VegKitchen’s Favorite Avocado Recipes

Mango, avocado, and arugula salad

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 easy avocado 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.

Hummus avocado and baby spinach sandwich recipe

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.”

Avocado tahini dip from Wild About Greens

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.

BBQ-flavored seitan and avocado wraps

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.

Avocado and pinto bean salad

    In my book any way to eat an avocado is the right way! I’m especially drawn to that decadent looking tahini dip! A perfect topping for my beloved blue corn chip snacks!
