Ingredients for mushroom avocado toast recipe
Baby bella mushrooms
I used these simple and easy ingredients with great taste and texture for crispy mushroom toast which is my favorite these days.
Bread – any bread of your choice works here. However, I prefer ancient whole grains bread because its healthier and has more fiber.
Mushrooms – I personally got the ready to use sliced baby bella mushrooms for this recipe. However, sliced shitake would also work here or white mushrooms are also fine for this recipe.
Olive oil – it’s the healthiest fat that I like but vegan butter to sauté mushrooms also tastes really good.
Herbs – I would highly recommend using fresh herbs here for the perfect taste of this vegan mushroom avocado toast.
Jalapeno – this brings a nice flavor without making it too spicy. However, you may skip this if making for kids.

How to make Mushroom Avocado Toast
Step 1: prepare mushroom
Firstly, I heated oil in a nonstick pan and tossed in sliced mushrooms. I sautéed for few min and then let them cook covered at medium flame for 2-3 minutes. Then, I removed the lid and tossed them again scraping from the bottom. I let them cook until the they released its liquid and dried up and became brown in color.
Secondly, I added thyme and the spices to it and mixed again.
Next, I folded in coconut milk to it.
Lastly, I turned it off the moment the liquid was absorbed. I kept it aside.
Step 2: mashed avocado
Firstly, I scooped avocado from its skin and discarded its seed. Then, I added all its ingredients in the mixing bowl.
Secondly, with the help of a fork, I smashed it and mixed it well.
Step 3: how to assemble
Firstly, I toasted the bread slices and kept them on the serving plates.
Secondly, I slathered creamy avocado on each slice and then topped them generously with sautéed mushrooms.
Lastly, I garnished them with hemp seeds and drizzled few drops of lemon juice.
My family loved this healthy mushroom and avocado toast breakfast and it was a nice change from regular pancake and waffles.
- While cooking mushrooms make sure to let it cook covered on high-medium flame for its liquid to dry up before adding the seasonings.
- Make avocado filling once mushrooms are ready or else it will start to oxidize and change in color.
- It is important to start topping up the toast as soon as they are toasted or else, they will start getting soggy.
Yes, you can make mushroom filling ahead of time and keep it at room temperature for few hours. When ready just warm up in the pan to make it fresh and warm again.
Yes! All the ingredients I have used here is healthy and nutritious. Depending on your taste if you choose whole grain bread then this becomes a great avocado toast breakfast.
I like to cook them in olive oil because its healthier. However, mushrooms sautéed in vegan butter has a great taste too. Do not sauté them continuously and let them cook on their own at medium flame. I like to cover for speedy cooking. They release their own juice and then dry up, that is when they change their color to brownish. You must add salt and other seasoning after they change their color for the best results.
