- 4 (6-inch) whole grain tortillas (recipe for tortillas)
- 4( free-range) eggs
- 2 avocados, peeled and seed removed
- 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar (optional: freshly squeezed lemon juice)
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Stack tortillas and wrap in foil. Heat in oven for 10 minutes. Optional: Wrap tortillas in slightly damp paper towels and microwave for 30 seconds.
Combine avocado, 1 teaspoon olive oil, and vinegar in a bowl. Set aside.
In a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, add 2 teaspoons olive oil and heat just until hot, but not smoking. Gently add eggs, one at a time, taking care not to break the yolks. Cook just until whites are set and yolks are slightly thickened.
In the meantime, evenly distribute mixture over warmed tortillas. Place eggs on top of avocado mixture. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roll into a wrap, if desired.
