13 Ways You Never Thought to Eat an Avocado

When the first human picked up an avocado, we guarantee that person just said, “rock,” and then threw it on the ground. Thankfully, some smarty-pants ancestor realized that ugly black rock was a delightful, nutrient-packed fruit, or we’d never have experienced that thrill of cutting one open: Did I let it ripen too long? Will it be 90% pit? Will it be so, so, SO awesome on top of those nachos? Let’s find out.

1. Dark Chocolate Avocado Mousse With Coconut Caramelized Bananas: Yeah, um, we just can’t. Get that little cup of wizardry here now. (via Half Baked Harvest)

2. Baked Eggs in Avocado: You are just 20 minutes away from an edible little breakfast bowl that’s fancy enough to serve to guests but simple enough to eat three times daily when the only thing in your kitchen is eggs and avocados. (via FitSugar)

3. Avocado Fries: But how?! (via Closet Cooking)

4. Avocado Ranch Dressing: Salads just got less boring with this Ranch dressing that’s vegan, paleo and gluten-free. It’ll even keep for up to a week without browning! (via Feed Me Rachel)

5. Grilled Steak, Avocado and Spicy Crema Sandwiches: There’s something about a juicy steak and smooth avocado that make us want to take a ridiculously huge bite. (via Serious Eats)

6. Avocado Mac and Cheese: A healthier spin on the comfort food. (via The Messy Baker)

7. Avocado Creme Brulee: We’ve been waiting for an excuse to buy a mini torch, and now we’ve got a creamy green reason. (via Food Republic)

8. Indian Guacamole: This subcontinental guac, with mustard seeds, cumin, turmeric and cilantro, will make you rethink everything. (via Sunset)

9. Avocado Naan: You’re going to need something to get that guacamole from the bowl to your mouth, and this is that thing. (via Vegan Richa)

10. Poppyseed Avocado Cake: As a rule, cake is pretty much butter-centric. However, this effective hack replaces the butter with avocado (in both the cake and icing) without skipping a beat. The pretty pastel green color is a bonus! (via Food Me Over)

11. Shrimp Avocado Salad: No need to wait until the snow melts to enjoy this simple and versatile summer dish. Throw it on a bed of greens, chop it up finely for a seafood salsa or spoon onto crostini for a party app. (via Add a Pinch)

12. Avocado Ice Cream: Cool as a cucumber without actually being a cucumber. (via Brit + Co.)

13. Avocado Toast: Not so much a recipe as it is the BEST SNACK IN THE LAND. Don’t overthink it, guys. Just sprinkle on the sea salt, black pepper and crushed red pepper, and eat that shizz up. (via Apples and Onions)
