Avocado

Friday, March 25, 2011

Lately I can't get enough of avocado. I mostly have it on toast with a bit of olive oil, pepper and salt - or just on its own with a spoon and a bit of lime juice. It's my favourite spring lunch by far! Do you like avocados? What are you craving lately? xoxo

P.S: I'm making this salad tonight. Do you have a favourite avocado recipe? Do share:)
P.P.S: Fun facts: They are also called Alligator pears and they are cholesterol-free!

mmm I love avocados. I love them on a toast like you said. Also, I love guacamole....
Lately I've obsessed with eating sauteed spinach( with salt and pepper and a pinch of nutmeg) on toast with cheese on top (fontina is my favorite) and broiled for a few minutes until the cheese melts...It's so GOOD!

Now you got me hungry.. off to lunch!

Kisses!

this may sound strange, but when I was in the Philippines I had a banana and avacado smoothie that was out of this world! I'm sure it is the type of thing where you need to experiment a bit with the banana to avacado ratio (I'm pretty sure they also used a bit of condensed milk), but it is so delicious. I plan on doing a little experimentation myself when I get a chance to see if I can even come close to replicating the awesomeness.

love them, but it is hard to get a good one in Canada at this time of year...hate it when they are black and mushy!

Dancing Branflake said...

Alligator pears? How cute! I love them but I cannot eat them alone because they are too intense for me. Gorgeous photos!

I don't like Avocado. I know - everyone things I'm crazy when I say that. I have been craving spinach salads lately. I could eat baby spinach leaves all day!

i love avocados! they are so good with black beans and rice.

Styles 'n Cream said...

I am a huge fan of avocados and my kids love them too - they can eat 2-3 at a time if I don't stop them. I love adding them to salads, or just chopping them and adding some sea salt. They are so delicious and good for you.

this free bird said...

i've never had strictly avocado on toast...i just dive right in, peel and eat. they are so tasty!

have a great weekend, my dear.

Avocado? I'm sold! For the longest I would never eat avocado, and one day I did and couldn't believe what I had been missing.

Tsuki aka LittleGrayFox said...

I LOOOOVE avocado! I like to do a little mix of olive oil, sea salt, pepper and a bit of vinegar.

yummm! sometimes I throw in some cherry tomatoes

Marjorie Rose said...

Open-faced avocado sandwiches! Yum!

Nikki said...

I love it with a spoon...and filled with crab if I can get my hands on some!

...love Maegan said...

Marisa Midori said...

Mmm I love avocado! I really is the perfect spring treat. I never knew that they are also called alligator pears, that is so fun! Have a marvelous weekend!

L A C E Y said...

avocado is the best! i always think it's so strange when people don't like avocado. i make the best guac = avocado + garlic salt + pepper + lime. eat with fritos. seriously, the BEST snack ever.

hi-d said...

I love avocado! On sandwiches, eggs, or by themselves.

Here's a yummy snack: ritz crackers with avocado slices and tabasco sauce. It's got a little kick, but "Oh so good!"

I have been eating those Cadbury Mini Eggs that they have at Easter time. Those things are sooo dangerous. I could eat the whole bag. LOL...

Have a wonderful weekend!
hi-d

p.s. I added you to my blog's side bar. Thank you! :)

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

I love them with toast and tomato, yum.
My father in law has an avocado farm in San Diego and once a year we get a whole box full of the best and biggest avocados imaginable

Jessica said...

Avocado is my favorite. Even just sliced with a sprinkling of sea salt is perfection!

TheChambrayCountess said...

Funny you posted this bc I took a salad of avocado, tomato and fresh mozzarella to work on Tues! (I loved it so much I made it again on Thurs!)

Evie said...

Now you have made me want to make some avocado toast...that just burnt bread looks delicious!

Caroline of Salsa Pie said...

I love avocado as well! I eat it like you--on toast. I also make a dish from shredded chicken, mayo (or you could use olive oil) and avocado all combined together in a spread. It's called Reina Pepiada and it's a DELICIOUS South American spread--great on Arepas or toast. xo!

Annie said...

LOVE them and eat them by themselves too :) So delicious and healthy!! these images are great

Diana Mieczan said...

Reina Pepiada sounds delicious, Caroline:) I so need to try it.

Heather Taylor said...

Yum, want some guac and pico de gallo right now :)

Ruthie said...

I first used to only eat them with a spoon, a sprinkle of salt and a dollop of mayo in the center hole so I could get some with each spoonful. Lately I tried salt AND coarse cracked pepper, a squeeze of fresh lime, and some Montreal Seasoning ...O.M.G. you can make your own Montreal or buy it from McCormick...yumm yummm (also like the idea of banana and avocado...)...I have a picture on Pinterest also.

Sherri Len said...

Cut in half, remove seed. Scoop out entire half and spoon salsa verde into "bowl", top with a dollop of sour cream, shake on a bit of Cholula...mmmm. Tastes a bit like guacamole with a fraction of the work/ingredients.

Diana Mieczan said...

Oh boy, that sounds so good, Sherri:)
