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.
