Sriracha Avocado Heirloom Tomato Toast
Sriracha has been in the culinary spotlight for many years, what began as a trend has now grown into a culinary cult following. If you are one of the few that has not had the pleasure of this uniquely complex condiment, now is the perfect time to try it in powdered form. Sriracha is a product of Thailand and consists of vinegar, chilies, garlic, sugar and salt. The unique flavor is comparable to no other sauce or condiment on the market. I am particularly in love with sriracha on homemade macaroni and cheese; just thought of it is making my stomach growl!
The avocado has been a staple in southwestern and Californian cuisine for many years but in the past few year’s aggressive marketing has catapulted the avocado into the mainstream. Nutritionally sound and a wonderful source of good fat and protein the avocado is the perfect addition to just about anything!
Avocado toast has been in the culinary spotlight for a few years now, gaining popularity not only because of its simplicity but also because of the easy accessibility that many of us have to avocados. In three to four ingredients you can have a filling, nutrient-rich snack or add a fried/poached egg if extra protein is needed. The extra spice and kick that sriracha powder provides, takes this dish from good to spectacular.
You may be wondering why sriracha powder over bottled form? The powder gives you the flexibility of portability, ease of use and a better control over the amount of heat going into your recipes. It also will not change the consistency of your dish when that is a consideration in preparation and recipe development.
