It seems everywhere I turn, there is a toast craze going on! Avocado toast has become a permanent fixture on many restaurant menus. I love avocado toast and could eat it every day but I decided to do a take on the classic peanut butter and jelly flavor combination. I used cashew butter and fresh figs and the results were incredibly delicious! I also topped it off with a drizzle of honey and Maldon sea salt to give it that sweet and savory flavor combination. During the summer months, I am always looking for easy breakfast and snack ideas, and this one is perfect!
Since the fig season here in California is rather short, I couldn't resist these when I saw a fresh basket at my farmers market. I have been adding them to everything from this toast, to salads, to cheese plates.
If you are doing any upcoming entertaining, you could to set out a "toast bar" for people to make their own. A basket of rustic bread, and all the fixings make it not only a cute display but also such an easy and delicious menu item.
Of course as I was just getting in the zone of shooting this blog post, our puppy woke up from her nap and quickly discovered that she wanted to be my little "helper" in the kitchen! ;) I might not have ended up getting all the shots I wanted for this post but the silver lining was that we had so much fun even if I had to tell her to get off the table a million times!
