As a college student, you may often find yourself staring into the empty shelves of your fridge for weeks on end. Sometimes, finding the time to get groceries is hard; with work, classes, clubs, and having a life, when it comes to food, simplicity is usually better. Here is the perfect, easy, quick, and simple toast recipe for those days when you have enough food to feed you for the next five hours. 

Serving size: one 

Prep + cook time: 5 minutes 


1 slice of toast of choice (I used sourdough) 

1 medium-sized tomato or 1 handful of baby tomatoes (whatever is on hand)

2 Slices of Mozzarella Cheese (optional)

Extra virgin olive oil 

Sea Salt to taste 


Trader Joe’s Mushroom Umami Seasoning (optional)

Other Seasonings of choice 


Begin by toasting your bread in a toaster until it becomes golden/ light brown. Place toast onto a plate and coat the bread with olive oil. 

(OPTIONAL STEP) Place two slices of mozzarella cheese on top of olive oil. 

Slice tomato, and place onto toast. Drizzle another layer of olive oil over the tomatoes, then add salt, pepper, and any additional seasonings desired to taste. 

Dig in and enjoy your simple but delicious “gourmet” toast.
