At Hello Monday we try to do a shared lunch together every month and it’s a lovely time in the office. We tend not to talk about work during these lunches. It’s a time to relax, share personal stories so we get to know each other on a deeper level and have some laughs. The food brings us together and it’s a common experience we share and talk about.

Here are some of our favourite recipes:


Spicy Avocado Smash

Take a look in the Hello Monday fridge and you will no doubt find a fresh avocado – or 5!
Make as an easy side dish or to have on your toast; this is sure to become your new favourite flavour combination!
