Avocado toast is very much still a relevant trend, but if you don’t want to be too #basic Bowl & Blade offers a variety of styles to choose from. Of course, this fast-casual spot in Park Slope, Brooklyn, has the traditional avocado toast, however, if you’re trying to change it up you can add poke to your toast or order the gluten free option – which is served over a falafel waffle. Below we’ve included the recipe and instructions on how to make your own gluten free avocado toast… enjoy! —Staff Member
