Korean Style Avocado Toast

Korean Style Avocado Toast

Last Updated on June 3, 2023

There’s something about Asian flavors that are so addictive. It’s probably my favorite cuisine if I (Peter) had to choose and not because Akiko is Japanese either. It seems as if she is making more Korean food rather then Japanese food lately but who’s complaining? If you love avocado toast and Asian food, you instantly made your day so much better!!

The Toast

Avocado toast by itself is magical but when you combine with spicy Korean flavors, scallions, toasted sesame oil, and cucumbers on warm toasted bread, it’s jaw dropping!

The Secret

The key to make a great avocado toast (or any dishes) is to use good quality ingredients. We use County Wheat Bread from Zak The baker which is a local bread company here in Miami and probably our favorite. Luckily, some of their selections are available at a local Whole Foods Market. Now, for the spiciness, using Gochugaru (Korean chile pepper flakes) from Mother-in-Law’s makes a huge difference! The aroma of the gochugaru is very smoky and fruity, it also has a deep red color to it. The last of the tri-factor of flavor is the toasted sesame oil from Eden Foods. Don’t forget to add an extra nuttiness with toasted sesame seeds.

Cancel your plans, call out sick, and find some excuse to stay home, you really need to make this!!
