    What is it about crunchy toasted bread that gets me every time?! Ever since being pregnant, my love for bread has gone from 0 to 100 in what feels like overnight. I’m constantly craving carbs, fats and protein (and obv sweets) but heavy on the carbs.

    Needless to say I have been getting pretty creative with my toast ideas when I’m up for it. This Summer Bruschetta Toast with Cashew Green Pesto is my latest favorite and it makes for an easy lunch, appetizer for guests, anything! The recipe is entirely plant-based, gluten-free and anything pesto entices me cause that flavaaaa!

    To make the pesto plant-based, I used raw cashews, garlic, basil leaves, avocado oil and Organic Girl’s new REBEL Greens. The REBEL Greens are baby bok choy leaves, which are set to be even more nutritious than baby kale. It’s like the forgotten child of the greens fam. I find them at the local organic store here in Hoboken but any retailer with Organic Girl greens should carry it! I mixed with a bit of basil too because there is nothing like some basil flavoring in pesto.

    Spread some of the pesto on top of the toast with a little tomato/onion mixture with some fresh avocado. You can also add some non-dairy free cheese or feta or goat’s cheese. I have done them all and each equally delicious.

    As soon as you take your first bite of the toast. You’ll know why I have been making this on repeat. I cannot wait to hear what you guys think!
