As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemakers program, I recently received a large box of California Avocados. I know. I was excited.
I eat a lot of avocados, so to focus on them and come up with dishes to include them in was fun. You know, instead of standing at the kitchen sink with a knife, eating the avocado slice by slice.
We enjoyed avocado smoothies. Quick and easy – Chocolate Sunwarrior, avocado, ice cold coconut water, blend. Yum.
I made my Thai sweet potato wrap into an avocado quinoa bowl. Cool avocado with the warm Thai spices – a perfect pairing.
A sanswich with avocado sauce. I love these. Cool, refreshing summertime snack. Avocado sauce is versatile and tasty.
Then there is this sauce.
Another “recipe” or assembly I use avocado with is my standard quinoa bowl with the amazing garlic lemon sauce. <– eek, a very um… vintage post. The sauce is that good I had to share, and it’s good to see the change in my photography.
My bowl: quinoa, black beans, about 3/4 avocado, two chopped roma tomatoes, generous amount of garlic lemon sauce. I will never get tired of this – great flavors, filling, fast!
Jason’s bowl is the vegetarian version of mine, topped with Greek yogurt and cheddar. Generous pour of sriracha!
Big Thanks to the California Avocado Commission – these avocados were beautiful, and absolutely a great perk of the Foodbuzz Tastemakers program.
