Herb and Avocado Smash on Toast

My go-to Saturday morning breakfast. Such a simple and delicious way to start the day.

Serves: 4


2 avocados
8 slices of jalapeño, chopped into small cubes
⅛ red onion, finely diced (optional)
1 teaspoon sweet chilli sauce
large handful of coriander, leaves set aside and stalks finely diced
small handful of parsley leaves, roughly chopped
juice of half a lemon
25 grams feta, crumbled, plus extra for garnish
salt and pepper to taste
4 slices of sourdough or other good qu toast bread
good quality olive oil
Optional garnish: toasted black sesame seeds and microgreens


In a bowl, smash up your avocados with the back of a fork. Add the jalapeños, red onion, sweet chilli sauce, coriander stalks, parsley, lemon juice, salt and pepper and mix well. Add the feta and fold through, it's nice to leave little chunks of feta through the smash.  

Toast the bread and drizzle with olive oil. 

Place large heaped tablespoons of avocado smash on the toast. Garnish with feta, coriander leaves, toasted black sesame seeds and microgreens, if using.
