Like I said. Avo on toast is the best lunch you can every imagine. Period! Here is Melbourne you cannot have a lunch cafe where you don’t have avo on toast on the menu. It’s a classic! And for good reason, because the creamy texture and rich taste of avocado with a good swirl of flavour from other ingredients is a luxurious lunch. And it is so funny, because even though it is fairly easy to make, I still like to order it every now and then at a cafe. Especially with poached egg which is something I can’t do properly. Or when they combine is with things like peas and apples. The combination I wouldn’t think off. Untill now, because here is the Life To Enjoyce version of avo on toast. All vegan with tempeh and haloumi. Yes finally a good haloumi I can eat after being dairy intolerant. It’s all about the little things in life right?!
So for this lunch you want to start with the tempeh and haloumi. Cut these in smaller pieces whilst warming up some coconut oil in a pan. Fry both the tempeh and the haloumi in the pan whilst you are making the sauce out of coconut aminos and maple syrup. If you are not vegan, you can also use some honey. Mix it all up and drizzle it over the tempeh. If you have more time you can actually marinate the tempeh in the sauce, but ain’t nobody got time for that right?! Let everything grill until it becomes nice and crispy and brown.
Meanwhile you can roast your bread in the toaster. Because of my intolerance I have to use gluten free bread, but feel free to use every whole grain, sourdough of whatever you please bread. Then it is surprise time to find out whether your avocado is ready to be put on bread. The best ones are ripe enough so that you can spread it as butter on your toast. Fingers crossed! So spread your avo on toast and then add some salt and pepper to taste. Top everything of with the tempeh and haloumi. Enjoyce!
