This is one of simplest, quickest and most scrumptious breakfast, lunch or light meal that you can have in your repertoire and until the other day I really didn’t think a recipe or instructions were required.
I was having lunch with a friend who loves good food, but doesn’t cook – not that any cooking is required here, unless using the
toaster is considered cooking – and she was raving about the
avocado and feta on toast at this café and when I responded “But surely you would make this for yourself at home?” she looked at me blankly and said “How?”
As this is something I eat probably at least once a week, I was fairly astounded that someone would fork out $12.95 for something that even when using the very best ingredients and when avocados are at their most expensive (which is not now) costs around $3 a serve!
Smashed Avocado & Feta Toast
There are lots of variations on this: use whatever bread you like – I use
locally baked sourdough; change the herbs depending on what you have available – usually I use coriander, because I nearly always have it, but it is equally as good with parsley, mint or dill; and include the hot sauce, if you like, either in the avocado mix or drizzled on top.
1 medium to large ripe avocado
¼ cup crumbled feta
squeeze lemon juice
1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
hot sauce of your choice, to taste (optional)
2 thick slices bread of your choice, toasted
1 Place avocado flesh, feta, lemon juice and coriander in a bowl and roughly mash.
2 Add hot sauce to taste, if using, and mix to combine.
3 Pile avocado mixture onto toast and serve.
Happy cooking and eating.
