Sweet and Spicy Avocado Toast

Avocado toast is usually too good to mess with… but this recipe adapted from The Vegan Roadie, has added fun flavors to the simple dish.

On this toast we will be adding the healthful but bitter green arugula! A little too bitter by itself is calmed down with the sweetness from pineapple and a spicy surprise from sriracha!

I’ve added an optional squeeze of lime juice to the dish as that is my favorite flavor to add to avocado.
