It’s Fantastical Food Fight time again and this month it’s a sourdough throw down!
I made my very first sourdough last summer and it was amazing, so I was super excited to give it another shot and try for a bit more carving!
I used the exact same recipe from the Kitchn’ because there’s just no messing with perfection (well, at least at this point when I’m still getting used to sourdough – I’m sure there will come a time when I start tinkering).
Last time I made sourdough, I got super overwhelmed about the sheer amount of starter I had on hand so I used it up right away and didn’t keep it going.
This time, I vowed, I would keep my starter going. I made this gorgeous bread (first we had some with stew, then we made avocado toast…more on that in a minute). Then I got brave and made sourdough pancakes. They were good, but not “gotta blog it good”. So I knew I wanted to give it another try, but not right away, there’s only so many pancakes one can eat in a short span of time.
So I maintained my starter for a few days, and then forgot to feed it, then remembered for a few days…and forgot again, and then it got all dried out and weird. And I couldn’t tell if it was normal dried out or if it had taken a turn, so I had to dump it (boo).
Thankfully, I had already made my avocado toast (and I still haven’t made more pancakes (sourdough or otherwise) and it’s been almost a month!) The avocado toast was amazing and everything I’d hoped it would be! And it was definitely my lunch for the week! Yum! Now I need to make more starter, so I can make more sourdough, so I can have more avocado toast!
Sourdough Avocado Toast
1 thick slice sourdough bread
Sprinkle of garlic powder
1/3 ripe avocado, sliced
1 large pinch sesame seeds
1 large pinch poppy seeds
1 small pinch dried minced onion
1 small pinch dried minced garlic

Preheat the broiler on the oven. Butter the bread and sprinkle with garlic powder. Place the bread on a pan and broil for 1-2 minutes or until the bread is toasted.
Place avocado on the toast, and sprinkle with the herbs. Serve immediately.
