Fresh, light and tasty - this avocado and feta toast recipe ticks all the boxes. Packed with vitamins and bursting with flavour, this quick meal will work whenever you need it.
It could be a fast and healthy breakfast or perhaps a light lunch. It also works great as a pre- or post-workout snack to fuel your muscles and boost your performance.
Avocados - I haven't met an Australian who doesn't love them! I can certainly see why - they're nutritious, versatile and quick and easy to prepare and use. I love the blend and balance of the flavours in this. The smooth, mellowness of the avocado, the salty feta, the fresh burst of basil and the kick of the black pepper and just a hint of lemon.
I think you'll really enjoy this one. I tend to have this as a light lunch or snack, but I know most people might prefer it as a breakfast or brunch-type meal. Perhaps for one of those lazy weekend mornings when you have some time to spare and want to sit down and really enjoy your first meal of the day.

You could leave out the lemon and basil and use some other flavourings instead. A spice mix such as Dukkah would be nice, or some toasted sesame seeds.
Bear in mind the lemon juice does help stop the avocado going brown. You might like to switch out for lime juice and zest instead.
See what you have in your pantry - lemon pepper seasoning, za'atar spice or even ground cumin or coriander would work well.
The basil works really well with the lemon and tomato but you could of course change this for any fresh herbs you have available. Parsley would give a nice light fresh flavour, or try coriander, thyme or dill for a different twist.
