rock salt

I don't know about you, but when I'm home (usually at the weekends) I really struggle with lunch. Not eating it - that part I'm fine with - but coming up with interesting ideas of what to rustle up. During the week I try my best to take lunch to work with me; usually a salad, sarnie or soup, and by the time the weekend has arrived I want something more interesting! 

Recently, these two beauties have been what I turn to - garlicky, cheesy mushrooms on toast, or avocado with chili flakes. I was inspired by Rosie's Wild Mushroom Melts for the former, and although my version isn't quite as fancy, it never fails to hit the spot. Very simply, fry mushrooms in a pan with butter and garlic, and just before serving stir in a heap of grated cheese. Oh yes. It aint gonna make you slim, but it will make you happy - that I can guarantee.

And secondly, avocado is made a million times better with chili flakes. Well, what isn't! I try not to crush/mash the avocado too much as you still want a little bite, but just smush (technical term) in a bowl and pile on toast. Crack some rock salt and pepper over the top, followed by a generous shake of chili flakes. If you have a lime to hand, a small squeeze of juice is a great addition. As both of these toppings are on the soft side, you definitely want to serve them with toast rather than bread. I like using sourdough if I can get hold it, if not a good old bloomer will do!



  1. Ah this looks so yummy and definitely one for me to try, as mushrooms, cheese and avocado would all come under favourtie foods for me. Should not have read this before lunch though, goodness knows what I'll end up getting now that this has made so hungry haha xxx

  2. I'm still yet to try avocado on toast - I really feel like i'm missing out!

  4. This looks so good, but I wouldn't be able to eat it :( I'm not a fan of mushrooms, cheese or avocado. I find it quite hard to rustle up interesting meals, as I don't like potatoes, cheese, milk and most vegetables, which tends to mean I'm forced to eat the same meals very often. Any suggestions? xx

  5. Yes!! Yum :) This all looks sooooooo good! :)

  6. Oh my GADDDD this looks amazing!
