  1. Place avocado, mint, lemon juice and pepper in a small bowl and roughly mash with a fork. Add feta, cherry tomatoes and red onion and toss lightly. Set aside.
  2. To soft boil an egg: Fill a medium-size saucepan with water and bring to the boil. Gently place eggs in boiling water and boil for 6-7 minutes. Gently remove from pot and when cool to the touch, shell the egg, slice in half.

  4. Divide the avocado smash and multigrain toast between the 4 plates. Top each with 2 eggs and finish with cracked pepper.

Tip: Poached eggs are a delicious alternative for this dish.

Including healthier fats in your diet, like monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats (omega-3 and omega-6), helps to reduce the risk of heart disease. Avocado is a great source of monounsaturated fat.
