We have moved from one avocado growing area to another. Here in the Byron Bay Hinterland there are so many avocado farms and people selling organic avocados. Avocado prices here are a little strange but I have finally found a few good places to get them for a $1 each instead of $3 each. Who would have thought that even in an avocado area you can still charge a premium for avocado’s.
One of the great things about avocado’s is there are several varieties and they all have a different growing season. Which means in the sub-tropics we are blessed with avo’s for most of the year.
Avocado toast is one of my all time favourites for breakfast from when I was a kid. Since then I have explored the possibilities of what you can add to avocado toast. For a very long time I was a plain avocado and salt kinda girl.
When I started working in cafes that did breakfast I soon discovered avocado & Vegemite on toast. At first I thought it was a crazy idea but we use to eat Vegemite scrambled eggs when I was young. Yes – weird, but yum. I was an instant convert from that day on that avo and Vegemite was a great combo.
When Roy and I started sharing breakfasts for the first time, the avocado on toast topic came up, I was confused by his choice. Wasabi & soy sauce. Yes – weird, right. Wrong! It is a great flavour combo. Roy’s technique is to spread your toast with a little butter followed by a lightly spreading a little wasabi. Mash the avocado on top and then using a knife create lines or divots so when you add the soy sauce it stays on top.
Another classic breakfast is avocado with bacon on toast. This is a miracle cure for hangovers I swear. The salty oily creation will perk you up along side a good strong cup of tea or coffee. I can vouch for it. I worked in hospitality for years, drinking with the best of them, only to find myself feeling a little sorry for myself the next day only having to face another day at work. The best energy booster.
