Avocado Toast with Caramelized Shallot and Feta


2 tsp. Olive oil
2 Large Shallots, raw (thinly sliced)
1 medium Avocados, raw
1/16 tsp. Salt
1 to taste Black pepper
1 ounce Feta cheese (crumbled)
2 slice Whole wheat bread (or gluten-free whole grain bread)


Place a small skillet over medium.

When the skillet is hot add the oil to the pan and swirl to coat.

Add the shallots and toss to coat well. Sauté for about 10 minutes until caramelized.

Adjust the heat so that the shallots brown but do not burn.

When the shallots are cooked, set aside.

While the shallots are roasting, mash the avocado in a small bowl.

Add the salt, pepper, and lemon juice, and fold together.

Toast the bread and then spread the avocado mixture on top.

Top with the caramelized shallot and then the crumbled feta.

The sweet umami flavor of the caramelized shallot goes perfectly with the sharp, salty taste of the feta cheese. Serve this topped with a poached egg for a perfect Sunday brunch dish.
