I think it's fair to say the Smashed Avo craze has past it's peak, and we've all realised that as good as avocados are, they're probably not the most sustainable thing we could be piling on our toast, especially in a restaurant like Salon, where we use seasonal ingredients, sourced as locally as possible.
Having said that, we still like the idea of a big dollop of green goodness on our sourdough in the mornings, which is why my Sous Chef, Paolo Lancini, developed this recipe using all of our broccoli leaves and trimmings, inspired by Smashed Avo's older, retro cousin... Let me introduce you to Brocco-mole!View this Recipe
MORE VEG: Putting veggies in the limelight and shifting meat to the sideline is better for both our health and the planet, helping to cut carbon and save our precious resources.
WASTE NO FOOD: Did you know one-third of all food produced is wasted? Repurposing would-be food waste in a creative way is key to contributing to a better food future.
LOW CARBON FOOTPRINT: A low-carbon recipe uses ingredients that don’t require a lot of resources to produce, helping to conserve our earth’s natural reserves.
CELEBRATE LOCAL: By using locally sourced produce and cutting food miles, we can protect the environment and support our local economies.
SOURCE FISH SUSTAINABLY: Sourcing fish responsibly keeps our oceans healthy for years to come. With 90% of fish stocks over-fished, keep the balance by using fish from sustainable sources.
BETTER MEAT: The ready availability of cheap meat poses not only moral and ethical questions but also a huge environmental threat. Limiting the meat you eat to high-welfare is a great place to start.
