Why does loaded avocado toast make the perfect CBD-infused breakfast?
Aside from making a delicious and nutritious breakfast, avocado toast is also the perfect base for a CBD-infusion. In fact, we often advise that users take their CBD dose alongside foods that are high in healthy fats, like avocado. This is because fatty foods can help increase the body’s absorption of CBD oil, which is naturally fat soluble. Further loading the meal with additional toppings can help with both absorption and nutrition, depending on the chosen ingredients. This recipe provides a new way to take your morning dose of CBD and combines it with a healthy meal that can increase its efficacy - what could be better than that?
Base avocado toast recipe
Before getting into all the fun topping ideas for this loaded breakfast, here’s the perfect base recipe for a delicious and versatile CBD-infused avocado toast.
Here’s what the recipe calls for:
- 1 avocado
- 2 slices sourdough bread
- ½ teaspoon garlic granules
- ½ lemon, juiced
- 2 tsp olive oil
- Your morning dose of CBD oil
- Sea salt and cracked black pepper to taste
Here are the recipe instructions:
- First, peel your avocado and remove the pit before placing it into a bowl.
- Next, add your garlic granules, salt, pepper, and lemon juice to the bowl with the avocado.
- In a separate bowl or ramekin, add your olive oil and CBD oil and stir.
- Pour your oil mixture into the bowl containing the avocado.
- Place both pieces of sourdough bread in the toaster and let cook for as long as needed to achieve your desired results.
- While your bread is toasting, use a fork or masher to break down the avocado and mix the other ingredients together until combined well.
- Remove your toast from the toaster and smear the smashed avocado mixture evenly on both slices.
- Add your chosen toppings to finish off your loaded CBD-infused avocado toast (check out the next section for our topping suggestions).
Loaded avocado toast topping options
Below are 15 of our favourite topping options for loaded avocado toast infused with CBD. These toppings can be mixed and matched or included on their own, depending on what suits your taste preferences and dietary requirements or restrictions.
1. Chilli flakes
If you’re looking for an easy yet effective way to add some heat to your morning meal, chilli flakes are the perfect choice. They can either be added at an earlier stage so that they’re incorporated into the smashed avocado mixture, or sprinkled on top at the end. Either way, the result will be a kick of spice that takes your simple breakfast to the next level.
Pesto is an popular ingredient that can totally change the flavour profile of various dishes. Adding it to avocado toast, whether alongside other complimentary ingredients like cheese and tomatoes, or on its own, is a great way to mix up this simple recipe. It can be spread on your toast before the avocado mixture, combined with the mixture itself, or added to the top of the meal for an Italian twist on this classic breakfast.
3. Sundried tomatoes
While regular tomatoes also go well with this meal (which we cover in a later section), fans of sundried tomatoes will argue that they take avocado toast from tasty to mouth-wateringly delicious. This simple ingredient can be paired with many other options on this list, such as cheese, pesto, and onions, or enjoyed as a solitary topping. Simply place your desired amount of sun dried tomatoes on top of your smashed avocado toast and enjoy!
Cheese, whether it’s hard or soft, plant-based or dairy, light or mature, can help enhance the indulgence and flavour of almost any meal. From mozzarella to parmesan, cheddar to red leicester, and everything in between, your favourite cheese can make a great addition to this recipe. Not only is it delicious, it’s also rich in healthy fats. This means that alongside avocado, it can help increase your body’s absorption of CBD into the bloodstream.
5. Assorted seeds
There are countless types of seeds you can add to your avocado toast to increase its nutrient profile while also offering some extra crunch. Most seeds can help with the body’s absorption of CBD due to their naturally high fat content. Depending on your palate, you may choose to add sesame seeds, roasted pumpkin seeds, or poppy seeds to your meal. Some people even like to add pomegranate seeds for a hint of sweetness.
One of the most popular additions to avocado toast is eggs. You can add almost any type of eggs to this recipe, including poached, scrambled, and fried. This addition offers some extra protein while enhancing the flavour profile of the meal.
If you’re looking for a plant-based protein to add to your avocado toast, tofu is a great option due to its versatility. You could make tofu scramble or egg-style patties to accompany your meal if you’re looking for a way to substitute eggs. There are also many other ways to incorporate tofu, such as salt and pepper chunks or tofu-based bacon alternatives. It essentially acts as a blank canvas that you can flavour and cook however you like to compliment the rest of your meal.
8. Garlic chips
While the base recipe already contains a small amount of garlic granules, that may not be enough if you’re a garlic enthusiast. Crispy garlic chips or chunks offer a unique way to add some extra flavour to this recipe. Making them is as simple as pan-frying thin slices of garlic cloves with your choice of oil. Once strained, the result gives you a crunchy garnish perfect for finishing off recipes like this one.
Salmon, particularly smoked salmon, is a wildly popular addition to savoury breakfast dishes, including avocado toast. It adds its own unique flavour while complementing the rest of the meal, in addition to offering extra nutrients and essential fatty acids. Like seeds and cheese, salmon is high in natural fats and can therefore increase your body’s absorption of CBD, making it an especially great topping option for this particular recipe.
Onions add some punch to any meal, and there are countless different varieties to choose from. Whether you prefer your onions to be caramelised, crispy, pickled, or raw, they will pair well with avocado toast and most of the other topping options on this list. Red, white, and spring onions all make great additions to this recipe, and shallots are perfect for those who prefer a milder option. The bottom line is that you can add onions your own way, whatever that may be.
11. Roasted chickpeas
If you’re not a fan of tofu but would still like to include some form of plant-based protein, chickpeas are a perfect choice. Roasted chickpeas in particular pair wonderfully with avocado toast, adding some extra crunch and flavour in addition to protein. They can be seasoned any way you like before roasting, but popular options include garlic and paprika. The final product can then either be included in the base mixture or added as a garnish to the top of the toast for a delicious, protein-packed finish.
A classic staple of countless breakfast recipes, this flavourful protein option makes a great addition to avocado toast. Whether you plan to lay rashers on top or underneath the smashed avocado mixture, or sprinkle smaller pieces as a garnish, it’s sure to make this meal more filling, indulgent, and delicious. There are also plenty of plant-based bacon options to choose from if you like the sound of this topping but want to avoid animal products.
13. Microgreens and herbs
Microgreens are the shoots of vegetables commonly used in salads, harvested right after the first leaves appear. They make the perfect garnish for this meal by adding some extra nutrients, texture, and flavour. In addition to microgreens, herbs also serve as delicious and nutritious garnishes. Popular options include chives, dill, parsley, and basil, but you can choose any herb you’d like to top off this breakfast recipe.
14. Hot Sauce
If you’re not a fan of chilli flakes or want to add some extra spice, why not include your favourite hot sauce? Whether it’s sriracha, tabasco, or chilli oil, any hot sauce can give this recipe a flavourful kick of spice. Depending on the ratios you prefer, you may choose to add your sauce to the base smashed avocado recipe or drizzle it on top of the finished product.
15. Extra veggies
The base recipe of this breakfast is healthy on its own, but there’s no harm in adding some extra vegetables to the mix. This helps diversify the flavour of the meal while also making it more nutrient dense. Popular options for this type of recipe include sliced tomatoes, grated carrots, chopped cucumber, and radish. These aren’t the only options, as you can add any vegetable you like to this recipe, either within the mixture or as a topping. Whether they’re cooked, raw, or pickled, there are no wrong answers when adding veggies to your morning meal.
