Avocado Toast With Parmigiano Reggiano

Share to...

The best avocado toast starts with a premium avocado that is perfectly ripened and tender to touch.

We’ve been avocado fans since we first tried them as part of a keto diet.

Last week my sister-in-law handed me a bag of four large organic avocados, so I made two recipes.

I decided on a sugar-free avocado chocolate pudding and avocado toast on Carbonaut bread.

Carbonaut bread is a keto bread that we buy at Costco Canada for a double loaf for $9.99.

If you are not eating a low-carb or keto diet, all you need is your favourite bread for toast.

Let me show you how to make avocado toast with freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano grated on top.

Health Benefits of an Avocado

Here are some of the most abundant nutrients in a single 3.5-ounce (100-gram) avocado serving:

  • Vitamin K: 26% of the daily value (DV)
  • Folate: 20% of the DV
  • Vitamin C: 17% of the DV
  • Vitamin B5: 14% of the DV
  • Vitamin B6: 13% of the DV
  • Vitamin E: 10% of the DV
  • It also contains small amounts of magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, zinc, phosphorous and vitamins A, B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin) and B3 (niacin).

Avocados come with 160 calories, 2 grams of protein and 15 grams of healthy fats.

Although it contains 9 grams of carbs, 7 are fibre, so there are only 2 “net” carbs, making this a low-carb-friendly plant food.- Source Proven benefits of Avocado.

Buying Avocados

Whether we shop at Zehrs, one of Canada’s most expensive grocery stores or Food Basics, avocado prices are dear.

To purchase one large organic avocado is priced between $1.99- $2.99, which isn’t too bad.

If you’re making this recipe for one person, all you need is one avocado.

Ideally, you won’t need to buy a bag of avocados unless you plan to eat them within the week.

How To Store An Avocado

Although keeping avocados on the counter will ripen them quickly, we store them in the refrigerator.

The cold in the vegetable crisper slows the ripening process of the avocado.

I’m not an avocado scientist, but that’s what we’ve noticed over the years of eating them.

We take one or two out at a time if we plan to eat them the same day or the next.

Purchasing Avocados In Bulk

You’ll also notice that almost all grocery stores sell four or five green or black avocados in a mesh bag.

The price will always be lower when you buy avocados in bulk.

Let me tell you a little secret about buying avocados.

Almost always, especially when an avocado is in the growing season, we find half-priced avocado.

Although the price is fantastic if you buy them you need to eat them within a day or two.

It’s still a savings and a great way to make a leisurely keto breakfast or snack recipe.

Delicious Avocado Toast Variations

The recipe I make with a ripe avocado is relatively easy and tastes delicious.

There is no best bread for avocado toast that I would suggest as variations are equally as delicious.

Optional bread might include flatbread, pita bread, crumpets, scones or English muffins.

If you’ve tried the 3 ingredient Protein bread recipe you’ll love it toasted with the avocado mixture.

Always check the reduced bread rack or have a walk around the bread aisle looking for deals.

Try the avocado mixture in a lettuce boat which contains 4 romaine or iceberg lettuce leaves.

  • Avocado Toast with a soft-boiled egg or scrambled egg
  • Plain Smashed Avocado on Toast
  • Avocado Toast with mozzarella melted under the broiler
  • Tuna and Avocado Toast
  • Avocado Toast with Tomato and Bacon
  • Chunky Avocado Toast With Mayo
  • Smooth Avocado Toast Spread (use the hand blender) Every home needs a hand blender.
  • Avocado and Feta Toast
  • Fried Egg on Avocado Toast
  • Goat Cheese Avocado Toast is unique, and you can find a double-pack at Costco for a great price.
  • Sardines and Avocado on Toast
  • There are many other ways of eating avocado on toast, and I’d love to read about your creation.

  1. Mr. Bb… I have been buying the 2nd grade avocados at superstore mesh bagged up to 10 avocados for 6.00. Yes some of the skins are marred but all have been good inside. I keep them in a jar of water in the fridge until it’s time to remove and ripen on the counter 2 or 3 at a time. Avocados keep a long time this way without ripening.
    Have you tried one mixed with mango salsa on toast. It’s yummy too. Try a second for savings. They are the same inside. Ann lee s

    1. Hi Ann,
      I love the idea of adding mango salsa on toast with avocado. The sweet and savoury would be perfect. Also, thanks for the tip for keeping the avocado in the refrigerator in water. We just put them inside the fruit crisper and it works too. I’ll try your version as well. I enjoy reading tricks from other readers. Thanks for sharing today Ann lee.
