On a recent trip to New York City I had brunch in Soho where I had the most amazing avocado toast. I’ve had avocado toast in so many different ways over the years, but this version I’m sharing today is extra special!
It’s layered with roasted red peppers, seared halloumi cheese and sliced avocado, and then topped with a 7-minute soft-boiled egg, sunflower seeds and micro-greens—YUM! I’ve been making this on repeat for the last few months. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!I’m excited for you to try it! And if you struggle with emotional eating and weight anxiety, I would love to welcome you to my Food Freedom workshop starting on September 20th.
How do you make the best avocado toast?
Because avocado toast only uses a few ingredients, you want to be sure you’re using the highest quality ingredients possible. For this recipe I used fresh bread from my local bakery, a ripe avocado, farm fresh eggs, organic jarred roasted peppers, microgreens from my local farmers market, and halloumi cheese.
How do you know if an avocado is ripe?
An avocado yields to gentle pressure when they’re ready to eat—if it’s overly ripe it will be too mushy to slice.
Is avocado toast healthy?
Yes! This recipe is a healthy combination of avocado (full of healthy fats, fiber and lots of vitamins and minerals, including magnesium, B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, and folate), a soft-boiled egg (loaded high-quality protein and good fats, and rich in vitamin B2, vitamin B12, vitamin D, selenium and iodine), roasted red peppers (high in vitamin C and other antioxidants) and halloumi cheese (a great source of protein and calcium).
