Find it difficult to keep your avocados ripe? As soon as they are ripe (if they feel a little bit soft and are dark in colour), put them in the fridge and they will stay ripe for about a week or so!

Option #1: Classic Avo Toast

  • Salt, to taste

  • Garlic/garlic powder (optional, but recommended)

  2. In a bowl, mash the avocado until there are a few small chunks remaining

  3. Add nutritional yeast, salsa and lemon and mix together well

  4. Add salt and garlic, mix and set aside

  5. Toast your piece of bread

  6. Once the egg has been on the heat for 14 minutes, remove from heat and let cold water run over it for a couple minutes

  7. Crack on a flat, hard surface and peel off the shell

  8. Spread the avocado mixture out on the piece of bread and add the sliced boiled egg on top. Garnish with sprouts, if desired!
