Re: Avocado recipes?

Avocado is actually delicious when sliced and pan seared in olive oil with a little salt n' pepper ... add to eggs for or whatever else you like...

Re: Avocado recipes?

Avocado mashed into yougurt with a little nutmeg tastes like mango. In fact, in blind taste tests people consistently guess mango. Helps if you put a touch of maple syrrup in it, but not necessary. Only works with Haas avocado.

Best guacamole: mash avocado with sea salt, the juice from 1 or 2 limes and a minced habanero pepper (leave out the onion and tomato and whatever other crap).

Cold avocado soup: blend avocado with chicken stock, yogurt and some fine herbs (some folks like dill, but I prefer fresh oregano and thyme). Serve with ice.

Mexican green salsa: boil green tomato with garlic and onion, blend with green chile peppers, cilantro and avocado. Make it spicy and use within a day.

Re: Avocado recipes?

There's a great recipe for a Bacon, Egg, Avocado, and Tomato salad.

2-3 hard boiled eggs, 1 mashed avocado, 1 diced medium tomato, couple strips of bacon. Bam. Delicious. I don't fancy it up at all and call it a salad. I just mash it all into the same bowl and eat.
