Smashing Avocado Toast

Recipe by Nicola, hospitality professional and part-time travel writer.


Needed for this recipe:

Sunshine Coast Olive Oil Co. Persian Lime Infused Olive Oil



2 slices of artisan bread (I’ve used a roasted garlic oval, but a peasant grain loaf is also a fantastic choice)

1 perfectly ripe avocado

A generous drizzle of Persian Lime infused olive oil

Freshly ground cracked black pepper



Toast your bread to your preferred darkness.  Whilst this is happening, cut your avocado in half and remove the pit.  Slice up each half 3 or 4 times. Each half of the avocado is for one slice of bread.

Lay out the sliced avocado from each half onto a slice of bread and then mash by pressing your fork first one way and then the next creating a criss-cross pattern.  This keeps your avocado nice and chunky and makes little pockets for capturing the olive oil stopping it from running off (we don’t want to waste it!)

Drizzle with Persian Lime infused olive oil and finish with freshly ground cracked black pepper.


Other flavour enhancing variations include:
