Guacamole – avocado dip

guacamoleHello everybody!

Today I have for you a very nutritious healthy and delicious recipe for those who love avocados.

The Guacamole  is an avocado-based dip that originated from Mexico. You can also use it as a condiment or salad ingredient.

Here is what you need:

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons of chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 pinch ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 pinch of salt

Directions: 

In a medium bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice, and salt. Mix in the cilantro, garlic and cayenne pepper. Refrigerate 1 hour for best flavor, or serve immediately.

You can serve it with chopped vegetables like celery carrots, cherry tomatoes, but u can use it as a dip for tortilla chips too 🙂

 ¡Buen apetito! :*

Baked eggs in avocado

avocadosHello my readers! 

Today I have for you a quick and very nutritious breakfast/ brunch recipe.

If you are an avocado fan, than this recipe is definitely for you! These avocado cups are very easy to make, you can pop them in the oven while you shower. The healthy fats and protein from the eggs gives you long lasting energy and the creaminess of the avocado is so great with egg.

You can top it with whatever you like, cheese, cherry tomatoes, pesto or olives. I topped them with some Roquefort cheese and green onions, and I have to tell you, they turned out fabulous!

Here is what you need: 

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 eggs
  • salt and pepper
  • Topping as you wish: green onion, cheese, dried tomatoes or some hot salsa, just be creative!
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the avocados in half and carefully remove the pit. Put avocados open side up in a baking dish. If they are small avocados, scoop out a little  to make more room.
  2. Crack an egg in each avocado half and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the eggs are done
  3. Top with desired toppings while still hot and enjoy!

Hope you will try it out and come back and thank me for it 🙂

Have a wonderful day! :*
