VegKitchen’s Favorite Avocado Recipes
I fully admit, I’m an avocado addict. Yes, they’re loaded with nutrients, including folate, vitamins B, C, K and E, fiber, niacin, potassium and more. They’re a great source of good fats and fiber. But I really love them for how they taste, and their mouth feel. Based on reader enthusiasm, here are a few of our favorite ways to feature avocados in easy recipes.
You don’t need a lot of ingredients when you combine such an awesome set as these in Mango, Avocado, and Arugula Salad (above). It’s a pretty salad that brings such cheer to cool-weather meals.
Readers of VegKitchen’s Facebook page always go crazy when we share Vicki Brett-Gach’s Hummus, Avocado, and Baby Spinach Sandwich. Says Vicki: “Despite its simplicity, this sandwich is really delicious, and the kind of lunch I look forward to all morning. Protein, healthy fats, good carbs, plenty of fiber, antioxidants…it’s all there.”
Kind of a marriage of guacamole and hummus, and infused with a good amount of tender greens, Very Green Avocado-Tahini Dip makes a unique statement. Serve with tortilla chips, fresh pita, pita chips, raw veggies, or a combination thereof.
This BBQ-Flavored Seitan and Avocado Wrap recipe is a longtime family favorite. Barbecue-flavored seitan contrasts deliciously with cool avocado and leafy greens. Like most wraps, it’s a salad disguised as a sandwich.
This delightful Veggie Sushi Rice Bowl tastes like your favorite veggie sushi, but without the fuss and mess of the rolling and cutting. It makes ample use of avocado. Photo by Rachael Braun.
