Fresh Box Market Part 2: spicy avocado toast
By now, unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know what avocado toast is. Most of you have probably posted it in different variations on social media, as I have.
My favorite way to eat avocado is mashed, atop toast with a sprinkle of garlic salt. When I have it at restaurants, it’s often served with a poached egg, as well.
Fresh Box recently launched their new online market, featuring local items that you can use as part of your every day home cooking repertoire (especially now as you shelter in place). You don’t need to have a meal box subscription to order from the market; just browse and place your order Monday through Friday, then your box is delivered the following week. You get email notifications the whole way so you know when to expect your box.
They sent me a sample box so I could try some of the items available for sale, two of which were spicy condiments: Da Kine Hawaiian hot sauce, and Hawaii Pantry chili pepper water. Since I already had a ginormous avocado from Lovan Farm, I decided to try sprinkling some of the hot sauce on my avocado toast for something different.
OMG, it was friggen delicious! Where has this been all of my life? The fatty avocado is perfect with the spicy hot sauce — and I’ve been leaning toward spicy foods while in isolation. Try it! This works with either condiment, it depends on how you like your spiciness.
And if you’re actually new to avocado toast and need a “recipe,” here’s something you can follow until you learn to eyeball it.
- 2 slices bread
- 1 ripe avocado
- 2 eggs
- salt and pepper to taste
- Juice of 1 lemon (optional)
- Da Kine Hawaiian hot sauce or Hawaii Pantry chili pepper water
Toast bread or broil in oven on low until golden brown. In a medium bowl, combine inside of avocado with lemon juice (optional) and salt. Spread it on top of the toasted bread. In a frying pan or skillet, fry eggs in oil and season with salt and pepper. Top the avocado toast with the egg, and drizzle hot sauce on top.
What else do you put hot sauce on, that changes the game? Let me know!
