Cook Time icon 25 min

This recipe provides a delightful twist to the classic avocado toast, incorporating the unique flavours and textures of chia seeds, fried mini roma tomatoes, coriander, and olive oil.

What do I need?

  • 2 slices of sourdough bread
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 cup mini roma tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup fresh coriander leaves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How do I make it?

  1. Start by slicing the avocado in half and removing the pit. Scoop the flesh into a bowl and mash it with a fork until smooth. Season the mashed avocado with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Toast the whole-grain bread slices to your desired level of crispiness.
  3. In a skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the halved mini roma tomatoes to the skillet and sauté for 3-4 minutes until they start to soften and release their juices. Continue cooking until the tomatoes are slightly caramelised and have a golden colour.
  4. Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. Spread the mashed avocado evenly over the toasted bread slices.
  6. Sprinkle chia seeds over the mashed avocado. Chia seeds will add a nutty texture.
  7. Arrange the fried mini roma tomatoes on top of the chia seeds.
  8. Sprinkle the chopped fresh coriander leaves over the toast. Coriander will add a burst of freshness and a hint of citrus.
  9. Finish the dish by drizzling the remaining tablespoon of olive oil over the top. This not only enhances the flavour but also adds a smooth richness to the dish.
  10. Serve immediately. Enjoy the combination of creamy avocado, crunchy chia seeds, savoury tomatoes, and aromatic coriander!
