A Riff On: Avocado Toast

Everyone and their mom loves avocado toast! Let’s face it, we eat with our eyes thanks to Instagram and the pop of green is just so pretty. I spotted a riff on this insta-fave last week on the Real Simple IG and I was determined to make it myself. It’s so simple I didn’t even need to look up the recipe – I did, however, use this as an excuse to buy my favorite Trader Joe’s Garlic Naan. In their photo, it looks like they used a flatbread or pita, but if given the opportunity, I’ll use garlic naan over any other flatbread. It’s just so darn yummy!


If you’re looking to make this at home – you’ll need:

2 Soft-Boiled Eggs
1 Piece of Trader Joe’s Garlic Naan (lightly toasted)
1 Cucumber
1 Haas Avocado
2 Spoons of Garlic Hummus
½ Lemon
Sprig of Dill

To soft-boil the eggs:
Bring water to a boil in a small pot.
Add eggs to water slowly.
Reduce the water to a simmer and let boil for 7 minutes for a slightly firm yolk.
Set a timer! If you’re like me, you really suck at timing things in your mind, even if you think you’re really good at it.
Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and run under cold water for 45 seconds.
Peel the egg.

Assembling the Ingredients:
Schmeer hummus onto toasted garlic naan.
Layer slices of cucumber over hummus.
Squeeze a little lemon juice over the cucumber.
Layer on slices of avocado.
Add a little salt and little more lemon juice.
Slice egg into 2 or 3 pieces and layer them on top of the avocado.
Add a dash of pepper and a few sprigs of dill.
Add more lemon juice to taste.
