I can’t remember when I first ate an avocado but I’ve always loved them. There are certain foods that just shouldn’t taste as wonderful, such as oysters, octopus or avocado, but they do. Slow cooked octopus is heavenly, salty oysters are divine and creamy avocado is my very favourite vegetable. Sadly, they are prohibitively expensive but we do try and have them every now and then. Oysters are something we really only splash out on every so many years.
I’m trying to look after myself and my go to pick me up is always dark green vegetables and I love the sweetness of butternut squash to go with it, so I spiralized some squash, steamed it for two minutes as the kale was just finishing steaming. Some chicken and a good squeeze of lemon juice and our hearty supper was finished. We had half a slice of rye bread each with a thin smear of butter.
Our avocados were £1 each but they just melted when we ate them. That might not seem much but we try and keep our main meal to a pound or under. Sometimes though, it’s worth spending a bit more.
So, what’s your go to splash out? Anyone else love a creamy avocado?
