Turmeric Poached Egg Avocado Toast

Looking for a 15 minute meal? This turmeric poached egg avocado toast is beautiful and can be whipped up in no time. A handful of ingredients transform into a delicious vegetarian recipe!


  • ¼ cup distilled white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 thick slices sourdough bread
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 to 2 radishes
  • Black sesame seeds
  • Chunky sea salt


In a large saucepan, pour a few inches of water and bring it to a boil. Reduce to a gentle simmer and stir in the vinegar and turmeric.

Crack an egg into a small bowl, then gently slide the egg into water. Wait about 30 seconds, then add the next egg. Allow to simmer for about 3 minutes, until the whites are set but the yolks are runny.

Line a plate with a paper towel. Remove the eggs from the pan using a slotted spoon, then allow them to drain while preparing the toast. (Throughout the process, take care with the turmeric water, as it can stain clothing.)

Cut the avocado in half and mash it with some salt using a fork. Spread it on the bread slices, then top with radishes, sesame seeds, and sea salt.
