Avocado Smash with Butter Beans


It could be a salad, it could be a dip, let’s just call it a side dish. For me vegan cooking is most of the time about composing your meal with many different little dishes, the more colour on your plate the better.

Prep time: 10 min

Difficulty: easy




  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 250g plum or baby tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 400g butter (or cannellini) beans
  • 3 spring onions, finely chopped
  • Juice of a large lemon
  • ½ tsp. chilli flakes
  • Freshly ground black pepper


1. Peel the avocados, roughly chop them and then place them in a salad bowl. Smash them using a fork, perhaps not quite to a baby food consistency.

2. Add the lemon juice, pepper, chilli flakes and stir a couple of times. Then add the tomatoes, beans & spring onions and stir again. Ground more black pepper on top, if you like.
