Put An Egg On It- Easy Avocado Toast Recipe
May 7, 2019
The only thing better than avocado toast is avocado toast with a perfectly cooked soft boiled runny egg right on top.
Soft boiling an egg to your liking can be trickier than you’d expect. Follow the recipe below for the perfect soft boiled egg, no matter what your preference.
(Recipe Serves 2-4)
- 4 eggs
- 4 slices of bread toasted
- 1 large avocado
- 1/4 tsp of coarse sea salt
- 1/8 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 cup of micro greens or arugula (divided into four)
EGGS: Fill a medium sized pot with enough water so that the 4 eggs can be fully submerged. Bring water to a boil. Once the water is boiling, use a slotted spoon to gently lower the eggs into the boiling water.
For a 6 minute egg (see below) allow the egg to boil for 6 minutes then, using your slotted spoon, immediately remove the eggs from the boiling water and place them in a bowl of ice water. Peel just before eating.
For a 7 minute egg (see below) allow the egg to boil for 7 minutes then immediately remove the eggs from the boiling water and place them in a bowl of ice water. Peel just before eating.
Tips For Peeling Your Eggs: Tap the base (the fatter bottom) of the egg gently until it cracks. Begin to peel the egg. This is where you will usually find the eggs air pocket and should be able to get under the thin egg membrane. Continue peeling from under the egg’s membrane. If you peel from under this membrane your egg shell will come off clean. Practice makes perfect.
TOAST: Peel and de-seed the avocado. In a bowl gently mash together the avocado, salt and smoked paprika. Divide the avocado mash into 4 even portion and spread it onto each piece of toast. Top each piece of toast with micro greens. Place the egg on top of the micro green. Cut into egg just before eating and devour!
