This one's for the avocado obsessed, such as myself. I keep at least 3 avocados in my fridge at all times.
I hated avocados when I was a little girl. (Actually, I hated all food that wasn't chicken strips or PB&J.) But sometime during my mid-late teen years, my taste buds finally saw the light, and avocados are now seriously in my top 3 favorite foods. And now I'll pretty much eat anything in sight. The only food my tongue doesn't agree with is cottage cheese.
Anyway, this recipe is delicious! I found this one on Pinterest and I think it's pure genius. Avocados are already so yummy by themselves - baking them with salsa and this bread crumb mixture gives me another way to eat them alone without the added calories of chips, or whatever else you use to scoop guacamole.
This is my idea of comfort food!
Baked Avocado with Salsa
1 ripe avocado
1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/4 cup fire roasted garlic salsa
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tbsp shredded Parmesan
1 tbsp lemon juice
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a small bowl combine bread crumbs, Parmesan, garlic and lemon juice. Cut avocado in half. Sprinkle with salt. Spoon the salsa in each half, and divide the bread crumb mixture on top. Bake for 5 minutes. Broil for 2 minutes. Serves 2.
I'm focusing on Ephesians 3:16-19 this week. "I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge - that you may be filledto the measure of all the fullness of God." That is a beautiful prayer!
