With rumors of a pending avocado shortage looming, we’re craving the creamy green fruit more than ever.

Luckily a “guacapocalypse” is a long shot, so we’ll be making plenty of the avocado-topped flatbread that supermodel Karlie Kloss recently posted to Instagram.

“Snack attack! I love adding avocado and chili flakes to any dish,” she wrote.

We agree! And so do some other stunning starlets: Avocado toast is also a favorite snack of fellow beauties Ivanka Trump and Gwyneth Paltrow (whose recipe in It’s All Good also calls for a sprinkling of crushed red pepper flakes).

But Kloss’ version is so loaded with good-for-you ingredients that the “flatbread” is actually a grain-free blend of shredded cauliflower, carrots and kale — the perfect guilt-free lunch (which means you’ll still have room for her Karlie’s Kookies for dessert).

Below, Kloss shares her recipe with PEOPLE. Add whatever colorful toppings you fancy, and it’s a model meal.

Grain-Free Cauliflower, Carrot and Kale Flatbread

1 head cauliflower, shredded
1 cup shredded kale
1 cup shredded carrot
1 tsp. kosher salt
4 tbsp. coconut flour
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp. dried oregano
5 egg whites

1 cup baby portabella mushrooms
1 green bell pepper, sliced
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 yellow or red onion, diced
5 slices avocado
Red pepper flakes, to taste
1 cup cauliflower, chopped
Hummus, to taste

1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

2. In a large bowl, mix cauliflower, kale and carrots. Sprinkle with salt and let sit for 15 minutes.

3. After 15 minutes, squeeze out excess water from the veggie mix. Add coconut flour, eggs and oregano and knead mixture to form a dough.

4. Place dough on a large piece of parchment paper or non-stick cooking foil, and cover with another piece. Roll out to about ½-inch thick.

5. Keeping the parchment paper on top and bottom, move dough onto a baking sheet on the middle rack, about 20 minutes.

6. Remove the flatbread from the oven and add the toppings. Return to oven for 5-8 minutes. Serve immediately.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
