Three Ways To Add Avo To Your Breakfast

If you add avo to your first meal of the day, you will definitely dine like a king (or queen in our case).

  1. Avocado Frittata With Sundried Tomatoes, Feta & Olives

Serves 4
Ingredients

1/2 cup spring onions, chopped

2 to 3 tsp. avocado oil

6 large eggs

125 ml milk

1/2 tsp. dried mixed herbs

3/4 tsp. salt

1 avocado, diced

2 tsp. lemon juice

100 g feta cheese, crumbled

1/3 cup Kalamata olives, chopped

1/2 sundried tomato, chopped

Rocket leaves to serve

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. In a non-stick pan with an ovenproof handle, sauté the onions in the oil until soft – about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat. Beat together the eggs, milk, mixed herbs and salt. Gently toss the avocado with lemon juice. When the oven is hot, evenly scatter half the avocado, cheese, olives and sundried tomatoes over the sautéed onion. Pour egg mixture into the pan taking care not to disturb the other ingredients. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the frittata is set firm and the top lightly browned. Scatter the remaining ingredients over the top and bake for a further 10 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve with rocket leaves. Click here to read more.
