Avocado Toast with Herbed Tomato & a Runny Fried Egg
What you need
1-2 slices avocado bread (recipe below), toasted in a toaster or sanswhich press

A few stems of coriander + a few stems of parsley, leafs removed and chopped finely
1 tbsp raw organic hemp seeds
1-2 organic eggs, pan fried in a non-stick pan
Cracked pepper, chilli flakes to taste OR a sprinkle of nutritional yeast
Toast your slice/s of avocado bread, may need to be toasted twice for extra crunchiness.
Heat a small non-stick pan (if not non-stick or would like some oil, add a small amount of coconut oil) & crack your egg/s into the warmed pan. Once the egg whites have cooked through (no longer transparent) around 3- 5 minutes) remove from the heat. If you like your yollk hard, keep cooking!
Chop your tomato and herbs & in a small bowl mix together to combine evenly.
Remove toast from the toaster, place on your plate. Your choice to add your tomato or your egg first. Assemble and sprinkle hemp seeds on top. Add cracked pepper, chilli flakes or nutritional yeast.

2x large avocado (haas or other)
1x cup buckwheat flour (can substitute for other flour)
3tbsp psyllium husks
1tsp pink himilayan rock salt
1/2 cup pepitas + extra for topping
1/3 cup LSA (Linseed, sunflower and almond meal) or plain linseed meal
Sesame seeds for topping (can use a mixture of seeds e.g. linseeds, sunflower, pepitas, buckwheat. quinoa)
Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees celsius. Line a medium loaf tin with baking paper
Cut the avo's through the centre, remove core and scoop out flesh from all 4 quarters into a blender. Blend until smooth.
In a bowl add all your dry ingredients except pepitas (buckwheat flour, psyllium, salt, LSA) and mix together.
Add dry ingredients to the blender and mix until a moist dough is formed.
Now add in pepitas and slowly mix in (so they don't get chopped up too much).
Scoop mixture into the prepared loaf tin and smooth out the top with a spatula or back of a spoon. Sprinkle pepitas and sesame seeds (or mixed seeds) on top of loaf and press down to make them stick into mixture.
Place loaf tin into the oven and bake for 1 hour. You may need more to ensure the middle is cooked through.
It is hard to tell when it is cooked because it will still be a moist loaf due to the avo however, when the top is browned & roughly after around 1 hour, 15 minutes max. it should definately be done. Another thing to note is that when you toast the loaf again (in a toaster or sandwhich press), it will cook it a little further too!
