This simple spread of avocado with fresh herbs and lemon makes a delicious a filling for sandwiches. You can also use it as a dip for raw vegetables

Ingredients

  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 1 tbsp lemon or lime juice
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tbsp sliced scallions
  • 2 tsp hot sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed

Directions

Cut the avocado in half and scoop out the flesh. Place in a bowl and mash with a fork until only small lumps remain. Add all remaining "spread" ingredients and stir through to combine.

Serve with:
8 slices whole wheat bread
2 medium tomatoes, thinly sliced
100g (about 3 1/2 oz.) arugula or baby spinach leaves

Toast the bread slices. Layer one slice with 1/4 of the avocado spread, sliced tomatoes and greens. Top with another slice, then warm through in a pan or toaster oven. Serve immediately.
