Budget Meal: Avocado Egg Salad (with Chicken Patties)

Ingredients
  • 1 ripe avocado (small – medium)
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/8 cup chopped cucumber
  • cilantro
  • fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp coriander (optional)
  • sea salt & pepper
  • 1 tbsp 2% Greek yogurt (IF budget allows)
Steps
  1. Boil eggs.  When finished boiling, immediately place in ice cold water, which will help with peeling.
  2. Remove the pit from the avocado and carve out the contents of the avocado into a bowl.  Mash with a fork.
  3. Peel the eggs and slice open.  Remove the yolk and save for later or discard.  Dice the egg white into small pieces.
  4. Add cucumber, cilantro, lime juice and mix with a fork.  Season to taste.
