Guacamole on Toast with Poached egg

Avocado on toast must be about the most photographed food on instagram! For the longest time I have avoided avocado as it is high FODMAP however a 20g portion (1/8 of an avocado) is actually low FODMAP (Monash University low FODMAP App). I’ve been making my own guacamole for a while when making burritos and one day I decided to try it on toast for breakfast with a poached egg and it’s amazing!


Guacamole Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 thumb-sized piece of fresh ginger, chopped finely
  • 1/8 of a red chilli pepper, chopped finely
  • 1/2 a tomato, deseeded and chopped in small chunks
  • a handful of chopped fresh coriander
  • the juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 1 tsp lactose free natural yoghurt for extra creaminess (optional)


  • 1-2 slices of bread* per person
  • 1 egg per person

*1 slice of wheat bread is low FODMAP, 2 slices of wheat or spelt sourdough  bread are also low FODMAP (Monash University low FODMAP App); if you have coeliac disease then use gluten free bread


  1. Boil water in a kettle.
  2. In the meantime, cut the avocado in half, remove the seed and scoop out the flesh.
  3. Mash the avocado with a fork.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients and mix together. Set aside.
  5. Fill half a pot of water with boiling water from a kettle and bring it to a simmer.
  6. Crack the egg in a cup.
  7. With a wooden spoon swirl the water and gently pour in the egg in the center.
  8. Cook for approximately 2 minutes for a soft oozing yolk. Remove from the pot using a slotted spoon.
  9. Toast the bread.
  10. Spread the bread with a total 20-25g of guacamole. It’s a thin spread but its packed with flavour so a little goes a long way!
  11. Top with the poach egg.
  12. You may sprinkle with some smoked paprika and fresh coriander.

    1. You can use more guacamole at dinner time with burritos to make the most of it. The guacamole I make is still good on day 3. Also is the advice about portion size given by Monash is per meal so you can utilise the avocado throughout the day.


  1. Yeah, I’m with Annetta. It’s a bit tricky. This post makes me want to try avocado toast again, though. That used to be a breakfast favorite!
