Next level avocado toast

I am always interested in  food trends but more on how I can alter them to fit my own tastes. I add an egg and salad to turn it into a hearty meal and add extra flavours. Tahini holds a special place in my heart. Having practically grown up in the middle east, I am obsessed with the flavours in their cuisine and sesame paste brings me right back ‘home’.    


  • Ripe avocado
  • Whole wheat toast
  • One egg
  • arugula salad
  • Tahini
  • Lemon
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Chili flakes

Mise en place*

  1. Poach egg. (a easy how to will follow shortly)
  2. Toast the whole wheat bread.
  3. Make tahini dressing by mixing one tablespoon of tahini with some lemon juice. 

Where the magic happens

  1. Scoop out and mash the avocado on the whole wheat toast.
  2. Top with as much arugula as can fit.
  3. Carefully place the poached egg on top.
  4. Spread the tahini dressing on top.
  5. Season with salt, pepper and chili flakes to taste.
  6. Cut the poached egg and watch all that lovely gooeyness flow out.

*Mise en place is a term used in cooking which when translated means “putting in place.” These are all the preparations that are done before cooking can take place. I put this in a different section because not only will it save you time and stress, but it helps in decreasing mistakes during cooking.
