Leave a comment

Living in Florida you get used to it being HOT…all the time! Sitting down and indulging in a big heavy meal just isn’t enjoyable in such hot temperatures. This light, flavorful and nutritious dish is perfect for this weekends brunch and the fresh ingredients give a great presentation if you’re entertaining guests.




  • 1 chunky slice of wholemeal bread (buy uncut so you can cut it yourself)
  • 1 large free-range egg
  • 1 tsp white vinegar
  • 1/4 avocado, sliced
  • salt and cracked black pepper, to serve
  • 1/2 tomato, sliced
  • A small handful of fresh basil
  • 1/2 clove garlic


  1. Toast the bread and rub one side lightly with half a clove of garlic
  2. Poach your egg

    How to poach an egg: Fill a wide, shallow pan with water to two-thirds full. Heat the water to a gentle simmer and add 1-2 tsp of vinegar (any will do but white won’t effect the flavour) Crack an egg into a bowl. Create a barely simmering whirlpool in the pan then gently slide the egg into the middle of the whirlpool, swirl the water around in a circular motion to help the egg hold its shape. Cook on a low simmer for approximately 3 minutes. Remove from the water with a slotted spoon and set down on a piece of kitchen paper to drain.

  3.  Top the toast with sliced tomato, avocado and the poached egg. Sprinkle with salt and cracked black pepper and top with fresh basil.
