Rye Toast with Tomato and Avocado
When I see “bread” on my shopping list, I know it can only mean one thing: 100% whole grain German rye! This versatile bread is a staple in my kitchen, my grocery shopping, and my daily life. It’s probably the healthiest bread around, with a lot of protein and iron. It’s found in most supermarkets and natural food stores in the shape of a brick, wrapped in clear plastic. Local bakers are also now selling it in some markets. Get it fresh, if you can.
While this bread is delicious toasted, it tastes quite raw straight out of the package. Don’t be turned off! It just needs a little time to warm up :) When I share it with clients and friends many fall hard for it—some stop eating white bread altogether.
Toast the bread for 8-10 minutes in the toaster or oven, until it’s crispy on the outside but still soft on the inside (patience is the key!).
Drizzle, sprinkle, and layer on your slices—and enjoy!
In addition to this tomato and avocado classic, I also like my rye toast with eggs, smoked salmon, greens, hummus, peanut butter and pumpkin seeds—or plain, with just a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt.
I would love to hear your thoughts!
