Ethiopian-Style Avocado Toast

What’s better than avocado toast? Easy - Avocado toast with Niter Kibbeh, Berbere, and Ayeb. We took the food trend of the century, added some spiced butter, gave it a kick, and topped it with freshly-made cheese, and it is all the better for it. Perfect for: A quick breakfast before you run off to work! Cutting up and serving as snacks/apps at your next dinner party! 


3-4 slices of good quality sourdough or rye bread
1 tablespoons Niter Kibbeh
1 ripe avocado, pitted
1 tsp Berbere (or Mitmita if you want extra spicy)
Ayeb Ethiopian Cheese (optional)
Sea salt to taste


If you would like to add cheese, make the Ayeb.

Halve the avocado and discard its pit. Slice or mash the avocado. 


  1. Spread the Niter Kibbeh on both sides of each of the slices of bread.
  2. Place the buttered bread on a hot skillet and fry on each side until browned and crispy, about 3-4 minutes on each side (don't be afraid of a little char!) 
  3. Remove the toast from the pan, and spread as much or as little avocado onto the toast. 
  4. Sprinkle with Berbere, Ayeb cheese, flakey sea salt, and enjoy!

Serves: 2 | Prep time:  2-40 minutes | Cooking time: 5 minutes
