When life gives you extra dukkah, make avocado dukkah toast.
I’m not joking–it’s really good. I told you earlier this week that I’d probably make it, and yesterday, I finally took the plunge. Avocado pairs well with almost anything (in my extremely biased opinion), but it goes especially well with dukkah.
I love the way the salty pistachios, spicy cumin and coriander and crunchy sesame seeds taste with the avocado. If you squeeze some lemon juice on the avocado before you mash it up, it only improves the flavors.
An important part of this dish is the bread (I just hit cap locks by accident, so that almost read: BREAD). I felt like I sold a little piece of my soul the other day when I bought a loaf from the “foodie” section of the bread aisle at Whole Foods. But honestly, it’s worth it. Good bread makes a huge difference for toast. It’s the foundation for everything that comes next.
Avocado Dukkah Toast (from me, to you)
1 avocado, sliced and pitted
1/2 a lemon
pinch of salt
2 pieces of good bread
a handful of dukkah (recipe here)
Smash the avocado with the lemon and a pinch of salt. Toast the bread. Spread the avocado mixture on the toast and top with a generous handful of dukkah. Enjoy!
