Are you an avocado on toast lover? Well, we are giving it a bit of a spin and making an extra delicious and nourishing recipe. We love avocado as amain dish so I made this Avocado toast and asparagus with tofu skin on the side to feast on avocado, all day, every day.
I'm not sure if this is even an actual term. But every once in a while I find myself eating the same thing for many days in a row. I start getting bored but I can't figure out what else to eat, this is what I call a food rut.
As much as I love avocado, I have to admit that avocado on toast often goes into this food rut category. So, I have to pull out a few tricks from the bag to make it interesting again. I'm not giving up on my avocado and toast that easily.
Like with most of the recipes I make, this one is incredibly easy. I really like it because it's simple, all the ingredients are easy to find and you can make this beauty in 20 minutes or less. So, if you are after an easy vegan lunch option that's super healthy and not boring, this is the one.
I put together a few ingredients which might not seem to pair at all, but trust me, the combo is a treat. Also, you get a wide variety of different foods, different colours, different textures, therefore different nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
I find this to be one of the easiest easy to pack on nutrients. And have a healthy easy vegan lunch on those busy hectic days. Which is a big thing in my world, I don't want to compromise when it comes to eating healthy delicious meals.
Meals like this one are also a really easy way to incorporate more raw ingredients into your diet. I try to have as much raw food in my meals as I can. Although, I'm not always keen to eat or even make a side salad. So, throwing them in the main dish is a good easy alternative.
Ok, let me tell you what's in this recipe. First, I cooked a handful of asparagus in boiling water. I don't cook them for long, just enough so they become slightly soft. Around 5 minutes in the water will do. Once the asparagus cool down, I add blueberries, drizzle a bit of soy sauce and sprinkle chilli flakes. This little number on its own is super delicious and so incredibly healthy. Be ready to become obsessed!
To make it a full meal we need a bit extra. I included stir-fried tofu skin. I fry it just enough to make it golden brown. Season it with a bit of the kalak namak salt to get an earthy, smokey, slightly eggy flavour.
We just need what brought us here in the first place, the avocado on toast and you are set for a feast!
