Once I week I will bring you a recipe in hopes to inspire you to experiment in your own Kitchen!
If you’ve ever been in a kitchen with me, I rarely follow recipes. Mostly I just make stuff up, or I will use a recipe to inspire an idea, and then loosely follow it (sometimes I actually follow them. Sometimes this works. Other times.. less so. The ones that you will find on here will be either recipes that I’ve followed (either closely or loosely), or ones that I’ve made up.
My Favourite thing to experiment with: Breakfast! I had posted on Social Media the other day that I like big breakfasts (and I cannot lie..) – they are seriously one of my favourite things. So any day that I get to play around with breakfast is a good day!
So bring on today’s recipe. Medium Poached Eggs on Avocado Toast with Bruschetta.
The first time I made this concoction it was because that is what we had in the fridge. Tomatoes, Basil, eggs and avocados. It has quickly become one of my favourite ways to start a day. Coming in at Roughly 350 Calories, with some protein, healthy fats and some veggies, it will help put a jump start on your day. With making the bruschetta and poaching the eggs, the whole thing took about 15 minutes to make (give or take a few minutes)
Make it your own by tweaking the bruschetta recipe, adding something to your avocado, or get some more carbs by adding an extra piece of toast. (Or some bacon on the side…)
I hope you like it! Let me know what you think!
1 Diced Ripe Plum Tomato
1 tbsp diced red onion or shallot
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp balsamic vinegar (or red wine vinegar)
Splash of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 Slice of Multigrain toast
1/4 Ripe Avocado
Bring a small pot of water to boil for the eggs. Add a splash of vinegar to add flavour
Cut up all of the vegetables or the Bruschetta, combine with the remaining ingredients in a bowl and set aside
Mash avocado and spread evenly over the toast
Once the water is boiling, reduce heat and gently add eggs to water by cracking one egg at a time into a small bowl or measuring cup and gently adding the egg into the water from the cup. Keep the water at a simmer until the eggs are at a desired consistency, about 5-8 minutes for a medium poached egg. Keep an eye on the pot as the eggs can cook quickly, and if heat is too high, will boil over and make a considerable mess.
Once eggs are cooked, remove the eggs from water with a slated spoon. Give the spoon a gentle jiggle to remove excess water.
Assemble the eggs over the toast with Avocado with on it, place a spoonful of bruschetta over top.
*Note: Poaching eggs in a pot can create a sticky residue on the side of the pot. I would recommend washing the pot right away or else that residue will be a new added design on your pot (trust me, I know from experience)
