Avocado Toast with Lemon Balsamic Arugula
with sweet potato fries / fruit parfaits

Active: 30 min Total: 30 min
There's always room for avocado toast in the heat of summer, but we couldn't resist including the same side used in the original version of this meal - baked fries (sweet potato fries are great here) with ketchup. Berry parfaits can give the meal a patriotic touch if you use red and blue berries layered with plain yogurt.

Very good and simple! Loved the arugula and vinaigrette. A little more effort than I usually put into avocado toast :) so it was nice to have for dinner.

Enjoyed this more than I expected with the portobello and arugula. Added some garlic and onion powder and red pepper flakes to the ground beef for extra flavor. LOVED the fruit salad with honey and yogurt!

We caramelised some onions with patties otherwise it would've been just the taste of meat. We used curry ketchup more than the ketchup and sprinkled some cajun seasoning on our fries (we like spice lol). Skipped the parfait.

Surprisingly delicious! Avocado toast was really good, the arugula, radish, and pepitas went with the avocado toast so well. The parfaits were good too! I would agree, it doesn't feel quite filling enough for a dinner, but definitely for a lunch.
