"Butter Fruit" on Toast

If you don't know already, avocados (butter fruit) are really, really, really healthy for you and you ought to eat them at least twice a week! Read more about avocados here.

Eat them as they are when ripe or use them in simple recipes. Be encouraged by their super healthy nutritional properties.

Below I share another simple-to-make avocado recipe:

What you need
  • 1 medium sized ripe avocado
  • Some diced green and red sweet peppers
  • Avocado oil (you can use coconut or olive oil as substitutes)
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Fresh basil (you can also use freshly picked scent leaves if you can get them)
  • A chunky slice of Nigerian style hard dough bread (Alternatively use your favourite bread). 

What to do
  1. Cut through the avocado pear carefully, remove the centre stone and dice. 
  2. In a bowl combine the chopped avocado with about a spoonful each of the green and red peppers (use more or less as preferred). 
  3. Briskly rinse some fresh basil leaves and slice thinly. Add a spoonful of the sliced basil also to the chopped avocado. 
  4. Add a pinch of salt and freshly milled black pepper. 
  5. Finally add about one spoonful (more or less as preferred) of the avocado oil. 
  6. Carefully mix the lot together and avoid mashing up the avocado.
  7. Toast your chunk of bread on a hot griddle
  8. Serve with the avocado
