Delicious Open Faced Toasts 4 Ways

Jan 20, 2022

I must admit, I’m a sucker for toasts. And not just any toast— I want them to have flair. You know what I’m talking about too. A loaded avocado or ricotta toast is to die for. Today I’m sharing these recipes to commemorate our shared love of open faced toasts 4 ways.

These 4 open faced toasts are unique and surprisingly tasty. Perfect for sharing with friends or a quick snack.

Open faced toasts on multi-seeded bread with various toppings, including hummus with lemon and dill, pink goat cheese, berry compote, and pesto.

Before you start, you’ve got to pick a fanatic bread to be the base of your toast. A sourdough is always a great choice, but my personal favorite for these open faced toasts is a hearty whole grains and seeds bread. Especially if you lightly toast it in a pan with a little ghee… oh my god.

Let’s get down to the nitty gritty…. 4 recipes for open faced toasts!

Creamy Avocado Pesto Toast with Spaghetti Squash

— 2 TBSP Creamy Avocado Pesto from this previous blog post!

— 1/4 Cup Roasted Spaghetti Squash (If you’ve never roasted a squash, its easy. Halve it, scoop out seeds, lightly rub with Grapeseed oil, and roast in the oven face down for 20-30 minutes at 400F. Shred out with a fork.)

— Fresh Basil

Tangy Yogurt and Fruits

— 2 TBSP Tangy Greek Yogurt

— 1/4 of a Pear, thinly sliced

— Fresh Blueberry Compote (Check out this recipe for my blueberry compote, or use a quality blueberry jelly with no added sugar)

Beet & Goat Cheese Open Faced Toast

— 2 TBSP Goat Cheese blended with 2 tsp fresh beet juice (or 1 tsp beet root powder and a touch of honey)

— 1 Fig Halved

— Fresh Amaranth Leaf, finely chiffonaded, for garnish

I love this recipe in particular because the flavors are unexpected. The sweet and tangy goat cheese blends perfectly with the earthy beet root, the figs add a fresh and sweet element, and the amaranth garnish is lightly astringent. Its absolutely the perfect open faced toast!
