You know when a food staple has completely passed you by and then all of a sudden you finally make it and realise it’s the best thing ever. That is what has just happened to me with Avacado toast. I swear the Californians have been making this for years, and everyone else in the world has been at it for at least a year or so. Seeing as I love Avocado it’s pretty surprising I had never tried Avocado on toast before. However whilst I may have come late to the party I sure am making up for lost time. I have been eating this like the Avocado is becoming extinct (god forbid). I mean seriously this has been on the menu at least once a week. But here’s why – it is the perfect snack, small meal or meal accompaniment, it works for breakfast, lunch and dinner, midnight snacks, post gym snacks, mid morning snacks. You get the picture you can literally eat it anytime. And all you really need is some bread or Pitta Bread, an Avocado, a little bit of salt and pepper and sprinkle of chilli flakes and you’re there. It’s pretty much mash avocado, season, spread and eat. It couldn’t be simpler or more delicious. I mean I am tempted to say this could be the dish of 2014 for me and it is only February. So if you want to mix up your breakfast, lunch or dinner routine, or you just want a snack, I seriously suggest giving a try. Trust me you won’t regret it. You may just wish you lived in a place where Avocado’s grew on trees, I sure wish I did!
And with Pancake day approaching maybe I should try a savoury Avocado Pancake?
Too far? We’ll have to wait and see!
Happy Avocado based weekends!
