How do we get our hands on a bouquet of ingredients? Do you just pick up a fistful of lilies from your local florist? No, not unless you’re trying to pepper your meal with the savory, subtle, chemical notes of pesticide.
Aside from the fact that not all flowers are edible, you can’t tell what weedkillers they may be have been treated with, so unless you’re growing your own, organic, preferably non-poisonous garden, that leaves you with two realistic options: You either hit the jackpot at your local farmer’s market, or you go through a reliable online edible flower distributor.
Avocado Toasts Ingredients: serves 4 ppl
- 2-4 hard boiled eggs
Mash the avocado with a fork in a shallow bowl until chunky. Season with fine salt and black pepper.
Toast the bread until browned and crisp. Lightly rub 1 side of each slice with the cut side of the garlic until fragrant; discard the garlic. Lightly brush the toasts with oil, and season with fine salt and pepper. Divide the mashed avocado evenly among the toasts, and top with more flaky sea salt, more black pepper and red pepper flakes if using. Cut hard boiled egg in half and place over toast (optional). Decorate with edible flowers (violas).
