Avocado – Persea Americana – Alligator pear…
Not a huge fan.
I’m ok with a guacamole dip… mainly because of the tortilla chips though…
I think it’s the mushy texture. Slimy too. It’s weird, come on admit it, you avocado-philes out there. None of us in the family are huge fan… in fact it was the only food that No 3 ever spat out in disgust as a baby.
Anyway, I keep hearing sooooooo much about how good it is for you blah blah blah that I bought two yesterday.
Two. Not one, two. And I’m going to try doing stuff with them both.
Today’s experiment involved a mashed up concoction on toast from the book ‘Every Day ‘ by Deliciously Ella. Olive oil, chilli powder and lime juice. I used baguette instead of toast and have to admit… it was really good.
Will do it again for sure and it’ll be perfect for those morning I fancy a savoury breakfast.
The other half of the first avocado went into the oven.
With an egg on top.
Not entirely successful as experiments go… I baked it for too long and I should have scooped out more of the avo flesh: the whole was too small and a lot of the egg is not stuck to the bottom of the dish. I suspect forever.
What a surprise… I actually genuinely loved the taste of both. Who would have thought… I might actually have to stop saying I don’t like the things.
The second avocado will go into smoothies… I think.
(Ali? it’s not going to happen with rocket or raisins… don’t even think about it)
