HEALTHY avocado toast recipe takes just 5 min! My summer breakfast avocado toast has layers of pesto, wilted arugula, and avocado – ALL the green goodness!


  • 1 large slice bread (2 smaller)
  • 1 handful arugula
  • 1/2 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. prepared pesto
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • flaky sea salt
  • freshly cracked pepper
  • 1 fried or poached egg (optional)


  1. Heat nonstick pan over medium low heat. Fry egg in butter or oil according to preference if making and lightly wilt arugula (just for a 30 seconds or so, until just wilted). 
  2. Toast or grill bread. Spread bread with pesto and top with arugula and sliced avocado. 
  3. Drizzle with olive oil and season with flaky sea salt and black pepper to taste.


  • For the best summer flavor, brush bread with olive oil with a pastry brush and grill for 3-4 minutes per side over medium-high direct heat until lightly charred.
  • Nutrition facts don’t include optional egg.
