A mash of ripened avocado, scallion, lemon, curry powder and cayenne pepper, spooned onto your favourite bread. This AVOCADO TOAST is healthy goodness in every bite!

Nutrition experts say that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day, and with this recipe, healthy never tasted so good.

The principle ingredient in this recipe is avocado, so let’s begin with a quick review on the benefits of eating them:

1) They are loaded with essential vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin K, Folate, Vitamin C, Potassium, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Vitamin E and more.

2) A medium-sized avocado contains 160 calories, 2 grams of protein and 15 grams of healthy fats. Avocados are friendly for a low-carb diet, as well as a vegetarian or vegan one.

3) Avocados do not contain any cholesterol or sodium, and are low in saturated fat.

This recipe allows us to enjoy the goodness of this fruit in a simple, easy-to-prepare fashion – lightly smashed with lemon juice, curry and cayenne, then spooned onto a favourite toasted bread. The result is both delicious and refreshing.

Enjoy Avocado Toast knowing you’re getting the maximum benefits with each and every bite.



Ingredients & Amounts

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 scallion, rough-chopped
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • pinch of curry powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 slices of healthy bread, toasted


  1. Ensure your avocado is ripe, the flesh giving fairly easily when gently squeezed. Cut the avocado lengthways into two halves. Remove and discard the stone. Take one half and cradle it in the palm of your hand. Draw a small paring knife through the flesh, creating a crisscross pattern. Repeat with the other half. Loosen the flesh by running a spoon between it and the skin, and scoop into a small bowl.
  2. Trim, then rough-chop one scallion and add it to the bowl. Add the lemon juice, cayenne pepper, curry powder and salt. Gently mash the ingredients together, adding salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Spoon avocado mix onto two slices of toasted bread. Serve immediately.
Listen on MUSIC

Listening to great music is an essential part of every Weekend at the Cottage. I absolutely love listening to choral music first thing in the morning, especially when preparing a healthy breakfast. This music by Pergolese and Scarlatti is quite divine. Head to iTunes to download this beautiful piece of music, plus additional ones by Verdi and Puccini to your collection.
