This basic avocado toast hits the spot every time. Mashed avocado atop a sturdy base of good bread - this is hands-down the best avocado toast recipe.


  • 2 slices good bread, preferably sourdough
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 drizzle extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 squeeze lemon juice, to taste
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 pinch red chilli/red pepper flakes


  1. Toast the sourdough until golden brown. 
  2. While the sourdough is toasting, mash the avocado using a fork. We usually just mash it straight in its skin, but if you prefer, you can scoop out the avocado and mash it in a bowl. 
  3. Remove the bread from the toaster and lightly drizzle it with olive oil. 
  4. Top the oiled toast with smashed avocado.
  5. Squeeze lemon juice on top, and finish with sea salt, chilli flakes and any additional toppings.
  6. Enjoy!
