Eats: Avocado Tartine

A few days ago I posted about my delicious brunch from Tatte Bakery + Cafe at Beacon Hill in Boston. Jared and I were craving it this morning so we attempted to recreate it in our own kitchen. It was delicious! 

Bread: Rye from Borealis Breads. I actually wish I hadn't toasted the bread. I think it was harder to eat this way with a fork and knife. I ended up eating it with my hands. If the bread was soft, it would have been a much better consistency.

I mashed up 1 1/2 avocado with a bit of lemon juice, salt and pepper. I wanted to keep some of the chunkiness without it being too smooth. This amount of avocado spread was perfect for two servings.

While the eggs cooked, I put the toasted bread on top of a bed of spinach and arugula. I wish I had drizzled some lemon juice or olive oil on top of the greens. Next time! 

I wanted to eat it before I even put the egg on top. SO GOOD

Okay...so I wanted to make an over-easy egg but I messed up. It was still delicious...but wait until you see the correct one!

Meanwhile, Jared was making a mean cup of pour over coffee.

Told ya! Doesn't that look delicious? It was!

*heart eyes*

 

The egg, avocado, rye and greens are a delicious and healthy combination. I just recently started to cook more and more and I am happy to have easy recipes to make. Try this recipe out if you like what you see! 

 

How I made it:

Yields: 2 Servings

Prep Time: Approx. 5 Minutes

Cook Time: 10 Minutes

Lemon Juice

Salt and Pepper

1 cup Spinach

1 cup Arugula

4 Eggs

1 1/2 or 2 Avocados

4 Slices of Bread, your choice (I used Rye)

Cut and slice avocados in half and remove pit. In a small bowl, use a spoon to cut up avocados into a smooth yet chunky mixture. Add 1-2 squirts of lemon juice and salt and pepper. Set aside. Place a half cup of greens onto each plate. Heat stove and cook two eggs to your liking. Optional: while eggs cook, lightly toast bread. Place bread on top of greens and top with avocado spread. When eggs are cooked, place on top of plate and lightly salt.
