I used asian ingredients to make this hipster treat and wanted to give it an Asiani name so I called it Sakura avocado toast to not call it something as inappropriate as samurai toast. But then realized that they are both just as bad. So a touch of edible cultural appropriation here. Knowing is half the battle. No Sakuras (cherry blossoms) where harmed in the making of this toast .

Ingredients:

  • Bread
  • Avocados
  • Radishes sliced
  • Black sesame seeds
  • Rice wine vinegar
  • Sesame oil

Directions:

Toast the bread
Scoop out the avocado from its shell, place it in a plate add a splash of the vinegar, a sprinkling of salt and smooch with a fork.
Spread this mixture onto the toasted bread.
Sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
Slice the radishes really thin, offset the slices in a row. Roll up like a flower and scatter over the avocados so it looks like sakura tree in April (cherry blossom tree).
Drizzle a few drops of sesame oil over the top and enjoy your edible appropriation. If you want to get really fancy put your sesame oil in a spray bottle and sprits a little on the top of everything.

Slice the radishes as thin as possible. Use a mandolin if necessary. Offset the slices in a row and roll them up into a flower.
