Shopping List


  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • ¼ cup basil leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • sea salt and black pepper, to taste


  • 2-4 slices of your favorite bread (we like Ezekial Sprouted Grain)
  • pat of high-quality and/or great tasting butter



  1. In a large bowl, place avocado cubes (watch this video if you aren’t familiar with cubing an avocado), red pepper flakes (if using), basil, olive oil, lemon juice, and a little bit of salt and pepper (about ½ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper). Gently stir... There’s no need to mash.
  2. Toast bread slices, and rub it with butter. I like it lightly rubbed with Amish butter, but it’s definitely a personal preference.
  3. Top with avocado spread and sprinkle with more salt and pepper, a swirl of olive oil, and a bit of sriracha (if using).
