I like my sweet and I like my savory but I LOVE when sweet and savory fall in love and make fantastical sweet salty babies.
Like chocolate covered potato chips. And watermelon with feta. And salted almond dark chocolate. And bacon wrapped dates stuffed with goat cheese minus the bacon perhaps.
Like dis tooooast.
Tis the year of the toast. Everyone’s doing it. It’s the coolest thing since sliced bread. It is sliced bread.
This recipe is so easy that I almost felt stupid posting it. But because it’s the most epic of epic and simple of simple flavor combos, I felt most thoroughly obliged to take pretty pictures of it and tell you exactly what’s in it (as if you couldn’t make it on your own by simply looking at the one I instagrammed just the other day).
If I didn’t instagram the toast, did it actually happen?
Let’s talk about how complex this recipe that actually isn’t a recipe is. Toast bread. Mash avo. Slice strawbs. Top with coconut and a drizzle of maple. EAT. Eat again.
Eat for all the meals.
So listen. I’m super duper excited because the lovely folks at RestaurantWare (a leading manufacturer and online distributor of discount, wholesale restaurant supplies) recently sent me some of their eco-friendly tableware goodies, many of which were oh so perfect for toast. I especially liked the bamboo plates, bamboo silverware, and the paper straws.
Who doesn’t die for a good paper straw? The stripes are everything. And the dots. THE POLKA DOTZZZ! Cue the monkey-with-his-hands-on-his-head-emoji.
Did you know that paper and plastic aren’t your only disposable options for cookout season? I kid you not! The eco-friendly options I’m currently digging are these bamboo round plates (I’m thinking big salads), these bamboo small square plates (hello toast), these boats (perfect for fruit salad), this cutlery, and these amazing paper straws (smoothie heaven).
I love that the tableware is not only made with sustainable bamboo, but that it’s all actually durable and sturdy enough to use in outdoor and indoor gatherings. Who would’ve thought that saving the environment could be so gosh darn fashionable?
Bloggers love cute straws for pictures, but regular people can enjoy dainty straws, too. Why do smoothies taste so much better when drinking them with a lovely straw?
If you want some bamboo goodness of your own, enter the code “Hummusapien” at checkout for 10% off your purchase! Oh yes. We went there.
In all honesty, I really didn’t think avocado toast could get any better. Then I topped it with strawbs and served it on a teensy bamboo plate and like WOAH. This is next level stuff.
Go ahead and elevate your toast. Go ahead and drink your almond milk out of a black and gold polka dot straw.
Life’s too short not to.
- Toast bread.
- Top with mashed avocado, sliced strawberries, coconut, and a drizzle of maple syrup. A dash of salt doesn't hurt either!
