I love experimenting with breakfast as I don’t eat it often when I’m on my days off or during the week. I don’t know, I tend to either skip breakfast and have a big lunch or go out for brunch. I need a few hours after I wake up before I really start to feel hungry.
When I last visited my bestie in Turkey 🇹🇷, her mum in law gave me her special homemade strawberry jam. I don’t eat jams that often, actually never but there’s something about her homemade jams that won me over.
Here’s what you need:
- Bread of your choice, toasted or not (up to you)
- Eggs, for poaching
- Fresh avocado 🥑 (cut in half, twist, open and remove the inside with a spoon 🥄)
- Plum tomatoes 🍅
- Fresh green chillies, chopped
- Salt and pepper, as per taste
There’s not really a method. Anyone can whip this one up. To make the smashed avocado, transfer the avocado in a bowl, add in the halved plum tomatoes, chopped green chillies, salt, pepper and a tablespoon or two of lemon juice. Smash/ mix it all up.
For the poached eggs, truth be told I use one of those fool proof concoctions where you crack the eggs into them and let them float in the boiling water until eggs are poached. Voila! Perfect poached eggs 🥚😆
Finally, it’s time to assemble your breakfast plate. Layer the smashed avo on top of the slices of bread and add the strawberry jam 🍓. I try to keep it rustic and that’s pretty much it folks! Enjoy this quick and easy plate of breakfast. ✌🏻
