Slice and mash about 1/4 to 1/2 of an avocado. Spread it on a slice of toast. Top with Everything But the Bagel Seasoning (crushed red pepper or chili powder would taste great too if you like spice!). Finish it off with a few pinches of milled flaxseed.

If you’re a fan of milled flaxseed, you probably know about its ability to absorb liquid. This works well to make vegan flax eggs and works to help bind recipes such as burgers or meatballs (try these salmon patties).

This also works to absorb the excess liquid that rises to the top of a jar of natural peanut butter. Learn more and get the recipe here.

4. Creamy Pesto Spread
