Try this Smashed Avocado Miso Toast with Poached Egg and Furikake for breakfast or brunch – it’s deliciously simple.
Have you heard of furikake? This summer, our family celebrated the graduation of our twin boys in Hawaii, one of our favorite places to vacation. It’s a long trip from the East Coast, but no one ever complains about traveling across the country to hang out by the blue waters of Hawaii.
During our stay, we ate out almost every night, and furikake seemed to be used on everything from fries to furikake crusted fish to popcorn. I’ve been missing our Hawaiian vacation and the food, so one of the first things I bought upon our return was a jar of furikake. I’ve been sprinkling it on just about everything, including eggs.
Furikake is a mix of seaweed and other ingredients that vary depending on the flavor – there are lots of different kinds, including kimchi and wasabi. I used to sprinkle furikake on rice to get my kids to eat more when they were young.
This Avocado Miso Toast with Poached Egg and Furikake is so easy to prepare, there’s no excuse not to enjoy a healthy breakfast that tantalizes your tastebuds.

I love adding furikake to anything! This toast looks so delicious!
Me too Lisa!
This looks delicious! Do you have a great recipe for furikake that you would share? I’ve just done a bit of reading to find out exactly what it is, and apparently commercially made ones have sugar and msg..Thanks!
Carolyn – you do have to check the ingredient labels carefully – I’ve found ones without msg. You could mix some toasted seaweed sheets (perhaps try putting in the food processor to make into smaller pieces) and sesame seeds together.
I love finding new ways to spice up breakfast. This really sounds fantastic! Hugs, Terra

Hawaii is one of my favorite vacation spots too! I’ve never heard of furikake, but from the sound of it I think I would want to sprinkle it on everything! I’ll have to see if I can find some on the internet! Love these avocado toasts 🙂
Love furikake and that you added it to miso avocado toast! That sounds so tasty especially with the poached egg too!
I had never heard of furikake–but I love nori, dulse and hiziki.
Can I make furikake at home?
Love your idea of miso and avo together.
Letty – you could pulse together nori,sesame seeds and some salt and pepper.

I too love furikake. This is one healthy and delicious breakfast.

What is Furikake???
Furikake is a Japanese mixture that comes in different flavors and seasonings – typically it has seaweed (like nori that’s in very small pieces), and toasted sesame seeds. Some have dried fish, and I even have a bottle of kimchi furikake. You can find it at Asian grocery stores or the internet.

I love avocado toast and furikake! Genius to put them together! An miso too! I’m definitely going to have to give this a go! Gorgeous!
Holy yum! What a surprise to mix avocado and miso together. This was so easy, quick and yummy. Thanks for the inspiration! I put a few slices of chinese sausage in there too. I bet this would be awesome in a banh mi mixed with those pickled daikons and carrots.
Thanks Dorothy – avocado and miso go together really well. Love your idea using this in banh mi!

Hello, what type of miso did you use? I only have shiro miso in my pantry…
I usually use the lighter or medium colored miso, not the dark kind, but anyone you have in your pantry should be fine.
