Default Avocados

Anyone here love avocados? It's my new drug. I love them! There is one sitting on my desk but it's not ripe yet. I'm going crazy. I know they are too fattening to eat everyday, so maybe just half everyday. My boyfriend got me started on this. Damn him! I usually just eat it with lemon juice, salt and pepper. I've had it with olive oil too instead of the lemon juice.

I love them. I have a tasty recipe for southwestern soup with avocado if you'd like it.

I love them. They are high in fat for a veggie, but they are no-carb, so I eat them with abandon. Dipped in a little full-fat Russian dressing....Mmmmmm...mmmmm...

Here it is:

Native American Posole

1 chopped jalapeno
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 small zucchini, diced
1 large tomato, cored and diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups canned white hominy
1 cup pinto beans
3 cups water or vegetable stock
2-1/2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 teaspoons paprika
1-1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 avocado

Heat the oil in a large saucepan and add the vegetables and garlic. Saute 6 to 8 minutes until the vegetables are tender. Add the hominy, beans, water, tomato paste, and seasonings and simmer 45 minutes to an hour, stirring occasionally.

After the soup is finished, core and dice the avocado and add it to the soup.

That's it!

I LOVE avocados! I pretty much hate salad but if you add some avocado, I will most definitely eat it.

I made some amazing guacamole last night. I love them too...we all do. I put them in salads of just slice em as that nights veggie. If I slice I'll add kosher salt and pepper or Italian dressing. I love them on burgers and turkey sandwiches. Last time I ate tortilla soup there was some in there and it was amazing. And Z is right about the BLT...yum.

I LOVE avocados! SOOOOOO good. I like them on crusty bread with tomato, salt and lime. Simple and delish.

Also, just started using them as a substitute for mayo in tuna salad. DELICIOUS!!!!

Mmmm on toast instead of butter, a good way to get your fill without overdoing the fat

But it's a better kind of fat than any animal fat and has other health benefits. I never ate avocados- the look, smell... was gross to me. One day last year I tried a bit of guac- and was hooked. I can't eat them straight yet, but a bit of guac mix (high sodium though) or natural with sea salt, lime juice, garlic and cilantro is pretty darn good. I'll mash one up with seasoning with a few chips and that will be my lunch.

I like to make a tomato and avocado salad - just slice them both up and lay the avocado slices on the tomato slices (like you would with a tomato/mozzarella salad) and then sprinkle with salt & pepper, olive oil if you feel like it.

I also like them sliced on sandwiches - my fave is with hummus, spinach, and tomato.

And I make homemade guacamole every time we have a party. Super-easy and always a hit.

I love avocados, but don't get to eat them often. I'm always so amazed that people use them in their hair, because I could never! I'd eat it before I even got the chance. I want one now

I feel the same way. Honey also. Some people keep a squeeze bottle of honey in their shower to use on their hair...when I tried it, I found myself taking honey-hits and ate more than ever went on my hair. It was very sad.
