It’s weird when toast starts making headlines, but that’s where we are right now. Do a search for avocado toast. Trust me, you will be bowled over by the number of healthy minded folks that have tossed butter and jelly out the window, and are now slathering avocados on their morning bread. I think it’s the Oprah factor. I hear she likes it.

Being the fashion maven that I am (as I sit here in my son’s old discarded t-shirt and a pair of cheap, plastic cheaters from Walgreens) I thought I would whip up my own avocado toast offering. The idea of adding roasted garlic popped into my head, and so I gave it a try. Thank you Oprah. I’m now a believer too!

Roasted Garlic

Roasted Garlic has a sweet flavor and is easy to make.

Roasting garlic is a breeze, and what’s nice is that you can use it now and later. In other words, roast a head of garlic, use a few cloves on your avocado toast, and then add the rest to a salad dressing, mashed potatoes, or a pasta sauce. Roasted garlic is sweet, so you won’t offend anyone at the breakfast table, or in your morning meeting. Totally good-bye kiss friendly.
