Buffalo Chicken Avocado ‘Toast’

Avocado toast is one of my absolute favorite dishes. I think avocado is heavenly, and when spread over toast, it’s the perfect canvas for creativity!

So, when at the grocery store, I usually pick up an avocado or two without a clear plan for how to use them (I just know I will…b/c avocados.)

In a spur of the moment decision, I decided to make Avocado ‘toast’ with a little twist. I don’t love toast (call me crazy.) I can do without the starchy carbs of bread and pasta. I don’t love the way they make me feel bloated after eating them, and I always end up being hungry about an hour later. Therefore, I opted to use lightly salted Quakers Rice Cakes as a base for my creation.

I cut my avocado in half, and spread half on the rice cake as a base. I sliced the other half to use as a topping (again…b/c avocado.) Then I topped it with whatever I had sitting around in my apartment. Since I’m relatively busy during the week, I like to make food that takes little effort and will keep well in the fridge – perfect for the “grab and go” nature of my eating habits over the past two months. The night before, I had made buffalo pulled chicken in my crockpot (crockpots save lives) because I knew it would come in handy for lunches and dinners throughout the week. I also hardboiled eggs with the same intent.
