Ingredients

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Optional: fresh cilantro or parsley for garnish

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Avocado: Halve the avocado and remove the pit. Scoop out the flesh into a bowl, add lime juice, and mash to your preferred consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Poach the Egg: Heat water in a small pot to a gentle simmer. Crack the egg into a small bowl or cup and gently slide it into the simmering water. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until the white is set but the yolk remains soft. Use a slotted spoon to remove the egg from the water.
  3. Assemble the Bowl: Spread the mashed avocado at the bottom of your serving bowl. Gently place the poached egg on top of the avocado. Arrange the cherry tomato halves around the egg.
  4. Add Finishing Touches: Sprinkle chia seeds over the entire dish. If desired, garnish with fresh herbs like cilantro or parsley.
