Avocado. Maybe the most posted food item on my Instagram feed. Thus I figured it was time to have a post dedicated to one of my favourite breakfast sides, this tangy fresh and delicious avocado and feta mash. I almost wasn’t going to bother as it’s so simple but it’s so good so here we are. It’s great just with crackers or as part of a big shared brunch spread or just smeared on to your toast… maybe with an egg on top! If you’re not a coriander fan you could replace with either basil, mint or flat leaf parsley. The lemon can be replaced with lime and sometimes i put a clove of garlic or a pinch of paprika or cumin in to change the flavour profile depending on what I’m serving it with. But this is the basic recipe. This makes enough for 4-6 pieces of toasts depending on how generous you’re feeling!
1 ripe avocado
2 very finely sliced spring onions (use as far up the green part as you can!) NOTE: i don’t use the white part due to intolerance if you do you will only need 1 spring onion:)
3 Tbs roughly chopped coriander
80g feta cheese
1 teaspoon finely diced red chili
Juice of half a medium lemon
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 tsp lemon zest to serve
Place all ingredients into a bowl and mash to combine, should not be smooth but slightly lumpy (see picture) so it still have texture when you eat it. Taste and adjust seasoning (think of the lemon as seasoning too, you may need to add more depending on how tart your lemon was!). Serve.
