The simple things in life are often the best, and Avocado Toast is a great example of that. But there’s one little cheffy trick to step up your avocado toast game that makes all the difference…..

I LOVE avocado season. When avocados are in their prime, when they’re so beautifully creamy and they’re so affordable.

I load up big time. I’d say I get an avocado fix every single day during avocado season.

And of all the ways with avocado, this simple Avocado Toast recipe is definitely my favourite.

You may well know how to make avocado toast – slice bread, toast, mush avocado on toast, sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Yes, it can be that simple. A drizzle of good extra virgin olive oil and a squeeze of lemon or lime will give it an extra edge. I even enjoy avocado toast with egg!

But if you want to really up your Avocado Toast game, rub the toast with garlic.

One of life’s greatest simple pleasures! I’ve included my favourite little trick in this Avocado Toast recipe – it gives it that extra little edge that you’ll love!


1 avocado ripe
2 slices bread of choice sourdough is my favorite
1 garlic clove cut in half (skin on)
Extra virgin olive oil good quality
Salt and pepper
lemon juice optional, from a fresh lemon is best.


Cut avocado in half and remove seed.
Toast bread to your taste, using your method of choice.
While toast is still hot, lightly rub the surface with the cut side of the garlic clove.
Use a spoon to scoop avocado flesh out, then a fork to mush it onto the toast.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Squeeze over a bit of lemon juice, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with cilantro or parsley. Serve immediately!
