I’m obsessed with Avocado toast. Very simply put it is Avocado with salt/pepper on a slice of toast, sometimes I’ll drizzle a splash of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. If you love Avocado then this should quickly become a part of your ‘quick’ breakfast lineup.
Some mornings it’s ‘every man for them self’ as my husband would call it. The kids will typically gravitate towards cereal or oatmeal and fruit while my husband generally has grits or cereal with some fruit or toast for example. This particular morning I planned on my usual Avocado toast, but looking around I had all the components that I use to make Guacamole, another favorite. So Guac on Toast it is! Enjoy.

While I was in the process of creating a recipe the other day (Chive Sauce for Potato Cakes) there was a point during the recipe development that I needed to add a little more water since I was creating a sauce and all. Just before adding more water at that moment the consistency resembled Pâté to me, so I made a mental note at that moment that I wanted to remake the recipe as a Pâté. This dip is phenomenal on crackers, tortilla chips, pretzels, celery etc. Warning – this is addicting. 🙂  Enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 Cup Cashews, soaked
Juice of ½ Lemon
1 Tsp Sea Salt
1 Tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
3-4 Garlic Cloves, chopped
2 ½ Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
½ Cup Sunflower Seeds
(.75 oz) Chives, chopped (abt ½ cup packed chopped)
½ Cup Water

Directions:
-Soak cashews, I soaked for about 1 hr or overnight, then rinse and drain.
-Combine all ingredients in high-speed blender (I used my nutribullet). Refrigerate for a couple hours, if you can resist, to allow it to firm up. Serve and Enjoy!
