There was a time in my life when you couldn’t convince me to touch avocado with a ten-foot-pole. The green, slimy, fruit/vegetable was foreign to me and frankly – it looked absolutely disgusting. Then I tried it. And my life was changed forever – bring on the mushy green stuff – I’m obsessed. Sometimes I buy more avocado than I know what to do with, which leads to invention. Today’s creation is an absolutely winner – a bit strange, but amazing:
2 ripe avocados
1/4 cup egg whites
1/2 cup almond meal
salt and pepper to taste
Pre-heat the oven to 350F. Slice the avocados into fry like shapes. Put the egg whites in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper. On a plate, lay out the almond meal. Dip each piece of avocado piece into the egg white wash and then into the almond meal and cover thoroughly. Place each coated avocado fry onto a tin foiled lined baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes, flipping halfway. Remove from the oven and enjoy.
I served mine with a greek yogurt/Sriracha combination [you could also use a mayo/Sriracha mix] as a dipping sauce.
