Vegan Avocado Nori Crostini

Take your morning avocado toast to the next level with the addition of nori, walnuts, and chia seeds.

Makes 16 crostini

What You Need:

2 nori sheets
1/2 cup mashed avocado (about 1 large)
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
4 slices sprouted-grain bread
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1/4 cup chopped raw walnuts

What You Do:

1. Into a wide bowl, crumble sheets of nori into small flakes.

2. In a small mixing bowl, combine avocado, lemon juice, and sea salt, and mix well. Add half of the crushed nori flakes and fold gently into mixture.

3. Toast bread in a toaster or oven broiler for 1 to 2 minutes on each side, until golden. Lightly brush each slice of toast with coconut oil and cut into quarters. Spread each quarter with a spoonful of avocado mixture, then sprinkle with chia seeds, remaining nori flakes, and walnuts. Plate and serve.
