Part IV: On-The-Go Breakfast Series
Avocado Toast w/ Sun Dried Tomatoes, Poached Egg, & Dukkah
Yes, it’s Avocado Toast and I’m in love with it! It’s not only my go-to breakfast food but it’s my go-to lunch on the weekends and a quick snack whenever. This is a breakfast food that should definitely be in your on-the-go breakfast rotation. I encourage you to make this on your own as Avocado Toast has grown in popularity so much so, that you can order it at the trendiest of restaurants and pay the trendiest of monies for it. How do I know? Because I have…. for research purposes only though!
To make this ambrosia, food of the gods as it has been euphemistically referred to, you need just avocado, toast and your imagination. My avocado recipe consists of sun dried tomatoes, a poached egg, grain bread, and my new favorite seasoning, dukkah. It’s a party in your mouth with a wonderful marriage of flavors. It is packed with the nutrient potassium and it contains those heart healthy monounsaturated fatty acids. The good fats.
Avocado toast is customizable. You can go plain avo, toast and sea salt or as I said, let your imagination take over by adding thinly sliced cucumbers, radishes, tomatoes, feta cheese, corn and so on. It’s an empty palate waiting for you to go wild.
So, tell me, how do you avo your toast? Let me know.
Avocado Toast w/ Sun Dried Tomatoes, Poached Egg, & Dukkah//serves 1
2 pieces whole grain bread
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 eggs, poached
½ cup sundried tomatoes, packed in oil
1 large ripe avocado, sliced or mashed
2 tablespoons Dukkah, optional
Kosher salt and ground pepper
Fill a large sauce pan with water and add vinegar. Bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat to simmering. Crack in both eggs and cook for 2 ½ minutes. The eggs should be oval and still loose in the middle due to the yolks not being set. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.
Toast your bread. Spoon the sun-dried tomatoes onto each slice of bread. Next, slice or mash your avocado and arrange on the toasted bread. Place the poached egg atop of each slice and sprinkle with dukkah, salt and pepper.
