Alternatively, why not customise your topping: thinly-sliced beef tomatoes, crispy streaky bacon and a fried egg all work well with the avocado.

    This is one of those recipes that came to me in a “wow” moment.  It’s a brunch, or supper, or starter – or whatever!  And it’s ready in just 10 minutes.  Did I mention that it tastes absolutely divine?  And if you’re not already convinced, here’s the clincher: all you have to do is put some bread in the toaster to cook it.

    See?  Wow.  Smashed-Avocado Toasts with Marinated Artichokes.  It’s on my menu today.

    Steps

    1
    Done

    Pop the slices of baguette in the toaster until lightly browned. As soon as they are done and while they are still hot, drizzle over a good glug of olive oil from the artichoke jar, and rub each baguette slice with the peeled garlic clove. Put to one side.

    2
    Done

    Halve the avocados, take out the stone and scoop out the flesh. Put the pieces into a small bowl and immediately squeeze over the juice from half the lemon, to prevent the avocado turning brown. Mash the avocado with a fork, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste as you go.

    3
    Done

    To assemble the toasts, spread a quarter of the mashed avocado on each of the baguette slices, top with the radishes and then 2 pieces of artichoke per toast. Squeeze over the rest of the lemon juice, drizzle with more artichoke oil and eat straight away.
