Avocado Boats

My name is Olga and I am an avocadict. That is, a person addicted to avocados. I love their smooth texture, their creamy taste and that wonderful shade of green. In fact, I love everything about avocados. I've been known to use them for cooking (with pasta), to make guacamole, or just eat them with a spoon with salt and some tabasco sauce. 

Here's a fun, pretty way to serve- and later eat avocados. I call them avocado boats.

You will need (serves 4):

4 ripe avocados
1 big tomatoe or 2 smaller ones
1 garlic clove
some olive oil
salt and pepper
fresh mint leaves
tabasco sauce/chili peppers (optional)

Cut the avocados in halves and remove the pits. Using a spoon, remove the flesh and put it into a bowl. Be careful not to destroy the shells and don't throw them away- you will use them to serve the avocados in. Cut into pieces and mash.

Cut the tomatoes, garlic, mint leaves, and chili peppers if you're using them into very little pieces and add to the avocado. Add olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix thouroghly.

Fill the avocado shells with the mixture. If you like, you can decorate your boats anyway you like.

  1. Excellent! I have put this in my special file of great recipes. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Wow, Thank you Stephen, glad you liked the recipe, it is basically sort of guacamole, just served in avocado shells. I think you can serve mango sherbet the same way... I have a recipe about banana- lychee ice cream coming up some day :)

  2. I love these. I also add a can of tuna and it is so delicious.

    1. I love these, too! Tuna is a great idea, and I know crabs are also popular with avocado. Or cooked egg. Another good thing about avocados? So versatile.
