smashed pea avocado toast

So, word on the street is Avocado Toast is the new Kale Salad, or something like that. It's okay by me. I love a nice smooth avocado on some crunchy, crusty bread.

This recipe includes some nice Mexican flavors like cilantro and lime. I added a sprinkle of cayenne pepper on top for a little kick.

And here is a craft my son made up. He wrapped a piece of paper towel with orange tape and said it was a rock. Then he said the rock needed a dinosaur so I made a T-rex.

Another great way to use this avocado mixture is spread some on a toasted tortilla and place a fried egg on top.

Smashed Pea Avocado Toast
Adapted from Food52

  • 1 cup green peas, fresh or thawed
  • 1 large handful of cilantro
  • 1 piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 2 avocados
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Salt and pepper and cayenne pepper or any other spice you like
  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until mostly combined - or how you like.  I happen to like mine chunky.
  2. Serve on toast of your choice. Sprinkle with cilantro leaves and spices.


  1. I love avocado toast, but my belly doesn't. It has the strangest reactions to avocado. Sigh. I'll just live vicariously through you!

    1. Oh, that is too bad. Well, I will double up on my avocado consumption just for you!!
