Avocado Kale Tartine

Serves 1.


    Avocado Kale Tartine

    In my opinion, three ingredients that complete a savoury breakfast are avocado, kale, and eggs. I made this one morning when I was in the mood for something warm and fulfilling. You’ll feel like a Parisian with this open-faced sandwich!



    Don’t be afraid of the whole egg in this recipe. There is a common misconception that the egg yolk is somehow less healthy than the white. This couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, the yolk contains nearly half the protein content of the whole egg and it’s a rich source of nutrients, containing far more calcium, vitamin D, and folate than the white.


    Avocado Kale Tartine


    • 2 organic eggs
    • 3 Tbsp (45 mL) filtered water
    • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) coconut oil
    • 3 kale leaves, washed, stems removed, torn in bite-size pieces
    • 1 slice whole grain or gluten-free bread
    • 1/2 ripe avocado, peeled and sliced
    • A few slices of cucumber and radish or any crunchy vegetables you have on hand, for garnish
    • Sea salt and pepper
    • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) extra-virgin olive oil or hemp oil (optional)

    Meanwhile, toast bread.


    Place sliced avocado on 1 slice of toast. Top with kale scramble and any crunchy veggies. Season with sea salt and pepper, to taste, and add a drizzle of oil to garnish, if desired.

    Crab and Apple Stuffed Endive Boats

    Rich, tasty crab, sweet apple, licorice-scented tarragon, and a touch of lemon make these stuffed endives a classy crowd pleaser. The filling is easily prepared in advance and can be chilled until ready to serve, but this dish also comes together quickly enough to be done right before stuffing into leaves. Keeping your boats upright If you want the endive boats to sit neatly on the dish or platter without tipping, you can make a small slice at the bottom of each leaf before filling to give it a flat surface to rest on. Just make sure not to penetrate too deeply into the wall of the leaf.
