October 3, 2008, Newsletter Issue #389: Baking an Avocado

Tip of the Week

Avocadoes are better eaten raw. Heating them too long turns them bitter and destroys its nutrients. Use fresh avocado peeled and chopped in salsa and guacamole, or make a salad with bitter leaves, toasted walnuts and goats cheese.

To bake, for example with cheese, cut the avocado in half and remove the stone. Fill both halves with cheese, then pop under a medium grill until the cheese has melted. This should not take longer than 2-3 minutes. Serve on a bed of lettuce and eat out of the shell.
