Avocado Toast with poached eggs, Zaatar, arugula, radish and meyer lemon. A simple delicious breakfast! Feel free to keep this vegan, omitting the eggs!


Units Scale
  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 1 lemon- zest and juice (or use meyer lemon)
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil – divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 slices wholesome bread
  • 1/2 cup baby arugula
  • 4 radishes, very thinly sliced
  • 2 eggs (large) – cracked into a small bowl ( eggs are optional-see notes)
  • pinch salt and pepper
  • generous pinch Zaatar spice (or sub cumin, sumac, or coriander)
  • Aleppo chili flakes (optional)
  • zhoug sauce ( optional)


  1. Set a medium pot, filled with 2-3  inches of lightly salted water with a teaspoon of white vinegar (optional) to boil on the stove. Crack the eggs into a bowl, taking care to keep yolks intact, set aside.
  2. Cut the avocado in half, remove the seed and scoop out the flesh into a small bowl. Add 1 teaspoon zest, the juice from half a lemon, 2 teaspoons oil, salt and pepper and stir and mash with a fork to combine. It does not need to be smooth. Taste. Adjust salt, you want this to be slightly salty and lemony.
  3. Toast the bread.
  4. Once the water is boiling turn heat down so it’s just simmering. Gently slip the the Eggs right into the simmering water.  Cook for 2-3 minutes or until egg white is set. Turn heat off.
  5. Spread 1/2 of the avocado mixture on the toast. Top with sliced radish. Top with a mound of baby arugula. Drizzle with olive oil, a little lemon, and salt.
  6. Using a slotted spoon, loosen the egg carefully from the pan and place the poached egg over the dressed arugula.
  7. Sprinkle the Egg with salt, pepper and a generous pinch of Zaatar spice.
  8. Add aleppo chili flakes if you like or a drizzle of zhoug or gremolata.
  9. Serve immediately while yolks are still warm!


If keeping this vegan, omit the eggs and sprinkle with zaatar spice.  Zhoug is nice here too!
