Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon  olive oil
  • 1/4  onion, sliced
  • 15  grape tomatoes, halved
  •   Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2  avocado, peeled and pitted
  • slices bread, toasted
  • sprigs chives, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon  chive blossoms (optional)*

Avocados make a great cream cheese substitute because they bring a smooth consistency in addition to a healthy dose of fiber, potassium, and vitamin B. Give your breakfast a boost by spreading avocado on toast, then topping it with sautéed tomatoes and onions as well as fresh chives, garnished with chive blossoms. This recipe comes to us from Melissa of Foodista.com.

Directions

Heat the olive oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and tomatoes to the skillet and sauté until soft, about 5-8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and set aside.

Evenly smear avocado onto each slice of toast. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Top the avocado evenly with the sautéed onion-tomato mixture. Garnish the toast with fresh chives and their blossoms, if using.

Notes

*Note: Chives are easily homegrown and produce beautiful edible blossoms, so try picking some up at your local farmers market or growing them in your own backyard.
