Tomato Avocado Toast
Smashed avocado, topped with crumbled feta and roasted cherry tomatoes. Tomatoes on toast don't come more delicious than this!
Servings: 4 slices of toast
Cost: £2 / $2.50
- 20 Cherry Tomatoes (approx 9oz/250g)
- 4 small slices of Sourdough, toasted (or bread of choice)
- 2 medium sized Avocados, roughly diced
- 4 tbsp crumbled Feta
- 1 heaped tbsp finely diced Fresh Basil (approx 6-8 large leaves)
- 1/2 Lemon, juice only (to taste)
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil, as needed
- Salt & Cracked Black Pepper, to taste
Roasted Tomatoes: In a small baking dish combine cherry tomatoes with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Pop in the oven at 200C/390F until they begin to lightly char and wrinkle (around 10-15mins).
Smashed Avocado: In a medium sized mixing bowl add avocado, basil, a squeeze of lemon juice, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and good pinch of salt and pepper. Lightly smash with a fork, leaving a few lumps here and there for some texture.
Toast: Divide smashed avocado among 4 slices of toast, then top with crumbled feta. Add 5 roasted cherry tomatoes per slice of toast, then drizzle over some of the juices from the baking dish. Enjoy!
a) Do I have to roast the tomatoes? - Roasting the tomatoes not only softens them, but it sweetens and intensifies the flavour. You can keep them raw, and just slice in half. BUT you'll miss out of flavour, alongside the yummy leftover juice from when they've roasted.
b) Additions - This toast has the perfect balance of flavours as it is. But if you want to take things a little further a fried egg (or poached egg) is also welcomed, as is crispy bacon.
c) Calories - per slice of toast assuming 1.5 tbsp oil is used in total.
