THIS BUTTERY + ZESTY AVO SHROOM “TOAST” IS (Y)OUR NEW BRUNCH CLASSIC

All the avo + shroom devotees out there, this one's for you.

This special take on classic avo toast is excellent for an on-the-fly breakfast, midday snack or late-ish brunch, because the recipe is more “assembling” than “cooking.” It starts with a perfectly toasted Multigrain cracker and ends with a generous heap of bright green avo mash topped with tangy + crispy shrooms.


This recipe is everything an avo toast aspires to be: 

〰 Light
〰 Crunchy
〰 Creamy 
〰 Filling 
〰 Flavourful 
〰 Quick 
〰 Easy 

 

 

 

INGREDIENTS 

Avo Mash

  • 1 large avocado (room temp + pit removed)
  • 1 scallion
  • 1 garlic clove (chopped)
  • juice from half a lemon 
  • salt to taste 



Zesty Shrooms

  • 150 g small cremini mushrooms (halfed)
  • 2 garlic cloves (sliced)
  • 1 scallion (thinly sliced on a diagonal)
  • juice from half a lime 
  • leaves from 1 thyme spring 
  • chilli flakes (optional) 
  • 4 Multigrain crackers (toasted)

 

PREPARATION

1. Place scallion and 1 TSP olive oil in skillet, season with kosher salt, and cook, turning occasionally, until softened and deeply charred, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board; trim roots and discard. Finely chop scallions and place in a medium bowl.

2. Add chopped garlic and mashed avocado. Finely grate half of lemon zest into bowl, then cut lemon in half and squeeze in juice. Stir well to combine. Season with kosher salt and let sit while you make the shrooms.

3. Heat 2 TBSPs olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high until shimmering. Add garlic and scallion and cook for one minute. Add mushrooms and fresh thyme leaves and cook, tossing occasionally, until browned and crispy, 8–10 minutes. Season with salt, lime juice and then transfer to a plate.

4. Heat 1/2 TBSP oil in a large skillet over medium-high, add Smartbite crackers and toast them until browned on both sides. 

5. Smear avo mash on toasted crackers. Top with zesty shrooms. Sprinkle with chilli flakes if desired.
