Turmeric Deviled Scrambled Eggs with Avocado on Toast
Plain avocado toast will always be a delicious breakfast, but to really up the ante—and reap the anti-inflammatory benefits—a few extra ingredients are needed. This recipe smashes together a cookout fave (deviled eggs) with the all-star breakfast staple.
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp hot paprika
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/3 cup nut milk
2 thick slices of sourdough bread
Extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling
1 ripe avocado
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 tsp butter or coconut oil
Good pinch of dried red chili flakes
Sea salt flakes
1. Crack the eggs into bowl and beat with the spices and milk.
2. Preheat the broiler. Drizzle the sourdough slices with extra virgin olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt flakes, and place under the broiler.
3. Meanwhile, cut the avocado in half and remove the seed. Scoop out the flesh and mash it with the lemon juice and a little salt.
4. Melt the butter or coconut oil in a nonstick skillet over high heat and crack in the eggs along with a good pinch of salt. Let cook for several seconds until it starts to set on the bottom and then gently fold the eggs over and into one another. Do not stir the eggs. Remove from the heat when the mixture is still just slightly liquid.
5. Spread the toasted sourdough with the mashed avocado and spoon the scrambled eggs on top. Sprinkle with chili flakes and serve immediately.
