Fresh breakfast tostada .. what a way to start your morning. Fresh makes all the difference! I decided that Floridians shouldn’t have all of the fun, so I wanted to share this Florida inspired recipe that’ll  ensure that your morning starts off on the right note. For real.Fresh breakfast tostada .. what a way to start your morning. Fresh makes all the difference! Once you have the salsa made (and I like to make mine a day or two beforehand and let it sit so all of the flavors can mix together) this breakfast is no more complicated than frying up an egg and lightly toasting a tortilla. I recommend that you leave the yolks gooey and runny and make the tortillas yourself. Then you can even use a cookie cutter or a glass to cut them into egg-sized portions, just perfect for serving! After you lightly heat the tortilla, top with a generous mound of avocado, fresh salsa and your gooey egg. Cut open and enjoy!Fresh breakfast tostada .. what a way to start your morning.

    Yum! I live in Florida (Miami Beach) and enjoy the abundance of locally-grown fresh produce here year round. Tomatoes? I love Cuban Ropa Vieja (slow cooked shredded beef in a flavorful tomato-based sauce) or Vaca Frita (crispy shredded beef that I slow-cook with tomatoes for extra flavor — one of my Cuban co-workers gave me that tip!) Avocados go great with beef tongue tacos. Here’s some recipes for those dishes:

      Those sound so good, thanks for sharing! I’ll have to try the beef tongue. Last time we got our cow share it came with one but I just.. couldn’t bring myself to do it..

    I live in Brisbane, Australia where we can grow fresh produce all year round. In fact kale grows better in winter than in summer because the weather is too hot.

    I love to use avocados to make homemade guacamole: http://www.economiesofkale.com/2013/09/homemade-guacamole/

    And tomatoes are great in shakshuka (which uses tinned tomatoes so you can still enjoy it in winter!): http://www.economiesofkale.com/2012/12/shakshuka-eggs-baked-in-tomato-sauce/
