Beyond Guacamole, Cooking with Avocado
Guacamole is a must-have for any tailgate party, Super Bowl bash or backyard BBQ, but that isn't the only thing the irresistible avocado is good for. With its creamy, buttery texture and rich, almost nutty taste, this amazing superfood is the perfect ingredient for a host of delectable and healthy meals.
Among her 62 recipes, Dyan Merick cooks up a full selection of breakfasts, salads, soups, lunches and snacks, main entrées, side dishes and desserts for you.
Why not try Scrambled Tofu Burritos or an Apple Avocado Smoothie for breakfast? Put Burger Sliders, Mushroom and Onion Naan Flatbread Sandwiches, or an amazing Vegetarian Chicken Salad on your lunch menu. Dinner offerings include Alfredo Avocado Fettuccine, Black Beans and Sausage, and Polenta Stacks with Marinara, plus avocado versions of favorite comfort foods such as chili, sloppy Joes, and spaghetti. Nor has dessert been overlooked. Indulge yourself with light, dreamy Avocado Cream Pie, Date and Raisin Fudge, or a frosted chocolate cake made with avocado.
And yes, you'll even find four different guacamoles
Avocados are a Nutrient Dense Superfood
Avocados are packed with antioxidants, healthy fats, minerals, and vitamins. According to the American Heart Association, the healthy fats in this fruit can reduce cholesterol levels and decrease the risk for heart disease. Lutein, a compound found in avocado, has been shown to protect against macular degeneration, cataracts and breast cancer in women. Avocados contain more folate per ounce than any other fruit, crucial for moms-to-be. Avocados are also rich in glutathione, considered valuable to preventing aging.
