Pharmaseekers’ Kitchen – Katie Takes on Avocado

A new experience!

At the Pharmaseekers office (we’ll still call it the office even when miles separate us), one of our popular topics of conversation is food. Who am I kidding? It is our FAVOURITE topic. We love discussing new things we’ve tried, recipes we’ve come across, things we did or didn’t like. We thought it would be fun for us to share some of this with you and start a monthly blog about recipes we’ve tried. We’ll let you know where we found the recipes if it’s not our own, how easy it was to make and most importantly, whether it tasted good!

For the first month, Katie is sharing a recipe she found.

What are we making?: Avocado & Goats Cheese on Sourdough Toast

I found this really simple recipe trawling through Instagram and it was originally posted here by emilygracefood. I thought it looked like a great brunch recipe and I love avocado and goats cheese so really wanted to try this one.

Ingredients you will need:

  1. 2 slices sourdough⁣ bread

  2. 1 avocado⁣

  3. 1 1/2 tbsp goats cheese⁣

  4. Juice from 1/2 lime⁣ (*see notes about possible changes)

  5. 2 tbsp dill⁣

  6. Chilli flakes ⁣

  7. Salt & pepper

Method:

  1. In a bowl add the avocado, lime and salt & pepper. Mash up together. Add in dill and goats cheese and mix. ⁣

  2. Pan fry one side of each slice or bread, or toast. ⁣

  3. Add avocado to both slices and press together into a sandwich! That’s it!

The verdict

Did it taste good?

Yes, it tasted great! It was really fresh tasting and didn’t feel stodgy which is good for a meal early in the day. The texture of the toasted sourdough was great as well.

Was it easy to make?

Yes, as simple as a recipe can be. The only real cooking involved was toasting the bread (if you can call that cooking).

*Would I change anything?

Yes, actually. The recipe calls for the juice of 1/2 lime and 1 avocado. For the size of the avocado I used and the size of my lime, I felt it was too much lime juice and made it too sharp. So my tip would be to squeeze the juice of half a lime but only add half the juice to the mixture. Taste the mixture after you’ve added the dill and goats cheese and then add more lime juice if you think it’s needed. I also added a touch more goats cheese as well after tasting the mix.

Would I make it again?

100%! It was easy, tasty and filling, I would definitely recommend it.
