Not only does this green favourite taste great, it's good for you, too. Avocados have a soft buttery texture and a mild creamy flavour. You can tell if an avocado is ripe if it feels slightly soft when gently squeezed. Don't press too hard, though, or the flesh will spoil. Add to salads, serve smashed on toast with chilli flakes and a drizzle of lemon juice or enjoy with poached eggs and smoked salmon for breakfast.
