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.
Sharp knife (adult needed)
Toaster (adult needed)
- 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.
Cayenne is made from dried, ground cayenne chile peppers. Jai described the spice as “hot but somewhat bland.”
