Duchess Meghan’s secret to her unbeatable avocado toast recipe
The Duchess of Sussex may have her hands tied as she prepares to welcome her first child, but that doesn’t mean she can’t whip up breakfast fit for a queen when her friends pay a visit.
The former actress's makeup artist, Daniel Martin, took to Instagram on Sunday to share exactly what the royal had prepared for him.
The 37-year-old made avocado on toast, complete with tea and chocolate truffles.
“Back to our Tig days …,” the makeup artist captioned the photo, as he referred to the Duchess’ now defunct blog, The Tig.
“Thank you, Meghan, for being the consummate hostess this weekend and still being the #avocadotoast whisperer, YUM!”
Alongside the sweet snap, Martin also posted a video of his journey to London, saying, “Weekend in London with my M,” referring to Meghan.
Martin is the man behind Meghan’s natural makeup look on her wedding day and has been a close friend of the Duchess for a long time.
Known to be a foodie, Meghan helped create a charity cookbook in collaboration with women who survived the Grenfell Tower tragedy. The book – Together: Our Community Cookbook – helped raise money for the Hubb Community Kitchen, where local women gathered to cook fresh meals for their friends and family.
The book features a diverse range of recipes from the women of Hubb Community Kitchen with the Duchess claiming the avocado and green chilli dip is her “very favourite”.
Try out the recipe below:
- 2 green chillies, halved and de-seeded
- 25g fresh coriander
- 3 tbsp natural yoghurt
- Grated zest and juice of 2 lemons
- 4 garlic cloves, peeled
- Flesh of 1 ripe avocado
- 4 tbsp mayonnaise (optional)
- Salt and pepper
- Put all the ingredients except the mayonnaise into a food processor and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary. Add mayonnaise (if you wish) and stir to combine, then transfer to a serving bowl.
