I'd never eaten an avocado. Guacamole doesn't count. So when all of Instagram suddenly erupted with pictures of avocado toast, I decided it was time I joined in the fun. Here's my avocado toast recipe.

What you need

  • Avocado - 2
  • Paprika
  • Black pepper
  • Salt
  • Lemon - 1
  • Bread - 2 slices. Use multi-seed bread if you can. Much healthier

What you do

  1. Slice your avocados in half (mind the big seed in the middle, slice around it)
  2. Scoop avocado flesh out into a bowl
  3. Mash coarsely
  4. Squeeze a little lemon juice into this
  5. Sprinkle a pinch of salt
  6. Grind a pinch of black pepper
  7. Sprinkle paprika
  8. Mix it all up
  9. Toast your bread
  10. Heap a large spoon of avocado mix onto your toasts and spread
  11. Sprinkle a little more paprika and pepper on top
  12. All done, enjoy!

Tip1: a little butter on your toast, before the avocado goes on, is yummy

Tip2: for something a little healthier and high-protein, top with scrambled eggs in the 3:1 whites-to-yolk ratio. Great brunch

Tempting as it is, don't reach for that chocolate brownie after this. You've done well so far, stay with it!
