Savory & Sweet Summer Toasts Recipe

It’s high Summer, and we’re just returning to blistering LA after spending a lovely few weeks visiting friends and family in the UK. It’s reaching record heat levels here in southern California, so we plan to spend as much time poolside as we possibly can. Being English I love toast, and being from LA – I love avocado toast. So when I saw an adorable photo on Instagram of beautiful, differently colored toasts, I just had to try them for myself (and Mackenzie of course – you’re welcome babes).

These pretty toasts can be made in any combination you like, but I went for a nice balance of savory and sweet: avocado with fresh summer corn, strawberries with brie and balsamic vinegar, and almond butter with blueberry compote. Plus they’re so gorgeous, you’ll barely want to eat them (until you get the perfect Insta shot of course)! Read below for the recipes, and make sure to tag me on social if you make them so I can check them out.

Avocado & Corn
Ingredients:
-2 to 3 slices of your favorite bread (I went with a dark sprouted rye bread, which are easier to digest and lower glycemic than traditional bread making them on the healthier side)
-1 to 2 large ripe avocados
-1 can of fresh corn (drained & rinsed)
-2 to 3 tablespoons of fresh squeezed lime juice
-Cotija cheese, fresh chopped basil and salt & pepper to taste
Directions:
1. Toast the bread to your liking and open the avocado.
2. Scoop out the meat of the avocado and spread evenly on each slice of bread. Mash it with a fork onto the bread, leaving some chunks whole.
3. In a small bowl, mix the fresh corn, lime juice, salt and pepper to taste. Scoop this mixture onto each slice of bread, covering the avocado.
4. Sprinkle each slice with cotija cheese, basil, and extra lime or lemon juice to taste.

Strawberries & Brie
Ingredients:
-2 to 3 slices of bread (same or different than above – it’s also fun to mix and match!)
-Soft brie cheese
-1 package of organic strawberries (washed and sliced)
-Balsamic vinegar to taste
Directions:
1. Toast the bread. Slice the brie into small slivers (I used this log of brie, which was easier to slice into even pieces). Layer evenly on each slice of bread.
2. Layer the sliced strawberries on top of the brie, and drip balsamic vinegar over the top to your liking.

Almond & Blueberry
Ingredients:
-Bread (same as above)
-Your favorite nut butter (I used organic almond)
-About 1 cup of this blueberry compote
-Optional: edible flowers for garnish!
Directions:
1. Toast the bread and layer evenly with almond butter.
2. Follow the directions for the blueberry compote and top of almond butter with the mixture to taste.
3. Garnish with edible flowers. Enjoy!

  • I remember the first time I met Ralph Lauren. I was working at Vogue.com in London, and was flown to Moscow (yes Moscow!!) for the launch of his flagship store there. The runway show was epic: a live orchestra played, and afterwards we drank frozen vodkas shots with pickles, and ate supper at the ambassador’s home under a hundred candelabras. We danced til the sun came up. Tonight, I’m getting a sneak peek at his @skyatlanticuk documentary, #VeryRalph, which I’ve been DYING to see, and it was incredible! Catch it tomorrow on @skyatlanticuk, or on demand any time. #ad
  • #ad Friendsgiving has become a very happy tradition for me. Living in LA, all us Brits had families far away so to celebrate the holiday we would gather to cook, eat, drink, play games, and laugh for hours. I was naturally always in charge of cocktails and this year I’m making the @ketelonebotanical Botanical Spritz. So easy to make and so delicious with no sugar and no carbs- just add club soda and fresh fruit to your favourite varietal in a wine glass! Can’t wait to bring this tradition back to England this year! #PeachandOrangeBlossom #KetelBotanical #BotanicalSpritz
  • I had so much fun shopping for Honor at @ilgufo_official today- and I got to chat to the Italian heritage brand’s elegant CEO @alessandrachiavelli ... watch it all on my stories. How are Italians just always so impeccably chic!? #ad #ilgufo_official
  • Today we walked to the town square and listened to the trumpets salute our fallen soldiers, we watched the helicopters fly overhead, and we listened to the choir sing. I wish Honor could have met her brave great-grandfathers, who fought in the RAF and the army, but I shall make sure I tell her all about them, and that every year we will proudly wear our poppies. #LestWeForget #RemembranceSunday
  • Literally got my claws into him 🤣
True romance ♥️
Love you babes @mackenziehunkin
  • Writing down your dreams and goals is such a powerful way to start making them a reality - but when was the last time you took the time to do it?
