Come back to my favorite dish for breakfast, avocado toast! This menu is an effortless breakfast and full of healthy. Avocado is my favorite fruit (apple also included) because when i eat avocado i fell full until lunch time and push back my appetite. Sometimes avocado called super food because it owns a lot of nutrients and antioxidants such as folic acid, omega 3, magnesium, potassium, lutein and fiber.
Avocado rich in vitamins A, C, D, E, K and B complex. Beside the flesh that rich in nutrients, avocado seed also contributes to our healthy body because rich in soluble fiber, healthy greases and prevent digestive disease. Healthy greases in flesh and seed actually reduce risk of heart disease and stroke. I have added avocado on breakfast since on diet program to lose weight. Avocado can be eaten in multiple ways and it can be added to other food such as bread (avocado become replacement of butter on top of bread). Use avocado to add variety to your meal menu everyday. You can use any kind of avocado, most commonly found around the world is Hass variety.
I watched a video on youtube from Gordon Ramsay. He is my favorite chef who inspire me to cooking and keep trying a new recipe. The title of those video is “Gordon Ramsay’s avocado on toast with a twist”. You can type and find on youtube. On those video he make avocado toast with sour dough bread. I prefer to use whole grain bread/gluten free baguette. If you not on diet you can use reguler white bread with or without crust.
He just make avocado toast, sometimes you can playing a game with sunny side up, scrambled egg or various toppings. Gordon grilled the bread on a grill, i choose to toast with oven at 130° C for 10 minutes. If you have toaster, use it. Before you toast, dont forget to preheat the oven for 3-5 minutes. Oven will make the bread more crispy and golden brown (when you grill the bread, a black line will appear as a sign of burnt bread). Olive oil isn’t added on bread to prevent bread to be too oily. Meanwhile the bread has been processing, i was prepare the avocado. Cut the avocado with sharp knife, take the seed, cut into quarters and take the flesh. I like to mash the avocado beside just slicing and put on the top of the bread. I mash avocado with the back of fork and place in a bowl. After that, i give seasoning with ingredient same like in those video (sea salt, pepper, lemon juice). Gordon make separated mixture (shredded lemon skin and the seasoning) and put on the top of avocado. I didn’t do this process because i dont like look too full in my plate.
Sometimes, i give a pinch of cinnamon as source of antioxidants. Gordon ramsay add flax seed and chili pepper, i dont have flax seed so i replace with chia seed. This seed is rich in fiber, antioxidant and protein but low in calories. Perfect choice for people on diet! I am preparing a plate, arrange the bread had toasted and give mashed avocado on the top of it. I add chia seed and drizzle with olive oil. Scramble egg also put on the plate.
You can serve and eat as breakfast/snack with your family!
