Yeah, yeah, almond butter toast. What else is new? Allow me to introduce you to the genius add-on of Indian cuisine’s pungent, MSG-like spice blend, chaat masala, which turns an ordinary breakfast into an umami-filled salt-and-spice bomb that tastes like the most craveable nut mix in toast form. Just be doubly sure that you’re using *unsalted* almond butter, as the chaat masala is already salted. Tip: Turn this into an appetizer—try the chaat masala–almond butter combo on rye crackers.

  1. Toast the bread to the desired toastiness. Spread the almond butter over the bread, then evenly sprinkle the chaat masala over the top, adding more to taste.
