Gwyneth Paltrow's Avocado Toast, Three Ways

Asian Avocado Toast

Asian Avocado Toast

Makes 1

  • • 1 slice of your favourite bread
  • • 1 tbsp Vegenaise spread (or mayonnaise)
  • • ¼ tsp sriracha
  • • ¼ tsp toasted sesame oil
  • • ¼ to ½ avocado, depending on size, sliced
  • • coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • • 1 7-minute egg (see recipe below), sliced
  • • Furikake seasoning (see recipe below)

Pop your bread in the toaster and combine the Vegenaise, sriracha and sesame oil in a small bowl. When the toast is ready, spread it with the sauce, arrange the avocado slices over the top and season with salt and pepper. Top with the egg and sprinkle with furikake.

Boiled Eggs

Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Add the egg, making sure it is completely submerged, and keep the water at a steady boil over mediumhigh heat for the required number of minutes (7 for this recipe; we highly recommend setting a timer). When the timer goes off, remove the egg and run it under cold water or plunge it briefly into an ice bath to stop the cooking. Use immediately or let cool and store in the fridge for up to 1 week. To reheat a soft-boiled egg, place it in a saucepan of simmering water for 1 minute.

Furikake

Makes about ¾ cup

  • • 2 toasted nori sheets
  • • 2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • • 2 tsp coconut sugar
  • • ½ tsp toasted sesame oil
  • • pinch of salt

Use your fingers to crumble the nori into very small pieces into a bowl, then add the remaining ingredients. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Spring Veggie Avocado Toast

In It’s All Easy, mother of two Gwyneth Paltrow says her house is a hub of activity. “While it can be a little hectic at times I absolutely love the energy and life of having old friends visiting and kids running around,” she says. To make meal time go more smoothly, she relies on quick solutions that are big on taste but have little-to-no sugar, fat or gluten. She’s assembled them all in her third cookbook, including on-thego options for work, school and soccer practice. — Chris Daniels
