Easy Avocado Spread
Prep time
Total time
A quick and easy way to eat avocados
  • I ripe Avocado
  • About 1 tsp butter (optional)
  • Several generous pinches of salt - preferably Maldon
  • Your favourite bread - crusty is nice
  1. Cut the avocado in half and take out the central stone
  2. Scoop the flesh out (making sure to include all the darker green flesh near the skin) and put it into a bowl
  3. Add the butter and the salt
  4. Now mash it up with a fork until there are no more lumps
  5. When it is nice and smooth and light - spread it on your bread
  6. Enjoy!
Note - if you are lunching alone and a whole mashed avocado is a bit much, you can just do half, and cover the remaining half with cling film and save it for later. It is important to eat it quickly once made, as it tends to discolour after a while.


I quite like it plain like this. But you could add some chopped coriander or spring onions. And maybe some freshly milled black pepper.
