Avocado Eggs and Cantaloupe ~ a Raw and Vegan Breakfast


serves 2 ~ $2.42 per serving

 

ingredients
  • 2 zucchini ($1.00)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil ($.10)
  • 1 tablespoon agave ($.10)
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar ($.10)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 1/2 cantaloupe ($2.05)
  • 2 avocados ($1.49)
  • 2 tablespoons agave ($.20) {optional}
  • salt and pepper


I love avo eggs, and the sweet cantaloupe and savory zucchini strips really go well together. The zucchini strips need to be made a little bit ahead of time. I dehydrated mine just long enough to soften them, about two hours. These can be dehydrated overnight and put together the next morning.

Peel the zucchini and slice into very thin strips. This can be done on a mandoline slicer or with a sharp knife. In a small cup, whisk together the olive oil, agave, balsamic vinegar, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and liquid smoke. Pour over the zucchini strips (a lidded container works well, I use a zip lock box). Once coated, lay the zucchini on lined dehydrator sheets and dehydrate at 105 degrees overnight, or until softened.


To assemble, just slice the cantaloupe and wrap with the softened zucchini slices. Cut the avocados in half, put a dollop of agave in the center, and sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper.

  1. I've never heard of liquid smoke, and I'm not sure what they would call that in French (I'm in France), do you have any clue? Or a substitute? Thanks!
