Avocado toast seems to be all the rage these days, so when we found ourselves one February weekend with all the right ingredients, we elected to serve it with poached eggs. Our version is quite simple: a hearty whole grain bread, fresh avocado, runny poached egg, cumin, topped with coarse salt and pepper.

Avocado Toast Recipe
- 4 slices whole grain toast
- 1 avocado
- 1/2 lemon
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- pinch of crushed red pepper
Toast 4 slices of whole grain bread. Meanwhile, bring about 2 inches of water to a boil in a saucepan. Add 1 tbsp of regular vinegar. Crack eggs into a bowl, and carefully drop them into the water one at a time. Cook each egg for 4 minutes, and remove with a slotted spoon. Gently rinse with water and set the eggs on a paper towel to remove any excess water.
Slice avocado and divide it between the 4 pieces of toast. Squeeze a little fresh lemon juice on top and sprinkle cumin, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper on top. Serve hot.
