I am all for trying difficult recipes, but sometimes simple is the answer. When I’m feeling lazy or short on time, I love smearing a ripe avocado on a piece of toast and topping it with an egg. Sometimes I’ll poach the egg, sometimes I’ll scramble it, sometimes I’ll fry it or hard-boil it. Whatever feels right! Most of my family members despise eggs, but they’re missing out. Eggs can be a really lovely, protein-rich meal. This Fried Egg + Avocado Toast is an old standby for me — I’ll eat it for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
This isn’t technically a recipe, I suppose, but more of a reminder that good, wholesome food doesn’t have to be complicated and time-consuming. Even I need to remember that from time to time. // susannah
