With the “Big Game” around the corner, people are looking for quick party foods. Now I love a party as much as the next guy. Although I could care less about sporting events, which are much anticipated but almost always a let down. We’re even supposed to care about the commercials, which are also a bust after you pass the age of 12.
So even though I don’t celebrate the event, the food still should. That means fat-filled, meat-stuffed, covered-in-cheese, dripping-in-sauce party food. What’s a vegetarian to do?
Here’s a simple solution:
3 ripe avocados
¼ cup diced red onion (optional)
¼ cup diced tomato
1 ½ tablespoon chopped cilantro
Salt/pepper to taste
Halve, pit and skin the avocados. Mash in a bowl. Add other ingredients. Mix well and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with tortilla chips or as a condiment for many different dishes.
We have similar recipes. I tend to use a bit more cilantro and lime than that. Often this is to make up for my forgetting to pick up red onion. Sometimes I throw in a little minced garlic though 🙂
I never quite follow a recipe. And I leave the onion out. (By the way, the wife made this batch. Shh…)
Enjoyed your comment about the spinach gratin – you need to see the movie ‘Julie and Julia’. After watching it I contemplated doing the same only with an Italian cookbook. I haven’t quite committed to it yet but it is still on my mind.
How about this recipe for macaroons? It is the one I use for Dad.
Beat 4 egg whites until stiff. Add 1 cup sugar very slowly while beating. Fold in 1 tsp vanilla, 1/3 cup flour, and 3 cups coconut. Drop batter from a spoon onto a greased and floured baking sheet. Bake at 300 for about 20 minutes.
