Avocado Toast: An Evolution

Sure, avocado toast is getting a bad rep from all of the Instagrammable toppings and brunching ladies who can’t help but snap 300 overhead shots before everyone is allowed to take a bite. But what’s not to love about arguably the most delicious fruit (yes, avocados are technically fruits), mashed with toppings and loaded on top of crispy toast? Instead of focusing on the “basic” nature of this food, let’s have a look at the remarkable evolution of avocado toast and just how wild this dish got its start.

It all started with four triangles and some chili flakes…

Then people began to get fancy with more spices (like pepper), a squeeze of lemon, and some sprouts…

And then the most amazing thing happened — someone #PutAnEggOnIt.

Not just a poached egg, but all *kinds* of eggs…

Some even started topping it with meat!

And then things got even crazier. Cuisines adapted the avocado toast, like this Mexican style here…

Or this Mediterranean style here…

And then we departed from cuisines and moved into a much stronger creative force…

And everything started combining into one massive tower of avocado greatness…

And ended up as a singular piece of art (with edible flowers of course).

In conclusion, avocado toast went from a simple breakfast meal to a stunning (and still delicious) work of art — so can we blame the Instagrammers of today for making it their muse?
