In a rush... spicy avocado toast is a flavourful and satisfying treat that's quick to prepare. Here's a simple recipe to get you started:


  1. 2 slices of your favourite bread (sourdough, whole grain, rye, etc.)

  2. 1 ripe avocado

  3. 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (adjust to taste)

  4. 1/4 tsp ground cumin (optional for an extra kick)

  5. Salt, to taste

  6. Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  7. 1 small clove garlic, minced (optional)

  8. Juice from 1/4 lemon or lime

  9. Olive oil or chili oil, for drizzling

  10. Fresh cilantro or parsley, chopped (for garnish)

  11. 1 small red chili, thinly sliced (for extra spice and garnish, optional)

  12. Radish slices (optional for added crunch)

  13. Feta cheese or Cotija cheese crumbles (optional for added creaminess)


  1. Toast the Bread: Place the bread slices in a toaster or oven until they are golden brown and crispy.

  2. Prepare the Avocado: Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Scoop out the avocado flesh into a bowl. Using a fork, mash the avocado to your desired consistency. Some people prefer a smooth paste, while others like it chunky.

  3. Season the Avocado: To the mashed avocado, add red pepper flakes, ground cumin (if using), salt, black pepper, minced garlic (if using), and lemon or lime juice. Mix until all the ingredients are well combined.

  4. Assemble the Toast: Spread the spiced avocado mixture generously onto the toasted bread slices.

  5. Garnish: Drizzle with a bit of olive oil or chili oil. Sprinkle with cilantro or parsley, red chili slices (if using), radish slices, and cheese crumbles (if desired).

  6. Serve: Enjoy your spicy avocado toast immediately!
