Avocados are a well-known superfood, full of potassium and healthy fats. But do they taste good? Before yesterday, I would have said no. After making this recipe, however, I am a convert. And the best part is, it’s soooo easy.


1 avocado
1/2 lemon (juice)
1 small clove garlic or half regular-sized clove
2 slices crusty bread


1. mash lemon juice and garlic in a bowl.photo2
2. Add salt.
3. Add pitted, pealed avocado and mash until smooth.
4. Toast bread (don’t forget the butter!)
5. Spread avocado spread on buttered toast and enjoy!
(Optional garnishes include sprouts, cilantro, cracked pepper, sundried tomatoes, or pretty much anything).
