Step 1: Ingredients
All you really need is an avocado (talk about simplicity!), but to spice things up, I used some extra things as well:
- juice (+ flesh if you love citric acid) of half a lime
- some spices – use anything in the cupboard. I used
- pinch of chilli flakes
- some ground ginger
- a few mustard seeds
You probably don't want as much of the spices as in the picture unless you like things spicy, but I though that it was quite nice... A ¼ tsp. will probably be adequate for each.
Step 2: Chop
Slice & dice the avocado. That's it.*
*unless you happen to need to chop the lime as well, but I'm trying to make this seem simple!
Step 3: Mix
Mix. In a bowl. Enough said.
Step 4: Smash
Proceed to smash the ingredients with a suitable blunt instrument, like a fork. This works best when you mash against the side of the bowl. Continue until everything has reached a reasonably spreadable consistency and your spices are mixed in.
Step 5: Serve
Spread the avocado smash on some buttered (go on, this is healthy enough!) toast and dig in. It'll be gone before you know it...
