8 delicious avocado recipes


1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 (recipe below)

As fruits go, avocados are unusually high in fat (the "good" kind), but they are also incredibly nutritious containing Vitamins K, C, B, and E as well as folate and potassium. They are also loaded with fiber and antioxidants. Therefore they are often referred to as a "superfood". Personally, I like them because they are so versatile in cooking / baking!

Als Frucht ist die Avocado ungewöhnlich reichhaltig, aber sie ist dennoch eine gute Quelle für 'gesunde' Fette. Sie enthält eine Vielzahl an wichtigen Nährstoffen, ist besonders reich an Kalium und der hohe Ballaststoffanteil hilft den Blutzucker zu regulieren. Deshalb wird die Avocado oft als "Superfood" bezeichnet. Ich mag sie nicht nur geschmacklich, sondern auch weil man sie vielseitig zubereiten kann!


Avocado Appetizer 

These appetizers are easy to make and delicious! They are made with pumpernickel, a type of rye bread with a slightly sweet, malty taste. It's a traditional bread from Westphalia, the region of Germany I currently live in! It usually comes in square slices, but for these appetizers I prefer the "gourmet" round slices. To prepare spread natural cream cheese (mine is lactose-free) evenly on the slices. Top with flat-leaf parsely, small cubes of avocado, chopped sundried tomatoes (in oil), and season with ground black pepper. Serve immediately.

Diese Pumpernickel-Häppchen sind einfach zuzubereiten und schmecken köstlich! Runde Pumpernickelscheiben mit Frischkäse bestreichen; mit flacher Petersilie, kleinen Avocadostücken und getrockneten Tomaten (in Öl) belegen und mit schwarzem Pfeffer würzen. Sofort servieren.


Happy Friday!

  3. Yum to all of this! I've been eating an avocado a day again and these will spice it up. I love it with lots of nutritional yeast, a sprinkle of salt and some smoked paprika.

  4. Those all look so good! My husband loves avocado and I'm trying to like them but I just don't like the texture. I'll keep working on it though and maybe I'll eventually like them! :)

  5. Your appetizer looks good, but I'm not a fan of avocado. The rest of the family loves it though, so I'll pass these ideas on to them! :)

  13. Fried avocado is excellent, and it's a nice alternative to other fried foods. I've been putting avocado with tuna lately.
