This gorgeous recipe comes from Rocco DiSpirito’s latest cookbook, which is set for publication this fall. Avocado toast doesn’t take much work to prep, and the results are always Insta-worthy. Also: There’s plenty of protein in that salmon, and healthy fats in the avocado.

  • ¾ cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 avocados
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 8 oz. smoked salmon
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped chives


  1. Coat two coffee mugs with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, combine buckwheat flour, baking powder, salt, and eggs with a fork.
  3. Divide the mixture evenly between the mugs and microwave until a toothpick inserted in a bread comes out clean, about 90 seconds. Turn the bread out and slice into 8 rounds total.
  4. Mash together the avocados and lemon juice, leaving some chunks in the avocado. Spread on the toast rounds.
  5. Top the avocado with the salmon and chives.
