If you don't want a bunch of stuff on your toast, you can stick with just mashed avocado on your bread. You may want to consider adding a dash of lemon juice as it keeps the avocado from turning brown.

Tips for choosing the right avocado

Creating the best avocado toasts recipes becomes a moot point if you do choose the freshest avocados for your meals. But it turns out this process doesn't have to be so difficult. Katy Green, a produce field inspector at Whole Foods Market, offers some tips.

  • Color: A dark, purplish color indicate ripeness but if what you notice is a vibrant green hue instead, then the avocado is unripe.
  • Texture: Another indicator of a good avocado is one that is firm or has a subtle give to it. "You should not be able to feel pockets of air between the skin and the flesh," Green said.
  • Appearance: Mold of any kind on the avocado skin is a no-no.
