Cheesy Broccoli Avocado Toasts – crispy oven baked toast, topped with cheesy broccoli goodness for a perfect any time of day combo.
2 slices (2oz/60g) of 100% whole wheat bread (1 HEb)
30g (1oz) of cheddar? (1 HEa)
200g of frozen broccoli
42g of avocado (3.5 syns) – optional
cooking oil spray (I used avocado oil one)
SeaSalt and Black pepper
fire-roasted? tomato or red pepper flakes
Preheat oven to 200c of 400f (180C FAN) Gas Mark 6
Place the bread on a baking tray lined with parchment paper, spray over the top of the bread with cooking oil spray, add a little pinch of sea salt and bake until lightly golden on top.
While toast is baking, place broccoli florets in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of water, cover with a plate and microwave for approx 5 mins (If you don’t have a microwave, you can steam instead)
Drain any excess liquid.
Allow to cool slightly then roughly mash with a fork
Mash in the avocado if using!!
When the top side of the bread is golden, flip over and place back in the oven, just to slightly brown the underside. (this ensures the underside doesn’t go soggy from the broccoli)
Remove toast from oven, add the broccoli (and avocado if using) mixture to the top of the bread.
Top with the cheddar and a little black pepper and pinch of fire roasted tomato flakes (or red chilli flakes for a little kick), give a little spray over the top with cooking oil spray.
Place bake in the oven until cheese is melted and golden.
Serve and Enjoy!!
