Cooking time 20 minutes
Makes 20


You will need
1 small ripe avocado
1 lemon, juiced
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper
5 thin medium-sized slices of sourdough bread
2 tbsp olive oil
50g mixed radishes, thinly sliced
½ red onion, thinly sliced
1 bunch watercress, picked


Directions
Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/Gas Mark 4.


While you are waiting for the oven to warm up, cut the avocado in half, remove the stone, scoop out the flesh and place in a small bowl. Lightly mash with a fork, then add the lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil, season with salt and pepper then set aside.


Place the sourdough slices on a large baking tray, drizzle over the olive oil and put in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until crispy and toasted. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 5 minutes.


Once cooled break each piece of toast into 4 pieces, then spread with the avocado and top with radish, red onion and watercress. Serve immediately.
