Avocado & Pea Smash on Toast


Avocado Smash

Avocado & Pea Smash on Toast with Lemon Juice and Chilli (optional) 

A delicious, nourishing and super easy breakfast, lunch or snack idea. Avocado’s are a great source of healthy monounsaturated fat, they contain more potassium than a banana and are a good source of fibre. Avocado’s are also a rich in antioxidants, the B Vitamins – Folate, B5 & B6, plus Vitamins C, E & K. The peas help add protein and are also a good source of fibre, Vitamins B, C & K, zinc and iron.

I like to add salt, pepper and a sprinkling of chilli flakes to mine to add extra flavour. You can also sprinkle other herbs and spices on top depending upon your flavour preference.

Avocado Smash

 

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen peas (I use frozen)
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Optional a sprinkling of chilli flakes
  • 4 slices of toast (I use gluten free sourdough)

Avocado Toast

Directions

  1. Cut the ripe avocado in half, peel it and then slice lengthways and cross ways into small squarish chunks and add to a bowl.
  2. Pour boiling water over the peas (if using frozen) to allow them to thaw then drain the water.
  3. Add the olive oil and lemon juice to the peas and smash them a little.
  4. Add the pea mixture to the avocado and mix until evenly combined. You can smash the mixture a little further to get the consistency you desire.
  5. Add salt, pepper and chilli if using and layer the avocado smash onto the four slices of toast.
  6. Enjoy!
