Joey’s Avocado Toast with Tahini & Black Sesame Seeds

IMG_8755

We spent the day poolside at my friend Joey’s in Woodstock. He made fantastic sunflower bread (his first loaf of bread ever) and then served this deliciousness to us! He cut the bread up into small pieces, appetizer size, and topped them with smashed avocado, tahini and black sesame seeds. Apparently black sesame seeds are really good for us!

One avocado can serve 1 to 2 people.

1 avocado
The juice of 1/2 lemon
Fresh tahini, room temperature (I love Soom tahini) *
Black sesame seeds
Sea salt, a pinch, to taste
Bread, your favorite

* The tahini should be very liquidy. If it isn’t you can always whisk it together with a little water and/or lemon juice.

Mash the avocado with the lemon juice. Spread on toast and drizzle with tahini. Top with a sprinkle of black sesame seeds and a pinch of sea salt. Enjoy!

Avocado Toast

We love avocados on toast. And apparently it is the new “in” thing. Whatever. We love it with a little cumin and red pepper flakes. The key is to use good bread. It really makes a difference.

1 avocado
1 tablespoon lemon juice
A few shakes of cumin
Sea salt
Red pepper flakes
2 toasts

Toast some really good bread.

Mash an avocado. Squeeze in some lime juice. Add a few shakes of cumin and sea salt. Mix together well. Taste and adjust. Spread on the toast and then sprinkle with red pepper flakes. Enjoy!
