Breakfast of Champions

Multi-Grain Tortilla with 
Avocado & Sauteed Zucchini and Onion

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, or so they say. But the usual morning offerings can leave a bit to be desired when eaten day in & day out. Have a perfectly ripe avocado on hand? Why not exchange your usual bowl of cereal or oatmeal for this? 

1 multi-grain tortilla (i like mission brand)
1 tsp olive oil
1 small zucchini
1/4 white onion
1/2 avocado
chopped cilantro
hot sauce of your choosing
salt & pepper to taste
yield: 1 serving

1. warm both sides of the tortilla in a cast iron skillet over low heat. when using a cast iron skillet the tortilla will absorb a range of flavors that lend a bit of depth to the taste.

2. warm the olive oil in a non-stick pan. meanwhile, cut the zucchini into thin coins & dice the onion. then add the vegetables to the olive oil & saute until onions brown a bit.

3. smash the avocado into the warmed tortilla with the back of a fork. sprinkle with salt & pepper to taste.

4. layer the sauteed vegetables over the avocado & garnish with chopped cilantro and the hot sauce of your choosing.
