In this chapter of I love avocado toast more than life itself, I bring you avocado toast with black lentils.
I saw the recipe on Instagram and it was love at first sight. I had never thought to put black lentils on avocado toast, but it’s a brilliant combination (for some reason, that part of the sentence came out with a British accent).
I would highly, highly recommend buying the vegan chipotle mayonnaise to spread on the toast (under the avocado). It adds a little kick and pairs well with the balsamic and avocado. I bought Hampton Creek’s “Just Mayo” and I’m going to start using it on all my sandwiches.
Okay…so I’ve been backpedaling about talking about this because I feel like a fan girl and I surprised myself by liking it so much. But I’m kind of obsessed with the movie Begin Again. I just watched it on Netflix and it’s good. SO good. Here is one of my favorite songs from the movie.
Avocado Toast with Black Lentils (from The First Mess’s Instagram)
two pieces of good bread (I used multigrain)
1 avocado, smashed
Maldon sea salt
1/4 cup black lentils, cooked and drained
hemp seeds, nutrionial yeast and balsamic for topping
Smash an avocado in a small bowl with juice from half a lemon. Sprinkle in some Maldon sea salt and pepper to taste. Toast some good bread. Spread the avocado on top of the bread and top with black lentils. Sprinkle on some hemp seeds and nutritional yeast. Drizzle balsamic on top. Eat immediately for the best results.
