3 Ways to Serve Avocados

3 Ways to Serve Avocados

by Berkeley Wellness  

Think avocados are just for guacamole? Think again. Avocados can be served with hot dishes, and even substitute for mayonnaise.

  1. Avocados are rarely served hot because they can develop a bitter flavor when cooked over high heat. However, they nicely complement hot food. Fan avocado slices over broiled chicken breasts, toss avocado chunks with hot pasta, or add avocado cubes to a bowl of chicken soup.
  2. Use mashed avocado in place of mayonnaise on a sandwich or in a salad dressing.
  3. Make a savory, cold avocado soup: Purée avocados with fat-free chicken broth, lemon juice, and plain yogurt. Add chopped scallions and season to taste.
