Chunky Avocado Spread

March 23, 2011 § 1 Comment

When I decided to make my Southwest Jalapeno Patty, I really wanted to add some avocado to it. I absolutely love avocado with everything-especially burgers and sandwiches! I think that it adds such a great flavor to the food. It’s also adds a good some good oils to your diet. I wanted to make something a little different that wasn’t just your typical avocado slice. I thought an avocado spread would be a refreshing twist to adding avocado on the burger/sandwich complex.

Below is the recipe and I encourage you to play with the amounts used to get a spread suitable to your taste. If you like something a little more tart, add some more lemon juice. If you want something with a little more avocado, add another one!

Ingredients

  • Handful of Heirloom Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • Handful of Parsley and/or Cilantro (I used a little bit of both)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Honey
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

To Make

  • Cut avocado into bit size pieces and toss into bowl
  • Finely chop parsley and cilantro and toss into bowl
  • Cut tomatoes to desired size (I sliced in half)
  • Add rest of ingredients and mix

I added this tangy/sweet delicious avocado spread to my burger below. It will go well with any sandwich, burger or nice piece of toast.

Enjoy!

Easy Hummus

This is one of my favorite snacks and it’s so easy to make! You will have a delicious snack in under 10 minutes. Traditionally tahini is added, but I don’t really care for it. I never add it and I don’t miss it at all. If you don’t have pita, you can dip use veggies or even put it on some toasted bread. There are no preservatives and you can control the amount of salt added. You won’t buy hummus again!

add 2-3 cloves of garlic into food processor/blender

add 1 bunch of parsley (add more or less depending on taste)

drain 1 can of garbanzo beans and pour in food processor/blender

add juice of 1/2 a lemon, salt and pepper

blend

done!

pita bread to make pita chips

Or eat it with some crusty bread.
