To celebrate the launch of my newest low carb cookbook ‘Keto in 15 Minuten’, I want to treat you to one of my favorite quick breakfast and lunch recipes from the new book: 3 Variations of Avocado Toast, no bread needed.
The base for the avocado toast are grain free seed crackers, a recipe you can find in our English Start to Keto eBook. I usually make a triple batch because you can easily store them in the fridge for 3 months or longer. They really come in handy on busy workdays when you’re short in time because with these crackers as the base you can whip up a delicious and healthy meal in just 5 minutes.
The vegan version of this avocado toast has finely sliced chili pepper, an excellent toppings if you love spicy food. For a milder variety, make sure to remove the seeds before slicing the chili. Did you know that chili contains a special plant compound called ‘capsaicin’ that will help your body to stay warm and may even stimulate fat-burning? It will also help you to regulate your appetite and stay satisfied for longer.
If you prefer to cook vegetarian, top the avocado toast with a poached or softly boiled egg. Delicious for breakfast or as a quick lunch with a cup of fresh vegetable soup.
Good quality eggs (from your own backyard chickens or organic free-range) are particularly high in protein, vitamin D and B12, iron and choline – an essential nutrient to keep your cells young, to strengthen your muscles, to feed your brain and to assist your liver in burning fat.
The third version with smoked salmon is a great source of omega 3 fats, important to lower inflammation and keep your immune system strong. I love serving the avocado toast with smoked salmon for lunch with a simple salad. It makes a fabulous brunch recipe too!
Which version of avocado toast will you try first? The vegan version with spicy chili, the vegetarian version with a softly boiled egg or the omega-3 rich version with smoked wild salmon?
Do you have other ideas for fun toppings? I’d love to try them all so definitely leave your suggestions in the comments :)
