    Eggs with Avocado

    This recipe provides an excellent example of how to get healthy fats, such as those found in extra-virgin olive oil and avocado, with clean protein, such as that found in eggs (especially if they’re organic), in a single dish. It also provides an array of micronutrients, particularly vitamins A, B2 (riboflavin), B12 and D.

    4 eggs

    2 tbsp heavy cream

    freshly ground black pepper

    dash of cayenne pepper

    1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

    1 small red onion, chopped

    1 garlic clove, chopped

    1 tbsp butter

    3 tbsp cream cheese, cut into small cubes

    1 ripe avocado, sliced

    2 cups spinach

    1. Preheat the broiler. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream and peppers.
    2. Add oil to a nonstick skillet; when hot, sauté onion and garlic until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.
    3. Melt butter in the skillet and add egg mixture. As eggs cook, lift the edges with a spatula to allow uncooked mixture to seep underneath. When the bottom is set but the top is still moist, place cream cheese cubes and onion mixture over the eggs and place under the broiler for 2–3 minutes, checking frequently, until top is golden and puffy.
    4. Top with avocado and serve over a bed of spinach.

    Yields: 2–3 servings
