Microgreens Avocado Toast

Mornings are the perfect time to set the foundation for a balanced, grounded day. We love a morning stretch and breath work with Merrimint in hand to loosen up tired hands, joints and shoulders. Within an hour of waking its best to follow this morning ritual with a light, nourishing breakfast.

Eating within an hour of waking up is ideal to balance blood sugar, and will impact cortisol (stress) hormones for the whole day to come. A "protein-rich breakfast is important because it stabilizes blood sugar, jumpstarts metabolism, and improves energy level, focus and mood for the day," explains Dr. Caitlin Gordon, owner of Amaluna Wellness in Boulder, Colorado.

The Perfect Microgreens Avocado Toast Recipe

Enter a world of healthful indulgence with our sumptuously rich and incredibly satisfying Microgreens Avocado Toast recipe. This eye-catching toast lends a golden opportunity to explore the magic that happens when the creaminess of avocados, the nutrient-packed power of microgreens, and the whole goodness of bread come together in beautiful culinary harmony.

The Layers of Health and Delight

Our simple but elegant Microgreens Avocado Toast recipe is the perfect foundation to a daily ritual for hormone health and wellness. Here are the essentials to the perfect setup:

Toasted Bread Base: We start with a slice of your favorite bread toasted to golden perfection, providing a crisp and hearty foundation for the flavorsome ride that awaits.

Avocado Luxury: Next, we layer on a generous slathering of mashed ripe avocado, a heart-healthy marvel that provides a velvety bed for the remaining ingredients and always leaves us yearning for the next bite.

Chia Seed Crunch: A sprinkle of chia seeds comes up next, offering a welcome contrast of texture along with an array of health benefits, from improving digestive health to being a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids.

Seasoned Perfection: A judicious sprinkle of salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes bring a warmth and spice that round out the flavors flawlessly.

Protein Boost: An egg cooked to your preference (poached, fried, over easy, or scrambled), delivering a protein punch that makes this dish even more satisfying and filling.

Microgreen Magic: Top off the toast with a verdant flourish of fresh microgreens, enriching this green dream with an additional layer of vitamins, minerals, and a tender crunch.

Your Avocado Toast Masterpiece

The synergistic assembly of all these ingredients results in a quick, easy, and nourishing meal – perfect for any time of the day. Simply toast your bread, top with your seasoned mashed avocado, scatter on chia seeds and red pepper flakes. To this, add an egg cooked to your liking, and finish with a handful of fresh microgreens. Voila! You have a deliciously healthy Microgreens Avocado Toast ready in minutes!

Custom Make Your Avocado Toast

Feel free to experiment with this basic recipe to make a personalized Microgreens Avocado Toast recipe that's unique to your palate. Add some garlic to your mashed avocado or sprinkle on some feta cheese for extra richness.

Feel like something sweet? Try adding some fresh berries or a drizzle of honey for a surprisingly delightful contrast.

You can cook your eggs however you would like to for this avocado toast recipe, but we love a runny yolk from a poached egg, a fried egg, or a sunny side up egg. You can also scramble your eggs, but for this recipe a soft scramble is ideal for texture.

How to Poach an Egg

To quickly poach an egg, you can use your electric pressure cooker. Place 1 cup of water in the bottom and add the rack to the insert. Spray a small ramekin or a silicone egg cup lightly with cooking spray or olive oil. Add egg to the cup and place on the rack. Cook on High pressure for 3 minutes and manually release pressure when done.

Spice it Up

  • Add your favorite hot sauce to make it even more spicy, or simply up the amount of red pepper flakes you use.
  • Spread a thin layer of goat cheese on the toast before adding the avocado for a tangy twist.
  • Don't eat eggs? Use tofu instead of egg on top for protein!
