A tasty little appetizer prior to the main meal, perfect for Christmas lunch or summer entertaining.
Best Guacamole Ever
Avocado and White Chocolate Tarts
Simply delicious and easy to make, this sweet treat is perfect for a social occasion or an afternoon pick-me-up. This recipe fills approx. 24 mini sweet pastry tart shells or 12 larger sweet pastry tart shells.
Chilled Cucumber Avocado Soup
This soup is inspired by Nana’s chilled cucumber soup. And although the original recipe doesn’t contain avocado my Nana being quite radical for her time (back in the 80’s) would sometimes add a scoop of avocado for an extra creamy texture. It was not unusual for this chilled soup to be served on a hot summer day, even featuring as a refreshing starter to Christmas lunch on a number of occasions. For a dairy-free soup omit the yogurt and add extra lemon to taste. A balance of salty, sour and pungent is the key to this flavoursome soup, which I hope will become a family favourite using creamy NZ avocados.
Chef Dom's Christmassy Avocado & Chocolate-Mint Mousse
This is a rich desert that tastes more along the lines of dark chocolate than milk chocolate. Dom loves it but some children may need extra sweetener. Definitely a “special occasional” as Dom says because very rich.
Smoky Avocado, Corn, Roast Red Pepper and Potato Salad
This tasty summer potato salad is perfect to take along to summer a BBQ.
Avocado, Asparagus & Mint Rice Paper Rolls with Almond Satay Sauce
Avocado Chocolate Truffles
These truffles are not only incredibly tasty, they are made healthy with the addition of avocado and avocado oil!
Avocado Chocolate Mousse
This Chocolate Avocado Mousse dessert is rich and creamy, yet much healthier than your standard chocolate mousse. Avocados give it a thick creamy texture and make it much lower in saturated fat. You could garnish it with anything -fruit, grated chocolate, nuts or shredded coconut for example.
