(S)mashed Avocado on Toast

Smashed or mashed? We offered an optional spelling, just in case you think we're gettin' all hipster on you! Whatever you call it, avocado on toast is gorgeous. It doesn't have to be expensive either - there are plenty of bargains in supermarkets and greengrocers. We've also found frozen avocados - see below.  And of course, the ready-to-eat variety are handy and found everywhere. 

And given that avos can be a bit hit and miss in the UK, here are two more suggestions! 

Make this dish gluten-free by using GF bread or crackers or any other carbs of your choice!

  • ½-1 avocado per person
  • 1-2 slices of toast per person
  • Lime or lemon juice
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Optional: crushed garlic, a little - fresh or from a tube
  • Optional: watercress and edamame beans to decorate


  1. Make the toast.
  2. Place a half or whole avocado per each slice of toast. Slice or mash with a fork. 
  3. Sprinkle with salt, lime juice or lemon, lots of black pepper plus the crushed garlic if using. 
  4. Eat immediately.
