Millennials have gotten a bad rep this decade for “ruining” multiple industries and institutions. They have stopped buying diamond engagement rings, prefer online shopping to brick-and-mortar experiences, and are getting married later and at a diminished rate.

If Australian millionaire Tim Gurner is to be believed, our preference for avocado toast is the root cause of our inability to afford housing. “When I was trying to buy my first home, I wasn’t buying smashed avocado for $19 and four coffees at $4 each,” he told 60 Minutes. Cue a hilarious Internet backlash on social media, with millennials sardonically weighing in with pithy comments like, “Crap. Shouldn’t have bought that avocado last week. Now I can’t buy a house.” It seems like there’s nothing we haven’t negatively impacted, if media reports and multi-millionaires are to be believed.

Maybe it’s “basic”, but avocado toast is delicious, filling, and relatively inexpensive – sorry, Gurner. As such, it has become a staple of many diets and a welcome sight on any menu. However, as our frequency of consuming it has grown, we’ve found ourselves yearning for even more easy, toast-related options. Surely there’s more to life?

In the list below, you’ll find a range of delicious, healthy toppings that go beyond the ‘cado. Expand your horizons by getting familiar with some of the best alternatives to avocado toast that we could find.

Sauteed Mushrooms and Truffle Salt Crostini

This recipe is a little more time consuming, so it’s a great option for dinner. Also, the amazing earthiness of truffle salt will make it all worth it. As an added bonus and boost of protein, try this recipe with a fried egg on top, and swap the truffle salt for truffle tapenade.
