Ingredients

  • 2 small slices of whole grain country-style bread
  • 1/4 soft avocado, mashed to desired texture
  • 1/4 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 radishes, thinly sliced, optional
  • 2 white mushrooms, thinly sliced, optional
  • 2 lemon wedges
  • 1 teaspoon basil-infused oil or olive oil (see note in step 4)
  • Coarse salt, optional

Directions

Step 1

Toast bread on the stovetop or in a toaster. Spread avocado evenly on toasts.

Step 2

Top toasts with black beans, radishes, and mushrooms, if using.

Step 3

Squeeze lemon over toast and drizzle with oil. If using, top with coarse salt such as pink Himalayan salt or sea salt.

Step 4

To make basil oil: Puree 1/4 cup olive oil with 1/4 cup basil leaves until smooth. Heat oil mixture in a saucepan for 30 seconds, until fragrant. Let cool and press oil through a mesh strainer, discarding the solids. Store in an airtight refrigerated container for up to one week. If desired, double the recipe and heat oil for 30 seconds longer.

Step 5

Handy Hint: Brush bread with coconut oil before stovetop toasting for delicious, nutty flavor.
