less fat and more spreadable

Isn't tofu really fatty too, though? Isn't it the fat wot makes it spreadable?

two years pass...

I have some nice avocados in my fridge at the moment, just begging for me to do something creative with them. Seeing as I'm not in the mood for collage, some cooking might be nice instead.

This was nice the other day. Avocado on toast, but a bit posher. Grill one side of the toast, mash up the avocado with a good, liberal splash of lime juice and some fresh basil (cut the basil up small) and a bit of black pepper (think I might have used olive oil too, but you prob don't need to) spread on toast, and stick under grill again. For some reason it looks posher if you cut it up into little squares. Nice as a sort of side thing, if you're having pasta or something.

But what would you make? REVIVE THREAD!

avocados are so rich that doing very much to them seems like gilding the lily, but they're nice diced and added into black bean soup and spread on toast as recommended above.

Adding avocado to things >>>> adding things to avocado.

E.g., BLT+avocado is mouth-watering, but adding much more than salt and lime and maybe some cayenne yields less of a return.

Take the avocados out of the fridge, quick! They don't like it in there. Put them in a bowl with some bananas instead.

I'm not sure I agree with this, as my favourite thing to do with an avocado is halve it, take out the stone and fill the holes with vinaigrette, then spoon into mouth. Yumski.

one month passes...

I discovered a superb taste-combination earlier, although I'm unconvinced that it isn't already a going concern in some corner of Central or South America:

avocado and coffee

Discovered by eating an avocado with a spoon that still had some coffee beans stuck to it. Went from o_O to ^_^ in mere moments, Esquire
