Zippy Avocado Toast


Kids Advisory Board member Jai developed this easy, flavor-packed recipe when he was testing spices for us. It’s as great for breakfast or brunch as it is for lunch or a snack. Just make sure to use a nice, ripe avocado.

kitchen gear

  • Cutting board
  • Sharp knife (adult needed)
  • Toaster (adult needed)
  • Measuring cups
  • Fork



  • 1/4 cup hummus (any kind you like)
  • 2 slices whole-grain bread, toasted
  • 1 perfectly ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and thinly sliced
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 2 pinches cayenne pepper



  • Spread the hummus evenly on the toast, making a thin coating over the bread.
  • Put half the avocado slices on each piece of toast. Use a fork to mash and spread it evenly.
  • Sprinkle with the salt and pepper, then top it off with a pinch of cayenne.


Did you know?

Cayenne is made from dried, ground cayenne chile peppers. Jai described the spice as “hot but somewhat bland.”
