I’ve been through a few variations of avocado toast addiction, but this one is worth sharing. For those of you not familiar with furikake, it’s a Japanese seasoning usually made of sesame seeds, salt, sugar and seaweed, although it comes in various flavors. About a month ago, I started sprinkling it onto my avocado toast in lieu of my normal lemon-salt-pepper mixture and I haven’t stopped eating it like this since. I add a dash of togarashi for some heat but you could add any kind of spice. You can find furikake and togarashi in the ethnic aisle of some supermarkets, but not all will carry them. Your best bet is going to a Japanese market (which will certainly carry these), or ordering them on Amazon. They’re totally worth seeking out as they’re relatively cheap and will last a while. Happy snacking!
AVOCADO TOAST WITH FURIKAKE
- Place the sliced avocado on your toast and drizzle with tamari, soy sauce or salt and sprinkle with generous amounts of furikake. Add a dash of togarashi for heat.
