What’s for breakfast on National Avocado Day, July 31st? Avocado toast, of course! This take on the popular light meal and snack features three avocado toast recipes from kitchen designer and vintner, Caren Rideau.

Her first book, Caren Rideau: Kitchen Designer, Vintner, Entertaining at Home (photo #4) is an inspiration for anyone looking to revitalize a home. Just published, it is available on Amazon and elsewhere.

The vibrant designs and gorgeous photography make you want to move right in.

In her book, Caren both shares the process and inspiration behind her creative interiors, and offers some of her go-to recipes and wine pairings for easy entertaining (think: summery ceviche with Albariño; butternut squash soup with Grenache; or steak tacos with Syrah).

    HASS AVOCADOS

    This recipe uses Hass avocados, which have the creamiest flesh for mashing (other varieties are more fibrous).

    The Hass avocado is named after Rudolph Hass, a California postman who planted a seedling in his front yard in the 1920s. He liked the fruit so much that he patented the cultivar in 1935.

    When Hass died in 1952 (coincidentally, the year his patent expired), he had no idea that the black-green-skinned avocado with the pebbled flesh would come to comprise 95% of the avocados grown in California and 80% of the avocados eaten worldwide.

    RECIPE: AVOCADO TOAST THREE WAYS

    “This is my go-to dish when I have overnight guests,” says Caren, “as everybody loves it! I like spice and acid in my avocado base, so feel free to cut back on the lime juice and spice, if you prefer.”

    For a wine pairing, Caren suggests her Dry Riesling (photo #3), “as the acid and aromatic fruit in the Riesling is an unbeatable choice for enhancing all the garnishes.”
     
    Ingredients For 6 Servings

  • 5 ripe Haas avocados, cut in half and pit removed
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 heavy teaspoon of red chili flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 slices of sourdough or country bread
  • Olive oil for brushing the toast
  • 4 ounces smoked salmon
  • Crème fraîche for garnish
  • Pickled white onions, thinly sliced and marinated in lime juice for 20 minutes
  • Capers for garnish
  • 4-6 slices of cooked bacon, chopped in 1-inch pieces
  • 2 cups arugula, tossed with 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 12 cherry tomatoes, each cut into 4 pieces and tossed with salt and pepper
  • 1-2 Fresno chilis, thinly sliced (substitute red jalapeños)
  •  
    Preparation

    1. SCOOP out the flesh of the avocados, place in a large bowl, and mash with a fork, leaving the mixture slightly chunky.

    2. ADD the salt, pepper, chili flakes, and lime juice. Taste to adjust the flavors.

    3. BRUSH the bread with olive oil and toast it on both sides in the oven or the toaster oven at 450º until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool.

    All avocado toast begins with a hefty amount of the avocado base and then the addition of your favorite toppings.

  • For the smoked salmon toast, layer the smoked salmon and garnish with pickled onions, crème fraîche, and capers.
  • For the bacon toast, layer the bacon, arugula, and Fresno chiles.
  • For the vegetarian toast, layer the arugula and chopped tomatoes.
