There’s no denying it: avocado toast is in. This delicious (and nutritious) trend is the perfect way to start your day, or makes for a nice lighter lunch or dinner. Now the plot twist: add Parma! Vegan Parmesan to level up your avo-toast game! Here’s a favorite recipe Shannon uses:
- A piece of your favorite bread, toasted
- purple onion – sliced thin with a mandolin is my favorite
- tomato (I used an orange heirloom)
- microgreens or sprouts
Put your toast on a plate, smash the avocado across the top, layer with Parma!, onion, tomato, sprouts, kraut (and whatever else floats your boat) – enjoy!
Like Parma!, microgreens are healthy because they are nutrient-dense, meaning they are concentrated sources of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Foods with these qualities are also referred to as superfoods. Compared to their adult counterparts, microgreens contain up to 40x the vitamins and a broader spectrum of antioxidants. Microgreens are suitable to eat raw which helps them retain their nutrients, as the high heat in cooking can destroy enzymes, vitamins, and phytonutrients.
