Fresh, flavorful, and protein-rich, this White Bean Avocado Toast is the perfect light meal or snack to power your day. It comes together in minutes and all you'll need is a mixing bowl and fork.
I'm definitely a creature of habit, especially on busy mornings and toast is usually my go-to quick meal along with a cup of coffee. Some days I'll just add some vegan cream cheese and chia seed jam or go all out with this White Bean Avocado Toast.
I like adding the white beans because it adds a nice dose of protein and creates a creamier texture than just plain mashed avocado. It's also super satisfying and keeps me going.
Plus, it takes less than 10 minutes to make and requires simple ingredients. It's so easy to customize too so you can have different variations all the time.
- Cannellini Beans - you can also use great northern beans or navy beans.
- Avocado - choose a large avocado that is just ripened.
- Basil - any fresh herbs will work here such as cilantro, parsley, chives, or dill.
- Lemon Juice - lime juice is lovely too.
- Spinach - feel free to use any of your favorite greens. I also like to use arugula, kale, or sprouts.
- Tomato - this works with roasted peppers too. So good!
- Red Chili Flakes - adds a little kick but you can omit it if preferred.
- Granulated Garlic - you can also use granulated onion or any of your favorite spices.
- Bread - choose a sturdy bread that will hold up well with the mixture on top. My no-knead artisan bread is a great choice.
