Pomegranate-Grapefruit Avocado Toast

Instead of eating your breakfast fruit separately from your toast, try combining them! This unique avocado toast is topped with tart grapefruit slices and pomegranate arils and tangy feta cheese. 

Ingredients

Servings  4   Serving Size   1 toast

  • 1 1/2 medium avocados (halved, pitted, diced)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/16 teaspoon salt
  • 4 slices whole-wheat bread (lowest sodium available, toasted)
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate arils (seeds)
  • 1 cup ruby red grapefruit segments (sliced)
  • 1/4 cup fat-free feta cheese (optional)

Directions

  1. Put the avocados, lime juice, and salt in a small bowl. Using a fork, gently mash the avocados, stirring to combine with the lime juice and salt.
  2. Spread the avocado mixture over each slice of bread. Sprinkle with the pomegranate arils. Top with the grapefruit. Sprinkle with the feta.

Cooking Tip: To easily remove the arils from a pomegranate, quarter the fruit and place the pieces in a large bowl of water. For each piece, pull the skin back to expose the arils. Release them using your fingers. Remove the pomegranate skins and any pith from the water. Using a colander, drain the arils.

Keep it Healthy: Avocado toast is a quick, portable, and nutritious breakfast. Experiment with other healthy toppings, such as sliced radishes, mashed hard-boiled eggs, roasted tomatoes, and cucumber slices.

Tip: A squeeze of lime juice keeps the avocado from turning brown.
