Love avocado toast? Enjoy some healthy and fun food art with Sunny Eggs and Avocado Trees.
I love playing with my food. I never really thought about it much before I started taking food photos. Now whenever I see a picture of food art, it fascinates me. Each month I participate in The Recipe Redux where I create a recipe based on a theme. This round, we were prompted to “Get Your Fruits and Veggies in Shape” by showing how to serve the bounty of gardens and orchards in shapes like ribbons, noodles, cut-outs, or other creative cuts. I thought about playing around with cookie cutters or my spiralizer. Then the inspiration hit me! Enter my Sunny Eggs and Avocado Trees.
Any parent knows that feeling when your child comes home from school with ANOTHER fundraising catalog: gift wrap, candles, and for me the dreaded candy or cheesecake. Sigh. Last year, my daughter came home with an awesome catalog filled with kitchen gadgets, hallelujah! Included was this adorable cloud shaped silicon egg shaper. Sold!
I’m a huge fan of runny eggs on top of avocado toast. This is just another super fun way of presenting it. Perfect for any meal of the day, it’s very satisfying thanks to the protein, whole grains and healthy fats. Get the kids to help you cut and decorate the trees, it’s a wholesome meal for every member of the family.
