The recipe starts as whole-grain or sprouted whole-grain toast topped with avocado. Then you glam it up to make it super satisfying. Top it with protein-packed, plant-based picks. Recipe and image courtesy of Jackie Newgent, RDN.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 1

  • 1/4 cup Shelled Edamame Frozen
  • 1/4 tsp fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 medium avocado
  • 1/2 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 slices Whole Grain Bread
  • 12 Fresh Basil Leaves
  • 2 tbsp Pistachios Roasted/Salted (no shells)
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS

1 Boil the edamame according to package directions; drain well. Transfer to a small bowl and toss with the rosemary and 1/8 teaspoon of the salt; set aside.
2 Remove the seed and peel from the avocado half. Transfer the avocado to a separate small bowl. Add the lemon juice and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and mash well using a fork; set aside.
3 Toast the whole grain (or sprouted whole grain) bread. Spread the avocado mixture onto the toasts. Arrange in rows onto each toast the edamame, basil, and pistachios.
4 Sprinkle with the pepper (if desired) and serve.
