Greetings from Vancouver!

I hope you’re all having a fantastic start to your weekend. Since I’m out of town and enjoying some much needed time with my little family, I asked my friend Jessica, from Styled Nutrition to take over this weeks food friday post.  It’s trendy, nutritious and delicious. Enjoy~~*

Oh fancy toast, you so trendy right now! It seems to be popping up in restaurants and cafés everywhere. But really, who doesn’t love avocado toast? After all, I do call avocados “nature’s butter”, so they are kind of perfect on toast. And they are healthy butter at that, full of heart smart monounsaturated fat, the same kind that olive oil is famous for. Remember when fat was “bad” for you? I used to be scared of fat and you wouldn’t catch me with much more than mustard as a condiment on my sandwiches. Life was much less flavourful back then! I have to say, just plain avocado on toast is pretty darn good, BUT sometimes it’s nice to switch it up, so I thought I would create sweet and savory versions of avo toast and they both turned out delicious! The sweet version takes a little more work as it involves roasting the strawberries (worth it!), but if you are in a hurry, fresh strawberries would still be delicious on this toast. The savory version is super quick and easy!

ROASTED STRAWBERRY AVOCADO TOAST

Serves 1 for a meal or 2 for a snack

INGREDIENTSRoasted+Strawberry+Avocado+Toast

-2 slices bread of your choice. I like Silver Hills sprouted grain bread.
-1/2 avocado
-1 cup strawberries, sliced
-1/2 tbsp grapeseed oil
-1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
-Fresh basil, finely chopped
-Lavender honey or regular honey (optional)
-Freshly ground black pepper


INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 F. Coat sliced strawberries with grapeseed oil and balsamic vinegar and then spread them on a baking sheet and bake for about 30 minutes. Toast bread and spread 1/4 avocado on each slice. Top with roasted strawberries, fresh basil, and freshly ground black pepper. If using, drizzle honey on top. I got lavender honey from my local farmers’ market, but I’m sure you could infuse regular honey with dried culinary lavender to make your own or use any honey of your choice!

If you have extra roasted strawberries, enjoy them on oatmeal, yogurt, etc.!
