Sourdough Avocado Toast



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
Butter
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
Salt & pepper


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.

  4. Your bread looks so good. I think I need to make another loaf, after I make the waffles, pancakes, bread, rye bread. Good thing starters can be an on going thing.

  5. Looks so fantastic! I store my sourdough in the fridge and bring it out to feed it when I want to use it. Usually a couple days in advance.
