All Recipes Avocado

Throughout time and space, one constant has held true: Happiness is an avocado. Okay, the part about time and space may be a stretch, but the part about avocados being happiness is very much real. Avocados have seen a spike in popularity over the past few years with the announcement of their status as a “superfood,” prompting people everywhere to find new and inventive uses for the technical-fruit in their cooking. The avocado is incredibly nutritious, providing noteworthy levels of our daily recommendations of Vitamins B5, B6, C, E, and K, Folate, and Potassium, so it’s no surprise that it’s been incorporated into every meal of the day in almost any manner imaginable. Take care of yourself while dining indulgently by incorporating the avocado into your meals with one of these delicious recipes.

  1. Guacamole
    • You can’t talk about avocado-infused foods without first mentioning guacamole. Traditionally, it’s created primarily from avocados, with tomatoes, onions, cilantro, salt, and lime juice added to give it a light yet delicious flavor, though there are many variations on the recipe, with some adding jalapeño, cranberries, and even bacon to give the dip a twist.
  2. Avocado Deviled Eggs
    • Chances are that, if you’ve ever been to a church picnic, family get-together, or potluck dinner of any sorts, you’ve crossed paths with the deviled egg. Some people love them, some people hate them, but if you’ve never tried them with avocado, then you might find yourself surprised. Adding avocado to the mixture of egg yolk and mayonnaise really gives this classic recipe a delicious spin.
  3. Avocado in a Salad
  4. Cilantro-Lime Shrimp Tacos
    • Delicious and creamy, avocado is sometimes called “nature’s butter,” so why not use it as such? Replace the traditional animal-fat-based sauces like cheeses and mayonnaise with heart-healthy avocados to help you trim the fat from your diet and from around your waist.
  5. Avocado Fries
    • Do you want to start eating healthier but need to have that side of fries a few times a week to go with your main course? Try swapping out the potatoes with avocado for a healthy, crunchy-yet-creamy side dish that goes perfectly with any burger, steak, or meal.
