I love finding alternatives to the ‘regular’ avocado on toast. What often happens with the yummiest plant-based dishes is that they consist mainly out of carbohydrates and/or fats. With avocado toast, the toast or cracker provides the carbohydrates and the avocado provides the healthy fats. However, if you’re like me, meaning that you tend to have a hard time getting in enough protein everyday, this can be a bit annoying. This is why I thought of adding a plant-based protein source to this all-time favorite. Say hello to edamame beans!
For two toasts
- 1/4 avocado
- 70g edamame beans
- 1 tbsp hemp seeds
- Salt and pepper
- Chili flakes
- A pestle and mortar
I usually get frozen unshelled edamame beans from the supermarket. If you can’t get these anywhere, you could try the recipe out with other types of beans (think cannellini beans or chickpeas).
Simply crush the avocado, edamame beans and hemp seeds together. I used a pestle and mortar, but you could also just use a small food processor or a fork.
Top a cracker or toast with the avocado and edamame spread and sprinkle some sea salt, black pepper, and chili seeds on top.
