Smashed Avocado On Toast: frequently asked questions

Can you eat raw avocado?

Yes, you don't need to cook the avocado first. Avocado can actually become bitter during cooking or baking. The avocado also quickly loses its nutrients during cooking.

Can you eat an overripe avocado?

Yes, if you have an overripe avocado, it will be quite soft and may have some brown spots. The brown spots are not bad for you, but because of the way they taste it is better to cut them out.
