Avocado Toast

I am guilty of grabbing a banana for breakfast most days of the week. When I have a little more time, I make oatmeal or a fruit and veggie smoothie with chia seeds and a sprinkle of maca root powder for good measure. Bigger breakfasts are for weekends in my house. I can't seem to give up that second (or third) snooze cycle.

This morning, despite hitting the snooze button I had some extra time. I decided to go for a more filling breakfast using what we had available. The result was avocado toast. I'm sure you've seen several versions of this recipe popping up all over the web. I've seen tons of avocado based breakfast toasts that I want to try. Here's my version.

Avocado Toast
1 slice of bread of your choice
1/2 Haas avocado, pitted and diced
1/2 plum tomato
1 egg, hard boiled
1 clove of garlic
pinch of cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste

Rinse and slice your tomato into very thin slices. Once cooled, peel and slice your egg. Score your avocado length and widthwise. Scoop the avocado out into a bowl and add cayenne, salt and pepper. Stir until well incorporated. Toast your bread. Cut the edge of your garlic clove to remove peel and rub the exposed garlic onto the toast. It is meant to give a slight hint of garlic without adding raw garlic to the recipe. You can mince the garlic for another recipe later. Spread avocado onto toast covering the slice of bread completely. Layer the tomatoes on top of the avocado and then layer the egg slices. Enjoy!
