1/2 cup butter
1 tablespoon virgin olive oil
5 cloves garlic
2 pinches black pepper

2 pinches coarse sea salt
2 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoon chilli flakes
Combine avocado, lemon juice, garlic, butter, olive oil, salt and cracked pepper in a bowl. Mix well and keep aside.
Slice the baguette into 15 to 20 slices. Do not cut all the way through, keep it still intact at the base.
Spread the garlic-avacado mixture on every slice. Wrap the baguette in a foil and place it on a baking tray.
Place it in a preheated oven at 200C/400F. Bake for 5 minutes and remove the foil.
Put it back into the oven and bake for another 5 minutes or until crisp. Remove and cut it into individual slices.
Season with chilli flakes and oregano. Serve alongside pasta.
