Units Scale
  • 4 pieces whole grain bread
  • 1/2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 lb. asparagus, trimmed roughly the length of your bread
  • 1 clove garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tsp. caraway seeds
  • 1 avocado, pitted and smashed
  • 2 cups arugula, tossed in a bit of olive oil
  • 1/4 cup toasted pepitas, or almonds, or sunflower seeds


  1. Lightly toast bread. Brush lightly with olive oil and rub with garlic cloves.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once it's hot add the asparagus, and a pinch of salt and cook for about thirty seconds. Add the garlic and caraway, and cook another thirty seconds, or until the spears are a bright green. Remove from heat.
  3. Give each piece of bread a generous slather of mashed avocado. Top that with a bit of arugula, a few asparagus spears, and a generous sprinkling of pepitas or seeds.
