  • 2 leeks

  • 3 green onions

  • 2 tablespoons ghee (clarified butter), melted

  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Avocado Vinaigrette:

  • 1 ripe avocado, pitted, flesh scooped from skin

  • ¾ cup light olive oil

  • 1 lemon, juiced

  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • 2 eggs

  • ¼ cup sliced almonds, toasted

  • teaspoon red pepper flakes


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Discard green tops and the bottom 1/2 inch of the leeks. Cut leeks in half lengthwise.

  3. Place leeks and green onions on a sheet pan. Drizzle with ghee. Add sea salt and pepper.

  4. Roast in the preheated oven until browned, 15 to 20 minutes.

  5. Prepare vinaigrette by blending avocado, 3/4 cup olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, salt, and pepper thoroughly in a food processor.

  6. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Crack eggs into opposite sides of the skillet and cook until whites are barely set and yolks are still runny, 2 to 3 minutes.

  7. Remove leeks and onions from oven and top with the sunny-side up eggs. Sprinkle almonds and red pepper flakes on top. Finish with a drizzle of the avocado vinaigrette.
