Food Wars: The Ultimate Avocado Toast Taste Test
Inspired by Tasty, this week I asked my friends to submit their recipes for their avocado toast. Thank you to everyone who submitted a recipe! I ended up only selecting 3 recipes to try out and review because a lot of them were quite similar to each other. I feel like avocado toast is very personal to each individual because of their spice tolerance and flavour preferences. Prior to this taste test, I felt very proud of my recipe. Now, I have copied one of these recipes and am using it as my own. It’s just so good!
In this taste test, I judged each toast based on the following criteria:
Balance of Ingredients
How hard it is to make
I asked each contestant to describe what their avocado toast tasted like in three words or under, as well as explain how to make it with the quantities and ingredients.
Recipe #1 Made by Rachel
Description of this avocado toast: Creamy, tasty, crunchy
1 mashed avocado
Salt and pepper to taste
¼ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp cumin
Mash all the ingredients together
Place them on top of two pieces of toast
Add sliced tomato, more salt and pepper and extra paprika on top
This recipe was definitely tasty. It lived up to its description.
Balance of Ingredients: 3.7/5
Comments: Cumin is a wonderful spice to add to this recipe but I felt that it was a bit overpowering. That is honestly to preference and the amount of cumin you add can be to taste as well. In general, I thoroughly enjoyed the uniqueness of this recipe!
Recipe #2: Made by Miranda
Description of the avocado toast: Simple, tasty, messy
1 or 2 prices of Toast (any white or whole grain bread)
1 or half of an Avocado
Toast the bread in toaster
Add the seasonings to smushed avocado
Put the avocado on the toast
Balance of Ingredients: 3.5/5
Comments: I personally liked the touch of chilli powder in the recipe. My family uses chilli powder in almost every recipe and I love the flavour it brings to it. In the recipe though, there was no mention of salt and for that reason, I felt like there could have been more flavour with it. I thought that this was an easy to make recipe and enjoyed eating it!
Recipe #3: Made by Iris
Description of the avocado toast: Flavourful, filling, simple
⅛ - ¼ tsp of:
Lemon or lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Mash avocado in bowl and season
Crack an egg on to a buttered pan and cook until medium (slightly undercooked on the inside)
Cover with a lid to make it cook more evenly
Put a little but of salt and pepper on the egg
Put avocado spread on toast and top with the egg
Balance of Ingredients: 4.5/5
Comments: I absolutely loved this recipe. In fact, I made it for both my brother and I for breakfast and he requested that I make it again on the same day because he was craving it so much. This is the most similar to the recipe that I previously used but I enjoy this one better. The lime juice adds so much flavour and the egg, although not necessary, balances out the flavour so well and makes for a nice addition.
I hope you enjoyed the first edition of Food Wars, an article series that I want to continue! Below are two google forms I have attached that I would love for you to fill out so you can: a) tell me which recipes you would like to see reviewed in the future and b) to submit your recipe for the iced coffee recipe edition!
