Ingredients:
1 ripe avocado, pit removed and mashed
1/2 a lime, juiced
1 tomato, sliced
1 egg, poached
Salt and pepper to taste
1 slice of bread, toasted (I use spelt flour bread, but you can use any type of bread.)

Method:
1. Mash the avocado with a fork. Add the juice of half a lime and salt and pepper to taste.
2. Toast your bread to the desired doneness and smear the avocado on the toast.
3. Add a few slices of tomato.

How To Poach The Egg:
1. Bring 4 cups of water to a simmering boil. Add 2 tablespoons of white vinegar and a little salt.
2. Crack the egg into another bowl.
3. With a whisk, start swirling the water to create a gentle whirlpool. 
4. Carefully add your egg to the water and you will notice that the egg white will swirl with the water and wrap around the yolk. After 1 minute turn off your stove and leave the egg in the water for an additional 3 minutes. (Do not touch the egg).
5. Carefully scoop out the egg.

Finally:
Place the poached egg gently on top of the tomato and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and a little red chili powder for an extra kick of flavour.  Enjoy!
