Roasted Garlic Avocado Toast + Hemp Seeds & Red Chili Flakes

Roasted Garlic Avocado Toasts + Hemp Seeds & Red Chili Flakes – THE avocado toast to end all avocado toasts. (Vegan & GF) | RECIPE at

THE avocado toast to end all avocado toasts.

It starts with perfectly crisp and crunchy toasted sourdough slices (unless your toaster is crap like mine, then you get what you get) that are slathered with roasted garlic and then layered with avocado. Finally, a sprinkle of hemp seeds, red chili flakes, and a little salt and pepper to achieve the greatest avocado toast. EVER.

So basically, what have we learned already? That we’ve all been doing avocado toast wrong! And that we have to make up for lost time and consume as much avocado toast as we can now. Which if you’ve ever even peeked at social media, Instagram in particular, you might think that’s all people eat anyway. Avocado toast everywhere.

Okay, truth time, I’ve actually been eating my avo toast this way without sharing it with you (unless you are following Noming on Instagram – which you should be if you aren’t because that’s where ALL the sneaky peeks happen) for quite some time now. I actually wanted to share a yummer little treat with you, coconut bites which are sort of macaroons… but I’m kind of Type A and need to make things multiple times before I can even think of putting a post together for it. All the time I see bloggers go to the store, say they are going to try and make a dish and then post it three days later. Not me, it’s like I’m feeding the Queen and have to make sure it’s legit before it can even be considered for hitting the web. So, those little bites are going for another round this week and hopefully that means they will be yours next week. Hopefully. Unless I get distracted, like I did with butternut squash on Monday. Soooo maybe… oh hell let’s just hope you get a dang recipe at the rate I work.

Well lovelies, I’m going to leave it there. This avocado toast requires nothing else than that it is the ultimate toast. But if you have a hankering for some more roasted garlic in your life, you can try yours hands at Roasted Garlic Walnut Pesto, which also made it’s way into a Mean Green Pesto Pasta that is slap yourself silly delicious. Just sayin… roasted garlic for life.

Also if you hadn’t noticed or you’re new (yay you!), I’ve done this post a smidge different. With all the content/writing mainly together and then the photos thrown together. What’s your thoughts? Do you prefer this style or the old way? Hmmmm…. love to hear what you think.  `

P.S. I have yet to open a single book from last week. Ugh. Reading… why you have to be so hard?

**Oh hey! If you make any of Noming’s recipes, be sure to snap a photo and share them on twitter or instagram with #nomingthrulife so that the rest of us Nom’ers can see them too! I mean you would only make my day and all if you did!**

    Meg this is just great – what beautiful toast! I have to giggle and agree with you – it truly does seem as though this world is fueled off of avocado toast (but a healthy world we are then!). I seriously love the combination of sourdough, chili flakes, and hemp. This will be my breakfast soon. ♥

    • Meg -

      Thanks dear friend! I swear I could post the same photo of avocado toast every day for a year and that IG account would be more popular than my actual one. People go craaazy over their avocado toast. I hope you get a little crazy over this version, and dance like no one is watching with it in hand. Because that’s what it makes me do.

  2. Kathryn @ The Scratch Artist -

    Hi Meg,
    This looks really great. You made me laugh with all of the Instagram love that Avocado gets. Same thing happened on my Instagram account. I think as soon as people see avocado in any form they just instinctively hit the heart. Frankly, I get it! I just polished off a big plate of guacamole tonight. When I made it I was thinking jeez I’m going to have so much leftover…uhhh not so much.
    P.S. Good luck with those books! Self-help always starts at the bookstore and ends when I get home and set them on the pretty book shelf :-)

    A perfect combo, Meg and I’ll patiently wait while you work your magic, thank you very much! This toast is over the top delicious with that roasted garlic! I’ve not tried it, but now I will… so basic, true, but its the prep and combo of flavors that make it special! Delicious my dear and I’m already drooling for the coconut bites! (oh – I like your old style.. but that’s just me. Do what feels right to you!)

    • Meg -

      Thanks for the feedback Traci! My mom always says “I don’t even know why you ask, you are going to do whatever you want anyway.” Which is true, lol. And I definitely go off of feel, but I’m glad to have your two cents :) And you will loooooooooove this toast. I can’t wait for you to try it!

  4. Claudia | The Brick Kitchen -

    Gaah I have got to try this roasted garlic thing on my avocado toast! Plus that little bit of heat from the chilli sounds divine. Also just wanted to say that your writing is super entertaining, I love it – feels like I am hearing you talking or something! And in answer to your last question – I really don’t know what I prefer, seeing as I am trying to figure out the same thing for my blog – photos together or split around words? Still unsure. But maybe that means it doesn’t really matter? Sorry, so unhelpful over here! :)

    • Meg -

      Oh Claudia you ABSOLUTELY have to try it!! And thank you sooo sooo much, you are so sweet! I write just as I talk… sarcastically imperfect ;) And I super appreciate the feedback even if we are both lost in the same boat. I try to do everything off of feeling, and while I like the content and photos together I think I need to change up the font and sizing of things a little to accomplish the feel I’m going for. Logan will be so thrilled I want him to change everything all over again. Whoops! Thanks love!

  5. Emily | Sage Recipes -

    Avo toast is the best! I never thought of adding roasted garlic, but that sounds amazing. I also really like adding goat cheese for total creamy overload, but it’s so good! Can’t wait for the coconut bites – thanks for being so thorough in your recipe testing (I think many bloggers overlook recipe testing)! :)

    • Meg -

      Damn right it’s the best ;) I love to add Kite Hill’s artisan cheese on my toast too! Which I’d say is an equivalent to goat cheese, so right on the money with that idea Emily! And thanks for the recipe testing support. It sure is a pain, but I’d hate to make something once and think it will turn out that way each and every time for someone else. I cannot imagine how cookbook authors do it. I’d be in the looney bin from all the testing I would force myself to do.

    • Meg -

      Thanks friend! Love the use of lemon juice to brighten it up! I don’t know what I was doing with my life before hemp seeds, I LOVE to sprinkle them on anything and everything I can :)

  6. Sarah -

    I think I’ve been living under a rock because I’ve never actually put avocado on toast. And I recently learned how to roast garlic. And I’ve also never tried hemp seeds but they sound intriguing. Basically…ima make this. Thank you!!

    • Meg -

      Oh Sarah. Well welcome to the avocado toast light :) Glad you made it – and that you just learned how to roast garlic, perfect timing! Hemp seeds are perfect little protein and nutrient dense seeds. They really don’t have much of taste when sprinkled on foods, so they are great to throw on anything and everything to give it a little boost. I love it on toast, pasta, sprinkled on smoothie bowls, etc. So I hope you give them a try, they are definitely a fav of mine. AND I hope you love your first go with avocado toast… there’s kind of reason it’s “all the rage.” Thanks Sarah!

  7. Dearna @tohercore -

    “Avocado toast – you’ve been doing it wrong!” Haha! I love that people are still coming up with new ways to do what is one of the simplest, delicious food out there. The roasted garlic sounds amazing, I cant wait to add it to my next avocado toast! x

    • Meg -

      Hehe ;) It is kind of crazy to think of the all the ways people still keeping revolutionizing the basic avocado toast. I can’t complain. Can’t wait for you to try it Dearna – you’ll love it!

  8. Miyanna -

    I made these this Morning and I must say that they are so delicious and flavorful!! I used garlic powder but I’ll be sure to roast some garlic before hand next time. I just read the rest of the blog after savouring the entire dish and forgot to take pictures. Lol
    Looking forward to more recipes.

    • Meg -

      Yay – so happy you loved it Miyanna! And the roasted garlic will make it a whole new toast when you have a chance to make it. So you have even more deliciousness to look forward to. Thanks for stopping by!
