A delicious meal that can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch or dinner! This spicy avocado toast is a must try!

I love having toast on weekend mornings for brunch – it makes a really nice change from my regular breakfast, which tends to be sweet like a smoothie or porridge. There’s something about having a savoury breakfast that makes me feel like it’s my day off to relax and unwind!

This spicy chickpea avocado toast is one of my go-tos for lunch when I want something quick and easy that’s also satisfying and healthy.

It’s a balanced meal with carbs, protein and healthy fats that’s really easy put together. I would usually serve with a dark green leafy salad to make sure I get my greens in.
