Enjoy the simplicity of this winning avocado toast.

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces fresh goat cheese
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons chopped watercress, plus sprigs for garnish
  • 4 slices hearty whole grain bread
  • 1 large avocado
  • 4 small red radishes or a medium watermelon radish, thinly sliced

Preparation

  1. In a medium bowl, mash the cheese and mix in the lemon zest and chopped watercress.
  2. Toast the bread. Spread 1/4 of the cheese mixture on each piece of toast. Halve the avocado lengthwise, carefully remove the pit, then use a paring knife to slice the flesh thinly in the shell. Use a soup spoon to scoop out the slices, and fan 1/4 of the avocado over each slice of toast. Top with radish slices and garnish with watercress sprigs.

Serving Suggestion

Having friends over for breakfast or lunch? Try a make-your-own avocado toast buffet, with a couple of choices of hearty bread to toast, additional toppings like tahini, olive oil, chopped fresh tomatoes and cucumbers, and sprinkle-ons like toasted sesame seeds, za’atar, or snipped fresh herbs.
