Ingredients (makes 2 servings)
1 avocado, peeled, seeded, and cut into chunks
½ to 1 tsp. matcha powder (add to your liking)
2 pieces of bread, toasted
2 tablespoon olive oil or butter
Toppings: olive oil, salt, and black sesame seeds
In a small bowl, mash together the avocado and matcha powder with a fork. Divide between the two pieces of toast.
In a small skillet, heat one tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat. Crack the egg into a small cup or bowl, then gently pour into the skillet, leaving the egg as whole as possible.
Continue to fry, gently shaking the pan, spooning the hot oil over the egg yolk to cook through. Remove egg when cooked to your liking- about 3 minutes for runny yolks, 5 to 6 minutes for more set eggs. Repeat with second egg.
Place the fried eggs on top of the pieces of avocado toast. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and black sesame seeds and serve.
