Avocado and Poached egg on Toast with Nibbly Nuts

One of my new favourite lunches is avocado on toast with one, sometimes two poached eggs on toast.  I don't know why I have never tried this before, but it is amazing, to follow I have a pot of mixed nuts, raisins and apricots.


                One or two eggs

                Saucepan of boiling water

               1/2 ripe avocado

               2 slices of gluten free bread

               4 dried apricots either whole or chopped into pieces

               A small handful of raisins or sultanas

               A few almonds, cashew, pistachio nuts (My husband likes walnuts as well, but I'm not keen on those)


              Chop apricots if you want small pieces or just put them whole into a pot/bowl, add a small handful of each nut you are having then add the raisins/sultanas and give a little mix.

              Boil a saucepan of water, when it's boiling stir vigorously to make a whirlpool, then drop your egg into the water and turn the heat right down.

              Pop your bread into a toaster

              Split your ripe avocado in half, put the half with the stone still in back into a bag and into the fridge for another time, and spread the soft green flesh of the half without a stone over your toast (discard the skin).

             Use a slotted spoon to remove your poached egg and put it onto your avocado toast.

             If you're having two poached eggs, you can either now cook a second one in the same way as the first, or if you're not fussy about how they look you can cook two at the same time.  I find that by the time my toast has popped and I've spread the avocado onto it my egg has cooked, I like the yolk to still be runny.

Avocados are said to be very nutritious, it is high in healthy fats and provides you with many of your daily vitamins.
