04 Jul 3 Ways to Eat Avocados
Avocados are a stone fruit. Not that it makes any difference; a rose by any other name…
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.
