Avocado: How do you eat yours?

So towards end of last year I talked about how I discovered I do like avocado’s after all, after trying some when eating breakfast out. After reading up how to tell when an avocado is ripe and, ways to eat it, whether cold, or cooked, I took the plunge and bought my own avocado’s. I chose to have avocado on toast. I added a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of garlic granules and mixed it in the mashed up avocado. I had this on toast, with some baby tomatoes and I enjoyed it.

What I learnt now, from before some years ago when I thought I did not like, is that avocado has to have other foods, herbs, spices etc… added to it, because otherwise, it is just bland.

I also learnt from a guide I printed off and laminated was how to tell it is ripe. I did not know about this, or the above, so through trying an avocado all those years ago, to giving it a go now, it was quite possible all those years ago it wasn’t ripe either.

I also added half an avocado to a banana and strawberry smoothie once. It’s true what I read, that it makes it silky smooth.

Do you eat avocado? How do you have yours?

    1. I think it would have been warmed up after it was mashed. This was when I was at the resturant trying it.
      I have read about cutting avocado in half, seasoning it and drizzle of oil, then putting it face down on baking tray and in the oven for so long. Scooping it out after.

      At home I have just mashed it, add the oil and flavouring.

      I am certainly hooked now and I am surprised I have not had it on sandwiches. So you gave me an idea there. 😊
