We’d love to pretend we’re above obsessing over every food trend that flashes across our internet and smartphone screens, but the truth is that these trends—think matcha-flavored anything—inexplicably make us happy, particularly if, for reasons some psychologist somewhere is probably trying to unpack, they involve avocado. First, we had avocado toast, which is still one of our favorite things to eat ever, especially when served alongside soft scrambled eggs. Then, we got sweet potato toast and cauliflower avocado toast going, which were basically the same thing as avocado toast but with vegetables where the bread used to be, because gluten. Now, it looks as though something called pokecado toast—that’s poke plus avocado toast, for those of you also suffering from the “it’s only Tuesday”s like we are—is poised to become the next big thing, according to our friends at Brit + Co, who’ve tapped eatery Pokeatery for a recipe.
And while we would argue that part of the beauty of avocado toast in its initial, purest form is the ease with which it can be made, we can’t argue with how delicious this more complicated version involving a raw fish mixture appears. If you can’t be bothered to whip up a batch of poke in your own kitchen, remember you can always buy it for, like, $100 per ounce at Whole Foods or—what we’ll probably do—sub in a can of $0.99 tuna and call it a day.
In the meantime, we’ll be googling “things that go with avocado” in order to pre-empt the next trend and get all the clicks. We’re thinking chocolate avocado pudding toast could be a thing? You heard it here first, and below is a recipe to get you started (hint: Slather this on toast, et voila!).
