ADD an avo, or two or three to your daily meals with one or more of these avocado recipes
CHICKEN CURRY WITH AVO SAMBAL
What is chicken curry without a sassy sambal on the side?
Add diced avo and chopped fresh coriander to your traditional chopped tomato and onion and toasted coconut, for a touch of the exotic.
BAKED SPUD WITH AVO TOPPING
Add a zesty mashed avocado topping to your baked potato for a substantial dinner, no meat needed. Simply slit your spud open and add a generous dollop of low fat cream cheese. Then mash your avo, add seasoning, a dash of lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil.
Pop this on top of the cream cheese and top with micro herbs, sprouts and seeds.
Make your steak Michelin Star worthy with a fresh avo topping. Mash two or three avos with lime juice, finely chopped spring onions, a deseeded chopped tomato, one clove of chopped garlic and a few splashes of Tabasco sauce. Add a few dollops to your grilled steak and top with biltong shavings. Serve with onion rings and a little extra guacamole for dipping.
CHICKEN PANINI WITH AVO ‘MAYO’
Replace your mayonnaise with creamy “avonnaise”. Whizz one avo in a blender until smooth, drizzle about 50ml of olive oil through the feeder, followed by two tablespoons of lemon juice. Mix into shredded cooked chicken, season with salt and pepper and spread generously on Panini bread.
PASTA WITH AVO, FILLET, PINE NUTS AND CHILLI
Toss strips of grilled fillet and slices of avo with warm pasta, garnish with toasted pine nuts and a touch of chilli. Serve warm with parmesan shavings for a quick mid-week dinner.
