This is a classic Australian healthy breakfast (and one of my absolute favourites!), I am yet to find one person who doesn't like it! The flavours are SO tasty, it's the perfect lazy weekend breakfast that is also super good for you. Avocados are an amazing source of Omega-3 fatty acids which are important for good brain health, glowing skin and healthy hair.
1 ripe avocado
Pinch of salt
¼ cup feta, crumbled
1 tsp finely chopped mint, fresh
1 tbs freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
Red chilli flakes (optional)
2 tsp white vinegar
4 slices of rye bread
1. To make the smashed avo, scoop out the avocado and use a fork to roughly mash it. Stir in the salt, feta, chopped mint, lemon juice and chilli.
2. To poach the eggs: fill a large saucepan with water and the vinegar. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to medium. Using a wooden spoon, create a whirlpool in the water and quickly break the eggs one at a time, into the middle of it. An easy tip is to crack your eggs individually on a small saucer first, so you can easily slip them into the water.
3. Poach eggs for 2-4 mins depending on how runny you like them. I settle for the middle - 3 minutes.
4. Toast your bread.
5. Assemble smashed avo on your toast, topped with poached eggs and a little drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
