Avocado Fries

Wondering what else you can do with avocados apart from making guac, chocolate avocado pudding, avocado toast, avocado face masks, smoothies, creamy salad dressings? Well, there’s a lot of options right there, but here’s another one: avocado fries that are bound to be a hit with the whole family.

Ingredients:

– 1 ripe (but not overly ripe) avocado
– 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (gluten-full or gluten-free)
– Seasonings of choice (I used dulse flakes, parsley flakes, crushed chili flakes, garlic salt, crushed cashews or sunflower seeds)
– Cooking oil
– Water

Instructions:

Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit, then cut into thin slices. In a plate, pour the breadcrumbs and mix in your choice of spices/seasonings. In a bowl, mix in 1 tbsp of oil with 1 tbsp of water. Dip the avocado slices into the oil-water mixture and cover them with the breadcrumbs.

You can now fry these or bake them.

To fry: heat some oil (medium-high) in a frying pan, and fry the avocado slices for ~30s on each side.

To bake: Preheat oven to 400F, bake for 10 minutes, flip them over and bake for another 10 minutes.  Eat as is or with a dip of your choice (ketchup or hot sauce works but I like dipping them in hummus).
