3 Ways to Eat Avocados

3 Ways to Eat Avocados

fun fact

Avocados are a stone fruit. Not that it makes any difference; a rose by any other name…

another fun fact

The majority of people in Greece do not like avocados. And I made it my mission to find out why. Turns out they treat it as a fruit (which is actually accurate, please refer to fun fact 1) but they are turned off by its lack of sweetness as they were expecting a more juicy, stereotypical kind of fruit. They never realised it’s supposed to be treated as a vegetable. 

What if I gave you a tomato, given that you have never seen a tomato before and told you it’s a fruit? You’d lose trust in me and never let me give you food ever again. What a disaster for a professional chef.

However, avocados are delicious and nourishing and they go with pretty much anything!

I am obsessed with guacamole and I have a feeling that so are you. Smashed ripe avocados, lime or lemon juice, a generous dose of olive oil, onions, cilantro and tons of freshly ground black pepper. Can you think of anything more finger-licking? 

I can come us with a least 5, equally delicious ways to eat avocados like there’s no tomorrow.

 

Here are 3 ways to eat avocados like there's no tomorrow

Baked Goods

  • Try swapping out the butter in your next baking recipe for avocado, typically a 1:1 ratio will work perfectly.

  • Simple & Healthy Avocado Cookies

Ingredients


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Beat honey and avocado together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth. Add the flaxseed mixture and beat until incorporated.

  • Whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl; stir into avocado mixture until dough is well mixed. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls. Arrange balls, 2-inches apart, on a non-stick baking sheet. Flatten dough slightly.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bottoms of cookies are lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Allow to cool completely before serving.

 

Avocado Bruschetta

Avo on toast is old news. We do bruschettas instead.

Ingredients

  • 1 baguette, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 lemon
  • sea salt and black pepper
  • poppy seeds to garnish

 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place baguette slices onto prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Place into oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown.
  3. In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, avocado, remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Top each baguette slice with the tomato mixture, garnished with seeds.
  5. Serve immediately, drizzled with balsamic vinegar.
  • Avocado Pesto

  • It's creamy and delicious. It goes well with pasta, bread, or crepes and you can adjust the spices to serve a different version each time!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh basil , tightly packed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4-6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • sea salt & black pepper
  1. Process all the ingredients in a blender or food processor. 
  2. Add a bit of water if needed to achieve desired texture and consistency.
  3. Adjust the seasoning and serve with crusty bread, pasta or crepes.
