strawberry slices over the avocado, and finish with a drizzle of balsamic glaze. Repeat with the remaining ingredients, and serve.
If you can’t buy balsamic glaze, make your own! Put balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan and cook, uncovered, over low heat for roughly 45 minutes, or until it’s reduced to roughly one-quarter of the original amount of liquid.
1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and quartered
4 whole-wheat bread slices, toasted
4 ripe strawberries, cut into ¼ inch slices
1 tablespoon balsamic glaze or reduction
