Egg, Avocado and Pesto Toast

(7)
"Tasty balanced breaky idea for your Friday morning🍞🥑 Toast, avocado, chopped boiled eggs and a drizzle of pesto. A source of energy (bread), protein (eggs), fats (avocado & pesto), and array of vitamins and minerals (like vitamin A, D and E!)⁣. ⁣ ⁣⁣Foods aren’t often exclusively made up of one macronutrient (i.e. protein, carbs or fats) or micronutrients (vitamin & minerals), and are instead a combination (e.g. the eggs whites are richer in protein, the egg yolks richer in fat). However, they do tend to lean with predominant nutrients - hence we classify them into food ‘groups’, like grains, dairy, or fruit and vege. By selecting a wide variety of foods from different foods groups, you’re more likely to get in a wider variety of nutrients needed for health and well-being🤙.⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣👩‍🍳When making this dish, cook the eggs to you liking - scrambled, sunny side up, whatever works! You can get great storebought pesto at the supermarket, usually in the chiller section (or make your own - check my blog for a basic recipe). Review the ingredient panel for a pottle that has a higher percentage olive olive. They’ll (subjectively) taste better, and olive oil carries well-researched health benefits (worth checking out!). It’s a great source antioxidants and monounsaturated fats, and shown to be of benefit to heart health💛"

ingredients

  • 1 slice of bread, toasted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon avocado, mashed
  • 2 teaspoons homemade or store bought pesto

Method

  • Step 1

    In a small pot, bring enough water to cover 1 egg to a boil. While the water is coming to a boil, submerge the egg in a small bowl with warm water. This will prevent the egg from cracking once it's submerged in hot water.

  • Step 2

    Once the water is boiling, gently lower the egg into the pot with a spider or ladle. Cook for 8 minutes. While the egg is cooking, fill a small bowl with ice water. Remove the egg from the pot and into the ice water.

  • Step 3

    While the egg is cooling, spread the mashed avocado onto the toasted bread. Then, peel the egg and cut into quarters. Add to the bread. Drizzle the pesto on and enjoy!
