Pistachio & Avocado Butter toast with Roasted Mushroom and Tomato-Jagruti's Cooking Odyssey

Brighten up your day with this well-balanced and colourful breakfast, Pistachio, Avocado Butter Toast with roasted Mushroom and Tomato, it would bring a sheer joy.

Although I like to spend less time in the kitchen for to prepare our breakfast, that doesn't mean I just open any cereal boxes. There are many breakfast recipes which are easy and quick to prepare yet they are filling and healthy. My husband's favourite Protein Packed Granola, Overnight coconut, cardamom and mango buckwheat porridge, Cinnamon Buckwheat Porridge with Avocado and berries Buckwheat, Banana, cashew and Cinnamon Smoothie , Oaty Fruit Salad etc.

Occasionally, I do like to treat my family and prepare something exciting and time-consuming, every bite of this Gujarati Bhakhri with Masala Chai and Eggless Ricotta and Cinnamon Hot Pancakes vanishes into thin air. Our all time favourite Batata Poha ( beaten rice with potatoes) brings all of us to the table in no time. Our weekend special Fafda and Jalebi satisfies our Gujju soul and how can I forget quite a royal treat Badam Halwa, Poori and Potato and Chick Pea Curry? Oh, this luxurious and heavenly breakfast meal is bliss!

The avocado was introduced to me by my SIL, almost 24 years ago, and I instantly fell in love with it and haven't grown out of it. I'd happily eat it on its own, but a couple of times I have prepared few dishes using Avocados like Avocado and Strawberry salad with Honey Vinaigrette , Avocado Dill Cream , and Avocado and Fenugreek Paratha, which were all phenomenal.

Last year I saw Avocado Toast recipe pins were flooding onto Pinterest feeds, they were so tempting, so I jumped on board the Avocado toast express. I know they are all the rage right now! So one morning, whilst I was eating it, I asked my kids and husband to try it. In the evening I had a phone call from husband, "Do we have enough avocados, or shall I bring some for you?", he said, next morning he wanted to have avocado on toast :) We love mashed avocado immensely, especially with Rye bread. For a long time, we ate it the same way, just mashed the avocado and spread on the toast, sprinkle a little salt and black pepper.

But then, I wanted a veg and protein packed breakfasts,  so I prepared avocado butter by using pistachio nuts, as they offer a good source of protein, fats and minerals. The addition of roasted mushrooms and tomato made this breakfast meal more healthy and we achieved our goal to 7-a-day, yes you read it correctly, health experts are now saying that seven is a magic number to stay fit and healthy.

In the family, everyone enjoyed this creamy and crunchy, all in one super delicious bite. It's totally balanced both in flavours and nutrition. Actually, this toasts can be eaten as a light summer lunch as not much prep to do. In other words, excellence!

Make sure you use thick and hearty bread slices, so the toast is able to hold the toppings. I have used Waitrose Rye and wheat dark sourdough bread.
