Avocado on toast - simple yet incredibly satisfying - a fail-safe combination that always seems to please.
This protein-packed breakfast/brunch recipe is the perfect weekend antidote if you've overdone it the night before...
Poached Eggs, Tahini and Pan-fried Avocado
I N G R E D I E N T S
2 tbsp white wine vinegar
4 fresh medium free-range eggs
2 tbsp olive or coconut oil
2 just ripe avocados, cut into 1cm thick slices
4 thick slices fresh bread
3 tbsp tahini, plus extra to serve
1 tsp sumac
1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
Extra-virgin olive oil for drizzling
Squeeze lemon juice (optional)
M E T H O D
Bring a large pan of water to the boil, then add the vinegar. Crack in the eggs one at a time, then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer.
Cook for 2-3 minutes until the whites set. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.
While the eggs are poaching, heat the 2 tbsp oil in a large frying pan. Add the avocado slices and fry for about 1-2 minutes on each side (turn carefully) until slightly golden. Remove from the heat and season with salt and pepper.
Toast the bread until golden.
Spread each slice of toast with tahini, then top with fried avocado and a poached egg.
Season with salt and black pepper, sprinkle with sumac and sesame seeds, then serve with a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil and extra tahini, and a squeeze of lemon juice, if you like.
