Recipe and Photos by Caitlin Levin
Caitlin Levin is a chef and a food stylist and also happens to be one of my best friends. I’m welcoming her as a new columnist here–she will be sharing yummies with *all of us* a few times a month (she’s been sharing yummies with me since 1999!)
We are calling the column Mangiona because she and I met on our year abroad in Italy. The word Mangione translates to the female form of ‘big eater’ in Italian–something that I have been called on more than one occasion–especially when Caitlin’s cooking is involved 😛
I hope you enjoy the recipes–we will focus on easy, healthy mostly vegetarian fair around here–cause that’s just my steeze! I’m already craving this l’il snack–and Caits knows I need my Omega 3’s and proteins right now, so this breaky is right up my pregnant lady ally!
Please help me in giving Caitlin a very warm welcome.
Take it away Caits!:
Quick, healthy and easy snacks is my starting point this week….
Avo + Egg Brakfast Pizza
Here’s what you’ll need:
1. Greek or pocketless pita, or any kind of flat bread
3. Ripe avocado
4. Organic egg
5. Sea salt, pepper, chili flakes, cumin, cumin seed, extra virgin olive oil
Here’s what you do:
Toast pita until crisp, mash avocado and spread on pita, drizzle with a dash of lemon, olive oil and spices, place egg cooked to your liking on top and serve.
Best as healthy breakfast, afternoon snack or Sunday night dinner!
Add prosciutto or a sprinkling of feta over the top for a richer snack.
