Why are avocadoes so darn good for you anyway?
They are filled with vitamins (K, C, B6 to name a few), contain folate and potassium, are great for your heart, contain a high amount of fiber and can even help you lose weight.
They are also really delicious – which is reason enough for us to serve them with anything and everything!
How do you enjoy eating avocadoes?
- 2 thick slices of bread. Make sure the slices are thick enough to hold everything.
- 1 perfectly ripened avocado.
- 2 extra fresh organic eggs. (You want to make sure your eggs are extra fresh because you will be cooking them for very little time.)
- Salt and pepper to taste.
- Finely slice half an avocado for each slice of bread.
- Place the avocado slices on the bread. Cover the entire slice of bread.
- Poach one egg for each slice of bread.
- To poach the eggs, bring water to a boil in a large pot. It needs to be large enough so that the eggs can poach without touching the bottom of the pot. If the eggs stick to the bottom of the pot, they will break mid-poach. To avoid this, use a larger-than-you-think-is-necessary pot. Once water has come to a boil, reduce heat and keep the water boiling gently. Carefully crack open each egg, taking care not to break the yolk, and add to water. Leave for 4 minutes. Remove the eggs from the (slow) boiling water using a slotted spoon.
- Place one poached egg on each slice of avocado toast.
- Season with the salt and pepper.
