Shamrock avocado on toast - vegan St. Patrick's day brunch

I was given some avocados recently and I thought, what can I do with them that's not just simple avocado on toast. And with St Patrick's day coming up I thought because of their colour they are perfect for the celebrations. Avocado on toast was a contender but I wanted to make it extra special and fun. So I came up with the idea of using sliced green peppers as a shamrock mould, scooped mashed avocado in it and accentuated the leaves by sprinkling ground pistachios on it.


St. Patrick's day brunch can come! Also check out my other recipes on my blog, I have quite a few green recipes on here.

Shamrock avocado on toast - vegan St. Patrick's day brunch


If you don't have avocados you can also sprinkle some nutritional yeast on top. It tastes delicious!



This is the perfect brunch idea for St. Patrick's day. Your friends will love it.



Mashed avocado is always a classic for brunch. The creaminess of the avocado is the perfect sandwich topping.

Slice 1 green bell pepper (roughly 5mm thick) so you get a shamrock shape. Cut off the white bits on the inside. This is your mould.


Then cut an avocado in half. Deseed it and scoop out the flesh into a bowl. Add some lemon juice and salt to taste to it. You can also add fresh garlic as well. then mash it up until it's more or less smooth.


Cut a slice of bread and place the bell pepper slice on it. Then fill it with the mashed avocado. Even it out so you get a nice flat shamrock shape.


Add some pistachios to a blender cup and blend to crush them. Using a sheet of paper to create sharpe edges, sprinkle the pistachios on the shamrock crossways to accentuate the leaves.


Cut off a small piece of the green bell pepper and add it to the bread to create a stem. Done! Enjoy!


And happy St. Patrick's Day! I hope you have amazing celebrations.
