Recipe of the Week: Avocado Poached Eggs

Sometimes you just need to break out of the typical “scrambled eggs and toast” routine. We have the perfect protein-packed proposition for you: Avocado poached eggs. Healthy fats, protein, and a whole lot of yum with relatively little effort.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 avocado
  • 2 large eggs
  • Vinegar
  • Water
  • Salt & pepper to taste

How to make:

  • Halve your avocado and remove the pit. Scoop out a bit of extra flesh to allow room for your egg.
  • Add about 3 inches of water (enough to submerge a cracked egg without it touching the bottom) and a splash of vinegar into a large pan.
  • Bring water to a gentle boil.
  • Crack one egg into a cup and slide it into the water.
  • Repeat with second egg.
  • Cook in water for 3 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove; be sure to drain as much water as possible. The key is to be gentle with the egg as they crack very easily.
  • Pop your egg into the hole in the avocado, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and enjoy.

Tip: We recommend a slice of sprouted toast on the side to dip into the extra yolk.
