Avocado Toast With Pumpkin Seeds

Avocado Toast With Pumpkin Seeds

Basic avocado toast gets a new twist with shelled pumpkin or sunflower seeds as the crunchy finishing touch.

This variation is as easy as sprinkling some seeds and crushed red pepper flakes on top of a lime and mashed avocado mix.

Toasting the seeds in a hot skillet for about 30 seconds brings out their nutty flavor, and is worth the extra effort.

Want to add protein? Top your toast with a poached egg or scrambled egg whites.
