Spring & Summer Avocado Toast
Yield: 1 serving (easy to multiply for as many servings as needed)
A simple twist makes this protein-rich meal refreshingly delicious´╝Źand extra easy.


  • 1 slice whole grain bread (use gluten-free if needed)
  • 1/3 -1/2 of a ripe Haas avocado (precise amount depends on personal preference and size of avocado)
  • 1 hard boiled egg, peeled and minced*
  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • Optional extras: hot sauce or salsa; slice of vine-ripened tomato; ham, cooked bacon or smoked salmon; fresh basil and/or chives


  1. Toast the bread (I like it crunchy both for the texture and ease of eating by hand), and then spread with the avocado. (I lightly mash it with a fork, but you can slice it if preferred).

    Spread the minced egg evenly over the avocado, sprinkle with salt, pepper and any optional extras. You may prefer to place some of the optional toppings, like the tomato or smoked salmon, under the egg instead of on top.

*If you happen to have an egg slicer, you can make quick work of mincing an egg by slicing it once, turning 90 degrees and slicing again. For an extra fine mince, you can carefully rotate the egg 90 degrees from bottom to top and slice on more time.
