Kumara Burger, Poached egg & Avocado

A nutrient packed dish for an active weekend brekkie!  The veggie burgers are really handy to have in the fridge - we recommend always having some handy as a kitchen staple alongside the eggs and avos.   

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time : 15 minutes

Serve 4


1 packet Kumara Burgers

Extra Virgin Avocado Oil

4 free range eggs

A drop of white vinegar

2 cups FRESH GROWER baby spinach


Portobello mushrooms


2 avocados

Juice of 1 lemon

1 tsp smoked paprika



To garnish

fresh thyme, cress

A handful of Wild Garlic /Garlic chives

Extra Virgin Avocado Oil


  1. Heat oven to 180C and line a baking tray with parchment.

  2. Lay the portobello mushrooms on the tray and top with garlic, thyme, avocado oil, salt and pepper. Bake for 20-30 minutes.

  3. Cook the kumara burgers in a frypan or barbeque with a drizzle of extra virgin avocado oil. Keep warm.

  4. Wilt spinach in slightly salted water and refresh. Drain and squeeze excess water out.

  5. In a bowl, smash the avocado flesh with a fork with lemon juice, salt, black pepper and paprika.

  6. Poach eggs. One at a time. In a saucepan, bring at least 5 cm deep water to a simmer. Add a drop of vinegar. Stir the water to create a gentle whirlpool to help the egg white to wrap around the yolk. Break the egg in a small bowl then gently tip it in the centre. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until the egg white is set.  Lift the egg out with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper. Repeat.

  7. Place a kumara burger on a serving plate. Top with spinach, mushroom, avo smash and poached egg. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, garnish with garlic chives and thyme -  drizzle of extra virgin avocado oil.
