Avocado Tomato Toast (vegan + easy to make)
My avocado tomato toast is different than all other avocado toasts because it’s made with mashed seasoned avocado and vegan chipotle mayo. It has vegan refried beans and plump juicy tomatoes on it. It’s great for breakfast or lunch. It’s perfect for all of the avocado lovers of the world. ♥︎
While we’re enjoying a slice of avocado tomato toast, I have to tell you about CRABPOCOLYPSE 2015!
You read that right. Crabpocalypse. It is the name I have given to the mass exodus of crabs that happen to invade our neighborhood once a year.
I live on the east coast of South Florida. The St. Lucie river runs behind my neighborhood. We can easily access the river via a trail through the preserve area that surrounds our neighborhood. Living within a preserve area that’s located near a river brings a variety of little critters into our neighborhood and our yard. Gopher turtles, raccoons, opossums, armadillo and yes, even blue land crabs have made their appearance in our yard. During the month of August, hundreds if not thousands of blue land crabs invade our local roads and neighborhoods, all in an attempt to make it to the land of blue crab mating aka blue crab baby making.
For some reason, the little crabs love our yard. Often making their appearances during the early evening hours, they have been spotted climbing up our screen door, attempting to break into our house and trying to hitch rides to other towns. One little crab did manage to hitch a ride within the hood of my car from Stuart all the way to Palm Beach Gardens. 25 miles, way to go, little crabby.
I enjoy watching the little crabs but what I don’t enjoy is that they are often run over cars. It makes me sad and I do not like to witness this tragic event. If I’m able to catch a crab, I will pick it up and move it out of the road and into the grass. If I’m unable to catch it, I run after it, chasing it away into the grass. All while it’s little crab claws are trying to attack me. Silly little crabs.
One crab dug a little crab hole in the flower bed outside of my front porch. A friend of mine helped me name him – Christopher Crab. Christopher Crab was very social and enjoyed having parties. One time, there were 4 crabs hanging out in his little crab hole!
By the end of September, the crabs are gone…until the next year.
Avocado Tomato Toast
This avocado tomato toast may be enjoyed for breakfast or lunch. They’re as simple as toasting some bread, spreading a little vegan refried bean and mashed avocado, topping a little tomato and drizzling a little vegan mayo. Toast, spread, top, drizzle.

Dear Julie, you really kicked this up! I love the bold flavor…I haven’t had breakfast yet, but I could chow down on this morning, noon or night. Sounds so good! xo, Catherine
Thank you, Catherine!
This is packed with flavors, I love it!! And my garden is exploding with tomatoes, so the timing is perfect :)
Thank you, Aimee! I love that your garden is producing a ton of tomatoes. <3
I love how you combined avocado and refried beans on toast! Such a great twist and I seriously can’t get enough tomatoes right now :)
Thank you, Sharon!
Love it. Love it. This is the perfect type of breakfast for me. Love the paprika addition!

This is the best avocado toast I’ve ever seen! Love the chipotle mayo! And refried beans-just perfect! Pinned!
Aww thank you, Mira!
LOVE these scrumptious toasty bites of avocado heaven, Julie! Your addition of chipotle mayonnaise AND refried beans have my heart going pitter-patter! Seriously these are perfect for ANYTIME of the day! I love your crab-a-palooza story! Too funny, but you are sooo kind for making them homes and making sure they don’t get run over (so.sad… who would do such a thing as to run over an innocent and delicious little crabby??) Anyways, this toast is totally calling my name for lunch today! Pinned! Cheers to you and all your little crab friends! <3
Aww thank you, Cheyanne! Hope you enjoy the toast!
Sad to say, I have not seen any crabs since last week. I think they have moved on. Boo.
YUM! These look so light and delicious! A perfect lunch idea. I wish I lived in South Florida!
Thanks Chrissa! It’s pretty nice down here. Hot but nice. :)
I love avocado toast, and this takes it to a whole new level! Yum! I want to eat this for lunch. PS I want to see the little crabs running away from you into the grass, hilarious :)
LOL! The little crabs are quite amusing! I think they are gone now as I haven’t seen any since last week. Boo. Maybe they will make another appearance before the season is over! :)
Avocados + refried beans are one of my favorite food combos. So full of flavor and so satisfying!!
It’s a great combo, isn’t it?! Thank you so much for stopping by. Hope you are having a great weekend. :)
