  1. Heat a large frying pan, add the pumpkin seeds and toast for a few mins until they crack and pop, then tip out into a bowl and set aside. Add the chorizo and cook for 5 mins until it releases some of its oils and becomes crisp. Meanwhile, roughly mash the avocado with the lime juice, half the coriander and a pinch of salt.

  2. Heat a griddle pan and cook the bread for a few mins each side, or pop in the toaster. Push the chorizo to the edge of the frying pan, crack in the eggs and fry to your liking.

  3. To serve, divide the toast between 2 plates, spread with the mashed avocado, and pile on the chorizo, fried eggs and pumpkin seeds. Scatter with the remaining coriander.

The first meal from my new file of GF recipes in a determined bid to Fight The Flab. . Crispy bacon would earn this the final star but, obsessed as they are with all things porky here in Spain, they don't do bacon. Hit the spot. Very filling, esp as I had the whole avo - they sell them well ripe here and avos never keep, in my experience, once halved.

Made this for lunch and really enjoyed it. Made for just myself, I mashed one whole avocado into my toasted bread, sprinkled on some lime juice, layered up some sliced smoked ham and chorizo slices, popped a fried egg (still runny) on top, then scattered over some poppy seeds, almonds, and sunflower seeds. Adapted for what I had in. Very yummy, will make again.

Very fresh flavour with the lime and coriander. The pumpkin seeds add a nice bite too. I had a few cooked baby potatoes, I cut them up and fried them off with the chorizo. A very tasty and substantial breakfast or brunch. Add coffee and maybe half a grapefruit for a delicious meal!

This was really good. I made it as a breakfast and it really made me feel good at the start of the day.

I had this for dinner tonight and it was delicious. I didn't have any pumpkin seeds, but we still really enjoyed it. I added a few chopped tomatoes to the avocado and had hot chilli sauce on mine. Very nice especially as the effort to taste ratio was excellent - minimum time - lots of flavour
