Avocado smash must be one of the yummiest things for a Saturday or Sunday morning breakfast or brunch. It is a simple recipe and there are lots of ways to experiment with additional flavours depending on what takes your fancy.

Ingredients (serves 4)

Basic ingredients (makes a lovely recipe on its own)

  • 2 avocados mashed up with the back of a fork
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 40-80 grams feta, crumbled (amount depending on your feta appetite)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices of sourdough or other nice toast bread
  • Good quality olive oil

Garnish (optional)

  • Poached egg
  • Coriander leaves
  • Mint
  • Toasted black sesame seeds
  • Watercress microgreens

Additional Ingredients can really lift the taste so here are three alternatives:

Alternative 1

Add to the basic ingredients:

  • 1/8 red onion, finely diced (optional)
  • 8 slices of jalapeño, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon sweet chilli sauce
  • A small handful of parsley leaves, roughly chopped

Alternative 2

Add to the basic ingredients:

  • Tiny pinch of garlic powder (added to the avocado mixture)
  • Raw garlic (rubbed over your toast before spreading avocado mixture)

Alternative 3

Add to the basic ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon of chopped dill
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped parsley
  • 100g cherry tomatoes chopped up


  1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, folding in the feta as the last ingredient to add.
  2. Toast the bread and drizzle with olive oil. 
  3. Place large heaped tablespoons of the avocado smash on the toast.
  4. Garnish with feta, coriander leaves, or mint or toasted black sesame seeds or even watercress microgreens.  
  5. You can also add a poached egg to this to up the ante on the protein!
