AVOCADO TOAST + ARUGULA PUMPKIN SEED PESTO
  
RECIPE
INGREDIENTS

AVOCADO TOAST

2 slices whole-grain wheat bread or gluten free bread
1 avocado sliced
1 Roma tomato sliced
1 cucumber sliced
2 radishes sliced
1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
½ tsp chia seeds
1 tbsp tahini
sprouts of choice
Salt & Pepper to taste
Red Pepper Chili oil (any brand is fine)
 


INGREDIENTS

FOR PESTO

1 cup arugula washed and dried
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds (raw or toasted)
1 clove garlic
1 tsp grated lemon zest
2 tbsp cold water
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
salt & pepper to taste


PREPARATION

1. Start by making the pesto - combine all pesto ingredients into the food processor or blender and process until smooth. You want it to be a little liquidy, taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Yup that simple!

2. Toast your bread

3. Prep your avocado - slice the avocado in half and remove the pit. Carefully, make cuts into the avocado to make thin slices. Then, using a spoon scoop the slices out of the avocado.

4. Assemble your avocado toast - layer avocado, cucumber and tomato slices on to the toast (see the photos as reference). Drizzle pesto, tahini and chili oil onto the toast. Top with sliced radishes, sprouts, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds and salt and pepper to taste. 

SERVE AND ENJOY!
