What you need
For the tomatoes
- Cherry or Grape Tomatoes – These are quite juicy, and when roasted they give you that burst tomato flavor and texture. As a bonus, they’re perfectly bite-sized! Plum or Roma tomatoes are a great alternative but cut them into bite-sized pieces before roasting.
- Dried Oregano & Dried Parsley – Roasting tomatoes with these dried herbs give the tomatoes a beautiful, Mediterranean flavor.
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Sea Salt & Black Pepper – Roasting essentials!
For the Avocado Toast
- Bread – Pick your favorite bread to toast. Ciabatta, Sourdough, a French Baguette would work. Sprouted wheat, gluten-free, or whole-grain bread are also great options.
- Guacamole – Either store-bought or homemade guacamole work for this recipe. Homemade is always recommended as the freshest way to go, but either way is fine. You could also just mash avocado with a little salt and pepper since there are so many other flavors in this recipe.
- Arugula – Any greens will work. If you’re not a fan of the sharp slightly bitter taste of arugula, swap in spinach instead.
- Feta Cheese – Use fresh from the brine if you can, just because it has a much nicer flavor and texture. Substitute goat cheese or fresh mozzarella if you prefer.
- Sprouts – A TON of nutrients in these little guys. Any type of sprout will work or microgreens (broccoli, mustard, arugula) will work as well. Garlic, zucchini, onions, bell peppers are great veggie options if you’re not a fan of leafy greens.
How to roast the tomatoes
In a large enough baking dish, add tomatoes with herbs, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Toss until well combined.
Place the baking dish on a baking tray. Roast for 10 minutes in a preheated oven at 425°F.
Allow to cool slightly while you prepare toast with guacamole, arugula, feta, and sprouts. Top with roasted tomatoes.
Yes! It is. If you have bread that isn’t too high in simple carbs and made with refined sugar (i.e. plain white bread) you’re ahead of the game when it comes to whole grains and high fiber toast. However, even if you are using white bread, the stuff on top is full of nutritional value! Guacamole is made with nutrient-dense avocado. Tomatoes are high in vitamin C and antioxidants, and the greens are loaded with calcium, folate, vitamin B, vitamin K, and the list goes on.
Not only that, but when you start your day with a filling breakfast, it satiates your hunger, balances your blood sugars, and also helps you avoid eating too many snacks!
Roma, plum, cherry or grape tomatoes are great for roasting. They’re juicy and so flavorful. If you happen to roast more than you need, keep them and use them for pizza and pasta sauce, soups, and salads!
How to make this toast your own
- Add an egg! Or try this avocado toast with egg.
- Instead of roasting the tomatoes, try using fresh tomatoes like in this Caprese avocado toast.
- For a little extra protein, add some smoked or grilled salmon to your roasted tomato, avocado, and herbs.
- Skip the guacamole and use mashed or sliced avocado, topped with caramelized onion, feta, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
- If you’re making lunch or light dinner, add a cooked chicken breast on top or on the side.
- For a bright and flavorful finish, squirt a bit of lemon juice on top followed by a sprinkling of everything bagel seasoning.
- Make it vegan by leaving off the feta cheese or using a vegan cheese.
Allow roasted tomatoes to cool down completely, then store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Roasted tomatoes can be stored in the freezer, although it’s recommended to make them fresh (it only takes 10 minutes). If you do freeze them, keep them in a freezer-friendly zip-top bag for up to 1 month.
