I never fathomed baking an avocado — the thought of it actually puts me off. But after seeing the avocado-egg image appearing on my favorite food blogs, I decided to try it out for myself (with a bit of a twist). This recipe is super easy and quite delicious. It includes two healthy fats: avocado and egg yolk. With some sheep's milk feta cheese and a dash of spice, it goes without saying that I was pleasantly surprised!

Recipe: Baked Avocado-Egg Bowl

Serves 2

What You'll Need:

1 avocado
2 eggs
2 ounces feta cheese
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
Dash of salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes

What To Do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Slice the avocado lengthwise, twist the two sides, and pull apart. Remove the pit.
  3. Make the hole in the middle of each half of the fruit a bit bigger by scraping out some of the meat with a spoon. (This is so that the hole can accommodate the whole eggs!)
  4. Lay the avocado halves skin-side down in a baking dish.
  5. Carefully crack one egg in each avocado half's core.
  6. Season with salt and pepper, and drop pieces of the feta cheese on top of the egg.
  7. Place the baking dish in the oven for 15 minutes, or until the egg is cooked to your liking.
  8. Season with the red pepper flakes and serve with chopped parsley.
