Smashed Avocado on Toast

Toast a gluten free bread of your choice. I use The Little Northern Bakehouse. Spread some butter or olive oil on the toast so it is not too dry.

Any juicy and plump avocado will do. It doe not have to be organic. Slit the avocado into half and use a spoon remove and discard the pit. Chop and put in a medium bowl then drizzle some fresh lemon juice over it. Mash the avocadoes using a fork or a potato masher. Add in a tiny garlic clove and a pinch of sea salt. Mash some more and stir it all well and your guacamole is ready to be spread on the toast.

I have used freshly sprouted rainbow microgreens as a topping to make it a little more nutrient dense with some visual appeal - Which always helps! Hope you enjoy your unique version of Avoacdo on toast and share it with your friends and family.
