Looking for a 15 minute meal? This avocado toast with egg has a few unique tweaks that make for a tasty and easy breakfast, lunch or dinner. 



For the turmeric poached egg*

  • ¼ cup distilled white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • 2 large eggs

For the avocado toast

  • 2 thick slices artisan bread or Homemade Bread
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 to 2 radishes
  • Black sesame seeds
  • Chunky sea salt


  1. In a large saucepan, pour a few inches of water and bring it to a boil. Reduce to a gentle simmer and stir in the vinegar and turmeric.
  2. Crack an egg into a small bowl, then gently slide the egg into water. Wait about 30 seconds, then add the next egg. Allow to simmer for about 3 minutes, until the whites are set but the yolks are runny. 
  3. Line a plate with a paper towel. Remove the eggs from the pan using a slotted spoon, then allow them to drain while preparing the toast. (Throughout the process, take care with the turmeric water, as it can stain clothing.)
  4. Remove the avocado pit, scoop it out of the peel, and mash it with some salt using a fork. Spread it on the bread slices, then top with the egg, radishes, sesame seeds, and sea salt.


*Other options: Fried egg, Soft Boiled Egg or Instant Pot Soft Boiled Egg.
