Rosie's healthy avocado on toast is a delicious way to keep your New Year's resolutions - just add or leave out different ingredients to taste

Healthy avocado on toast

Healthy-eating resolutions can sometimes be difficult to stick to, but not with this avocado on toast recipe. It can be eaten at any time of the day-breakfast, lunch and dinner-and easily adapted to suit all tastebuds. If you are in need of a protein hit and are not too bored of turkey, sandwich a slice of the breast between the avocado mix and the toast. Of course, there always needs to be a balance and something this good should be followed by something a little more naughty. The more decadent, brunch version of this recipe will follow shortly.

Serves 1 (allow one avocado per person for a generous portion)

Ingredients:

1 avocado

2 spring onions, finely chopped

Juice of half a lime

Large pinch of chilli flakes

Handful of fresh coriander and parsley, roughly chopped

6 cherry tomatoes, halved

Feta cheese

2 slices sourdough or wholegrain bread

Glug olive oil

Ground pepper

Method:

Half, de-stone and dice your avocado. Place in a small mixing bowl with the spring onions, lime juice, chilli flakes and fresh herbs.

Throw in a little olive oil and mash with a fork until the mixture has reached your desired consistency. Personally, I prefer not to mash it to a purée but would recommend using a food processor if you are after a smoother texture.

Put your bread on to toast. Add the tomatoes to your smashed avocado, crumble in some feta (as much or as little as you like) and season to taste. I don’t include any extra salt due to the salty flavour of the cheese.

Stir until everything is combined.

When your bread has finished toasting, transfer to a plate and drizzle with some more olive oil. Top each slice with as much avocado as possible-this is no culinary work of art-and serve whilst the toast is still warm.
