Zesty Brekkie – Avocado Toast

Avocado toast is a great quick healthy brekkie, brunch or even a light bite for lunch.

You need this:

  • 1 slice of lightly toasted sourdough bread
  • Olive oil
  • 1/2 ripe avocado roughly chopped
  • A wedge of lemon or lime
  • Pinch of dried chilli flakes (optional)
  • 3 tsp mixed seeds (we used a mixture of pumpkin and sunflower seeds)
  • Sea salt and cracked black pepper to season

You do this:

Place the warm slice of toast on a plate and drizzle over a generous glug of olive oil.  Put the avocado on the toast; mash it with the back of a fork.  Drizzle a little more olive oil, squeeze over the lemon or lime juice, sprinkle over the chilli flakes; season to taste and scatter over the mixed seeds.

As the seeds are protein, this will work just as well with a fried or a runny poached egg or some crispy bacon instead of the seeds.

If you’ve got some fresh coriander kicking around in your fridge or on the window sill, add a few chopped leaves.
