I LOVE avocado toast. It’s a favorite for breakfast or lunch. So Imagine how happy I was when a beautiful organic cafe opened in my neck of the woods that makes a fabulous avocado toast with a unique touch all their own. And then to make my life even better The Daily Harvest agreed to share their recipe for Kale Avocado Toast with my readers. This is a good day. Photo credit lmariephoto.com

The Daily Harvest:
We don’t live in a small town, but it’s not huge. When a new restaurant does open, it’s usually a chain. When The Daily Harvest opened their doors it quickly became my favorite stop for a healthy lunch! It’s very rare we get a unique eatery here in the Santa Clarita Valley, much less an organic one that features a seasonal menu, fresh pressed juices, amazing breakfasts, soups, wraps and sandwiches, not to mention paleo, vegan and gluten free options. Just look at the color in these meals! The juices and pressed almond milk are the best I’ve tasted. You can check out The Daily Harvest menu here.

The Daily Harvest Kale Avocado Toast!
This hearty artisan bread is toasted, then topped with avocado mash, kale sautéed in garlic, and finished with bright pink pickled cabbage. Pickled cabbage is very easy to make and adds flavor and color to salads and sandwiches. Prettiest avocado toast I have ever seen!
The Recipe: Kale Avocado Toast
- Pickled Cabbage Slaw: Make ahead
- ¼ red cabbage (super thinly sliced, I use a mandolin)
- ¼ green cabbage, again, super thinly sliced
- ¼ of a red onion, thinly sliced
- ½ red winde vinegar
- ¼ cup olive oil
- a generous pinch sea salt
- ½ tsp black pepper
- The Toast:
- 4 pieces of your favorite artisan bread
- 2 cups kale, ribs removed and chopped
- ½ a clove of garlic, minced finely
- 2 large ripe avocados, peeled and mashed
- 1-2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- pinch sea salt
- The Pickled Cabbage:
- Make ahead by tossing everything together and then allowing to sit in the fridge at least overnight. The longer it sits the better it tastes!
- Wash and dry kale. Remove center ribs from stalks. Discard ribs, chop leaves. Prep garlic.
- Set a pan on medium heat. Add a little butter or olive oil and saute kale and garlic for 2-3 minutes. While kale cooks, prepare avocado and pop bread in the toaster.
- With a fork, mash avocado, lemon juice and sea salt until smooth.
- Spread toast with avocado mash, top with kale and pickled cabbage! Serve.
