Sexy Lunch Idea: Pesto & Goat’s Cheese On Toast



I discovered this delicious combo one sad, lonely, grey lunchtime last week when WHY THE SWEET FLIPPIDY FLIP HAS CHRIS KEPT THE AVOCADOS IN THE FRIDGE.

Love you boo, I’m not mad, promise.

But basically it meant we had four avocados and none of them were ripe and I was like this is the worst day ever and maybe this means I should just go to McDonald’s and be done with it.

But instead, I just threw together a few straggly ingredients from the fridge and what happened next was pure mouth heaven. Even if the pesto had definitely been in there since 2015 and should maybe definitely 100% have been in the bin and not in my digestive tract, but whatevs.

Eat this for brunch, eat it for lunch, eat it as an 11pm drunk snack. Just whatever you do, eat it, please. It’s important.



Slice of sourdough bread (this Waitrose one is my fave)

Pesto (I used green but red would be a sassy twist)

Goat’s cheese


Sundried tomatoes

Balsamic glaze

Pepper to season


– Toast your bread, obvs.

– Once it’s toasted, top with roughly spread goat’s cheese and roughly spread pesto.

– Top with sliced olives and sliced sundried tomatoes.

– Crumble more cheese on because always more cheese.

– Add a drizzle of balsamic glaze.

– Feel happiness surge through your soul.

Let me know if you’ve make this or if you’ve made anything similar that you think I’ll sob with happiness over…


  • This sounds EPIC. Although I’d be swapping out the olives for green ones, will have to give this a try as I currently have NO AVOCADOS in the house. What is life.

  • This sounds yummy!!

  • I’ve just eaten lunch and now I’m hungry again seeing this haha. I’m definitely going to make this weekend, I’ve pinned. Thanks!! x

    This looks delicious but I will say I found a great tip for ripening your avocados (no euphemism intended 😉 ) which actually works!
    Wrap them in foil and bake them in the oven on a low heat for 10 mins. Ouila ripened avocados. Interestingly enough they dont even get warm but instead they just mysteriously ripen.

    Loving the posts recently btw. 🙂

  • I basically just ate this but substituted my carb of choice from bread to pasta. YES.

  • Jen

    Ah, this looks sexy, indeed! My kind of lunch. Thanks for sharing! xo

  • Yum this looks amazing! Seriously, sometimes some of the best meals are the ones where you’re forced to get creative because there’s simply nothing left in the house. Will for sure be giving this one a try.


  • My favourite lunch is pesto, caramelised onion and goats cheese on a bagel!! It’s SO good but no one else seems to like it.
    Yours is definitely a bit healthier though!

  • nueyork

    This is most definitely a sexy lunch! Yummmmm, I definitely need to give this one a go.

  • These look amazing! Will defo have to give them a try!

  • Oh My God, that looks divine!
    We made bruschettini with goat’s cheese & balsamic glaze at the weekend and thought we were fancy AF, but this wins hands down!

    (M&S do amazing lightly salted bruschettini if you are passing one … I may or may not have eaten the rest of the packet like crisps)

  • This looks absolutely lovely, and I am definitely not regretting reading this while waiting for my lunch break to come up…

  • Cooorr blimey this looks bangin’ OH bloody avos in the fridge is the worst! Have you ever eaten a hard avo? Don’t do it, it’s gross. Thanks for sharing this gem mi love! Immy x

  • Oh my goodness, this sounds so good! Sourdough bread is my weakness!
