I love grilled avocados. I’ve been eating a lot of them lately. The smoky flavor is so rich and delicious. I view this buttery green fruit as a superfood. And is perfect for my vegetarian diet.
Avocados are a good source of fiber, potassium, and vitamins C,K, folate, and B6. Half an avocado has 160 calories, 15 grams of heart-healthy unsaturated fat, and only 2 grams saturated fat. One globe contains more than one-third daily value of vitamin C, and more than half the day’s requirements of vitamin K.
Here’s a simple recipe that I love.
Grilled Avocado With Salsa
3 avocados, halved
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
1 lime, cut into wedges
Salt & pepper to taste
Greek yogurt & Salsa
Preheat a grill to medium-high heat.
Half avocados then salt and pepper. Whisk together the lime juice and olive oil in a small bowl. Brush each avocado half with the lime juice marinade.
Place each prepared avocado half, flesh side down, over the hot grill. Cook for about 3-5 minutes, or until grill marks appear and the avocado is warm, but not overly mushy. Don’t flip!
Remove the avocado halves from the grill and fill the hole with salsa (I like mine to be room temp) and top with yogurt.
Squeeze a wedge of lime over the avocado halves and a little cilantro.
