  • Favorite receipe with Avocados?



    I've never been a fan but trying to expand my taste buds and have two Avocados need to use up before I leave for Florida tomorrow.


    I'd love some of your favorite recipes with Avocado..dips maybe?

    Well, basic guacamole is yummy, I like to mix up chopped avocados with flaked crabmeat and a vinegar dressing.


    Although most times i just dice it up, drizzle with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper and eat it up!

      Guacamole, definitely yes. But if you're not a big fan, just chop it up and add it to your dalad. You probably won't notice it when eating w/ other veggies. Or add it to your smoothie. SassaFrass had a recipe for avocado icecream here.

        This is totally different, but there's a bunch of recipe's out there for Avocado chocolate mousse and I've heard it's fantastic. Most of them combine avocado with maple syrup, cocoa, and sometimes coconut oil, vanilla essence etc...


        I haven't tried any of the recipe's yet, but have been thinking about it for a while. I'd replace the syrup w/ stevia or equivalent, but I loooove the idea of this as a semi-primal treat. Here's some links:

        If you do try it let me know...I'm dying to find out if it's any good.

          Simply add to ceviche. For impressive presentation, slide avocados in half, discard pit, peel off skin, take tiny slice off the rounded portion so they don't wobble when you plate them, and fill hollows with ceviche.

          Everything in moderation, including moderation.

            A very popular in the tropics serving for avo's is dice, sugar, and lemon or lime juice. Now, obviously, sugar is not going on my plate, so I use xylitol or ethritol. Stevia is just too conentrated to sprinkle uniformly.


            I just got another big Florida avo yesterday. They are coming into season, so keep an eye out in your stores for "alligator pears." Often called green skin avos. They aren't as common as the expensive, commodity controlled as Haas, but every bit as good.

              OtB - that's making me pine for my days in the Sunshine State. Loved those Florida avos.


              My fave is a variant on yours - split and pit the avocado. spritz with lemon or lime and some salt (hot sauce too if you're in the mood). Scoop with a grapefruit spoon and eat.

                I find it's a great addition to turkey/chicken salad. I crock-potted a turkey breast with some curry (delish!) and then mixed the leftover turkey with a little mayo and avocado. You can either dice up the avocado or mash it in with the mayo. Really tasty combination - but I LOVE avocado. I also do the same with egg salad.


                Basically anytime something calls for mayo, I'll use a little less mayo and mash avocado in with it.

                  its not my favourite and I dont do it all the time, but I love the chocolate pudding made with avocado, cocoa, vanilla, cinnamon and a little sweetener(poison) of choice.

                    I second the avocado pudding!!! Third, maybe? ANyway... I made mine with avocado, cocoa powder, stevia, vanilla. It was super tasty.


                    Also if you have any greens you could do a variant of this (from my diary, I made this on Friday):


                    Kale Slaw (actually a vegan[not that I advocate that]/raw recipe!)

                    4 c Kale, veins removed and chopped

                    1 small avocado

                    1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

                    1 round T sun dried tomatoes, chopped

                    1 T shallot chopped

                    oil (any kind) if needed

                    S&P to taste

                    Put all in bowl and mash up with hands! Thats it! Eat within a couple hours or the avo will brown. THIS IS SO GOOD!!!!

                    Life on Earth may be punishing, but it includes an annual free trip around the sun!

                      1 chopped hard-boiled egg, 1/2 sliced (or chopped avacado) and walnuts, a little apple-cider vinegar (to taste) and S&P to taste if your so inclined. Can either be eaten as-is (usually for breakfast in my house) or over salad when you want something a little different on top.


                      I also use it as a plain spread to replace mayo in lettuce wraps.

                          Makes me hate the fact that avocados are getting too dang pricey in NYC. I can eat a whole one in one sitting without thinking twice, so at $2-2.50 each this habit can get pricey.


                          *sigh*

                            Kick chippers out of the club! Jus' kidding....


                            The price of avocados is artificially high. I can't speak to current matters but I recall reading when I lived in LA in the 80's about the "market order" system. They do the same thing with citrus and I'll bet a lot of other products.


                            Although it is the Dept of Ag that says how many of what can reach the market, they system is really a creation of the growers to keep prices high. Back then, in the 80's, a box of CA avo's cost like $33 in Western Canada, Mexican ones were maybe $8. That much difference was not in the cost of growing.


                            I won't buy Haas. What a ripoff.

                              i love this:

                              dice the avocados (they really have to be ripe and creamy)

                              dice a pear

                              roast some pinenuts

                              mix together and add a bit of lemonjuice

                              challenge yourself
