If you live in the Bay Area and are a food nerdist like me, you may have heard about the toast trend that’s beginning to take over our 7×7 city. People will pay upward of $5 for toast in San Francisco, which to many might seem outrageous. Have we already run the course of every food craze imaginable, so all that’s left is toast?
I like good bread; I have stood in line for Acme in Berkeley, which to me is the pinnacle of artisan bread. I have yet to brave the line at Tartine Bakery for the 5:00 p.m. bead, but it’s on my list. But toast? I’m just not sure about this one…until I tried peanut butter Sriracha toast. Sounds like an odd combo, yes? But it works.
In protest of $5 toast, make your own. If you don’t live in the Bay Area, start your own local toast trend with this recipe.
Peanut Butter Sriracha Toast
1. Spread peanut butter on a slice of toast.
2. Top with Sriracha, sliced green onions and cilantro leaves. If you want to keep it simple, forgo the green onions and cilantro. It’s great with just peanut butter and Sriracha.
3. Optional, finish with lime juice and sea salt.
