Saturday Recipes - Avocado!

Today I dream about trying all of these creative recipes for dishes involving avocado!

Avocado is known as a great source of energy, vitamins from the groups B and E, potassium... and calories :)

It is one of my favourite fruits - I never knew whether it was a fruit or vegetable, but it is a fruit. Trust me, I checked! - which tastes equally good with some onion in guacamole as it does blended with banana in a smoothie.

Apart from those two and my new favourite - egg baked in avocado which I showed you last week, I never knew what else can be made with avocado, so here's some ideas :)

Grapefruit and Avocado Salad with Shrimp 

It's super healthy and full of flavours! Sounds and looks delicious - a must try! Get the recipe here!

I have no idea how come it never crossed my mind to deep fry avocados?! It looks amazing, crispy on the outside, creamy in the middle served with cilantro lemon dipping sauce - yummy! Find the recipe here!

Brussels Sprouts with Bacon, Avocado, and Lime

I know that most of you probably hate sprouts but it might be because most of the time they are served in the wrong way! Trust me, they can be really delicious, just like on the picture below! Click here for the recipe!

Avocado and Shrimp Sandwich

Unfortunately the original recipe is in Hungarian, but I tried to translate it and it looks like it's shrimps marinated in chili with lime and tangerine juice served with red onion and sour cream in a toasted baguette or ciabatta type bread.

  5. Boże, ależ zgłodniałam. Awokado bardzo lubię, ale głównie w sałatkach. Jakoś wersje kanapkowe do mnie nie przemawiają. Może nie trafiłam jeszcze na tę idealną?
