Smashed beets and crumbed fried avocado toast with onion aioli (gluten free)
Happy Moooooooonday!! Ya’ll, are you just as tire as I am? Dog days of summer are here, that’s for sure. But also, HOT. Like so hot I can’t stop sweating and gonna need all the ice cream to stay cool! Haha. That’s Texas for ya! Hot weather and fried foods. Well.. we can at least change one of those things today. Fried foods. How about we forgo the deep fry and instead start off this week with an EPIC avocado toast recipe. Fried yes, healthy… HELL (cause it’s that hot) yes! Smashed beet and Crispy Fried Avocado Toast with Onion Aioli.
WAIT WAIT, don’t run off. I promise the word “fried” and “aioli” should not be intimidating with avocado toast. In fact, they are the complete opposite. EASY, BREEZY, and yes I’m cheezy. Can you hang? Haha. Okay, I will get real for the rest of this post.
Avocado toast.. the new oatmeal of 2016. Trendy trendy.
I’m fine with these types of trends. Healthy. Simple. And you can totally jazz it up or play it safe, ya know? Avocado toast with berries, eggs, spicy sauce, whatever! Just go search the hash tag #avocadotoast on intsagram and find out for yourself!
My crazy Cotter Avocado toast recipe was actually inspired by my time in New Zealand. Go figure. As if I don’t talk about that place enough. Anyway, there is an AMAZING gourmet burger joint call Burger Fuel in New Zealand. They have the best flavors of grass fed burgers and vegan burgers, not to mention the different types of aioli to go with it. Oh and crumbed pumpkin bites called “motobites.” GLUTEN FREE options for almost each menu item! It’s our ABSOLUTE favorite place. Our goal is to make it a an American franchise, some day. But until then, I will just keep trying drooling over their creations and recreating my own versions here.
Hence this Smashed beet and gluten free fried avocado toast with onion aioli.
I do realize that this is just toast, but it’s TOAST inspired by trendy food and world wide flavors. Which makes it EPIC, right? Haha.
Please don’t feel intimated by the cooking process. It’s easier than making pancakes. Simply coat the underripe avocado slices in egg, coconut flout, and almond meal, then fry in a pan with coconut oil or butter. It’s MAGICAL!
Then you add that to smashed beets on toast. Here’s my tip. Buy organic canned beets, drain them, slightly reheat in microwave, then smash in a bowl. See, simple.
The aioli is optional but also SUPER easy. Just blend room temperature egg yolk with sweet onion, oil, and vinegar until a thick consistency is formed. You can easily make this egg free and turn it more into a dressing.
