3 Avocado Recipes That Need Just 2 Steps To Make

December 12, 2016

“…the avocado is a food without rival among the fruits, the veritable fruit of paradise.” – David Fairchild

The avocado needs little introduction. High in healthy monounsaturated fat, commonly known as “good fat” and are present in natural foods such as red meat, nuts, and olives, it is hailed as a “superfood” because a single 100-gram serving contains 26 per cent of your daily requirement of vitamin K, 20 per cent for folate, 17 per cent for vitamin C, 14 per cent for potassium, and 10 per cent for vitamin E.

Avocadoes contain more potassium than bananas. Potassium is one of the minerals most people don’t get enough of but it is needed for healthy blood pressure levels. Regular consumption of avocadoes have been found to reduce LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol and triglycerides (a type of fat in blood) levels. High levels of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides increase your risk of heart disease.

On top of its impressive health benefits, the fruit is a delicious addition to meals. Buttery in taste and creamy in texture, it lends itself well to both sweet and savoury dishes.

Below are three avocado-based recipes – one for each meal of the day – that require just two steps to make:

Breakfast

Green smoothie

Green Smoothie with Toppings
Smoothie
1
avocado, sliced and frozen
1
green apple, chopped and frozen
1 cup
spinach
A handful
fresh coriander
1/2 cup
unsweetened natural yoghurt
Toppings
Blueberries
Strawberries
Green Apple
Chia Seeds
Unsweetened peanut butter
Steps
1

Blend the smoothie ingredients in a blender until smooth.

2

Pour out into a bowl and dress with toppings of your choice.

Lunch

AvocadoToast

Avocado & Feta Cheese Toast
Ingredients
2 slices
dark rye bread (or any bread of your choice), lightly toasted
1 tablespoon
nut butter of your choice
1
avocado, sliced
2 tablespoons
crumbled feta cheese
1 tablespoon
chopped spring onions
Crushed red chilli flakes, to taste
Salt and ground black pepper, to taste
Steps
1

Spread the nut butter on both slices of bread and then arrange the avocado slices on top of them.

2

Top the open-faced sandwiches with the feta cheese and spring onions before adding the red chilli flakes, salt, and pepper to taste.

Dinner

AvocadoPasta

Avocado Pesto Spaghetti
Ingredients
450g
spaghetti
2
avocadoes, sliced
1/2 cup
basil leaves
1/2 cup
olive oil
1/2 cup
pine nuts
2 tablespoons
lemon juice
3 cloves
garlic
A pinch
salt
1/2 teaspoon
black pepper
Optional
Sun-dried tomatoes to garnish
Steps
1

Bring a pot of salted water to boil and cook the spaghetti. Drain the spaghetti when cooked. Reserve some of the pasta water.

2

Put the avocadoes, basil leaves, olive oil, pine nuts, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper into a blender and blend everything till you have a green paste-like sauce. Toss the spaghetti in the sauce and serve.

Important! Do not wash the cooked spaghetti under cold running water. This will prevent the sauce from sticking to the pasta.
