Avocado and Broad Beans on Toast


This is quick to put together and brilliantly filling and colourful. Broad beans contain plant-based protein, fibre, and lots of other essential nutrients (so I will often buy them frozen when not in season). The avocados give a wonderful creamy contrast and contain healthy fats, and additional fibre to support our digestion.

To make a more substantial meal, try topping with flaked or smoked salmon, crab, leftover roast chicken or feta. It also makes a tasty salad if you substitute the toast for a handful of leaves.

  • 1-2 slices good quality bread (I use Biona Millet Bread, but a good sourdough or 100% rye would work well too)
  • 80g frozen peas
  • 80g fresh or frozen broad beans
  • ¼ ripe avocado, mashed
  • 2-3 leaves fresh mint (or ½ tsp dried mint)
  • 1 spring onion – chopped
  • Thin slices of red onion, optional
  • Sprinkle of linseeds, optional

Steam the broad beans and peas until thawed and bright green. If I am feeling methodical, I further pod the broad beans by popping them out of their grey-green casings (but if they are small enough, I don’t bother).

Mix the beans and peas with the chopped spring onion and half the mint, add a generous sprinkle of sea salt and black pepper and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.

Toast the bread well and top with the mashed avocado.

Pile the bean and pea mix onto the toast, sprinkle with the remaining mint, linseeds and red onion if using and enjoy.
