This is the exact recipe that I make for breakfast every single morning. While avocado toast cannot really be called a “recipe,” I wanted to share this combination as it’s something I never get tired of.
Ingredients for the Best Tahini Avocado Toast
- Crusty sourdough bread (pictured here is from Izola)
- 1/2 ripe avocado
- Runny tahini
- Nutritional yeast
- Old Bay Seasoning
- Everything bagel seasoning
- Lemon Juice
How can I make Everything But the Bagel Seasoning at home?
To make Everything But the Bagel Seasoning, combine:
- 1 TBS poppy seeds
- 1 TBS toasted sesame seeds
- 1 TBS dried garlic
- 1 TBS dried onion
- 2 tsp sea salt
If you’re not familiar, “Everything But the Bagel” is the Trader Joe’s-specific name for this seasoning mix. If you live in the U.S. but are not near a Trader Joe’s store, a format of this blend is becoming more widely available. I recently purchased some at Aldi.
How to Find Tahini that is Not Bitter
Tahini (sesame seed butter) is becoming more widely available in the U.S. That being stated, there is a large amount of variance in quality, taste, and texture. I recommend the following:
- Purchase only tahini made from sesame seeds (without additives)
- Look for a very runny texture, much more liquid than a standard peanut butter
- Look for a label that reads “hulled.” Unhulled tahini contains the exterior shells of the sesame seeds which can lend a slightly more bitter taste. Hulled tahini is also smoother and typically lighter in color.
- “Raw” means that the sesame seeds were not roasted during the mixing process. Unroasted tahini has a more mild flavor and contains slightly more nutrients, but feel free to taste both to find your personal preference
How do we liquefy thick tahini that settles in the bottom of the jar?
To prevent tahini separation, stir the mixture as soon as you open it to evenly distribute any oils. If it has already thickened, simply scoop dried tahini out of that jar and blend in a food processor or high speed blender. This will encourage it to come back together. If it’s still hardened, add sesame oil to the blender one teaspoon at a time, pulsing at each interval.
