You know when you see something and you just HAVE to have it. So much so, that you can’t stop thinking about. It’s existence just completely consumes you. Like holographic chocolate (WHAT!). This 3D-writing pen (craft projects for days!). Basically all the bedding from Anthropologie (can I just sleep in the store please?). And baked avocados.
Yes, I said baked avocados. I had never even thought about putting avocados in the oven before. Wouldn’t they get all brown and weird? Nope. Not really. What they do get is soft and warm and creamy. And even more delicious.
I was inspired to baked some avocados after seeing a gorgeous recipe from Taylor over a Food Faith Fitness. And now I want to bake avocados all the time! It’s an easy and fun way to jazz up the all ready amazingly awesome avocado.
Before baking the avocados, I stuffed them with a simple and fresh salsa (I guess I’m kind of obsessed lately with using my food as a bowl) made up of corn, cherry tomatoes and crumbled Queso Fresco. Once everything was out of the oven I added a few fresh cilantro leaves and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. I didn’t know avocados could get even better than they all ready are!
Eat ‘em with a spoon or with some tortilla chips for scooping. They make for a fun and healthy side dish, appetizer or mid-afternoon snack.
