As promised, here are some items I did with the avocados presented to me during A Taste of Australian Avocado event. We were given some recipe booklets and I've gotten the ideas to prepare some snacks and salads. Do check out the wealth of recipes in Australian Avocado.
I did a Tuna and Avocado Sandwich which is so simple to assemble. I've buttered 2 slices of wholemeal bread before spreading some tuna spread on one slice. Next, slice up the avocados and place on top of the tuna spread. Sprinkle freshly grounded black pepper and place the other slice of bread over. As easy as 1-2-3. You could actually put on some cheese and grill this sandwich as well.
Next, I've made an open sandwich of Eggs and Avocado. For one serving, just hard boil an egg. Once it's cooled down, cubed the egg. Then cubed up half an avocado. Mix the egg and avocado with some mayonnaise, I've used Japanese mayo for more eggy goodness. Season with some salt and black pepper to taste. Spread mixture on buttered bread or toast or even crackers. Crazy goodness here. Loved the creamy avocado combination with egg.
I've assembled this Grilled Chicken Salad which was great for a complete meal of its own. All I did was grill half a piece of chicken breast rubbed with some olive oil, salt and black pepper. Sliced chicken up after letting it to cool down for 10 minutes. Then I shred some carrot and Japanese cucumber with a vegetable peeler; cut tomato into wedges and slice up half an avocado. In a small bowl, whisk some extra virgin olive oil, apple cider vinegar, a little whole grain mustard, seasoned with salt and black pepper till well blended. Toss all ingredients in a big bowl together with some lettuce. To serve, place salad on a bowl and topped with sliced chicken breast.
Another way of serving a salad of similar ingredients as above is to cubed them up and drizzle in extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and seasoned with salt and black pepper. Toss and serve. As easy as that.
So there you go on my lazy-woman way of serving up delicious and nutritious avocados.
