AVOCADO FRIES

IMG_8529I’ve always enjoyed avocado as an ingredient in my salads, or as a creamy dip in the form of guacamole.  It was not until recently that a Facebook friend posted a picture of avocado fries she had ordered from a restaurant bar.  Naturally, I was very intrigued.  At the first opportunity, I ventured into making home-made avocado fries.  It turned out to be a very easy process.  And did I mention, super-delicious?  So the next time you crave for avocados, consider frying them!

INGREDIENTS Capture

2 fresh avocados, pitted, peeled, and halved with each half sliced into 1/2-inch crescents

Whites from two eggs, beaten

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup bread crumbs

Olive oil for frying

1-2 tbsps sesame seeds

DIRECTIONS

Heat oil in a medium pan over medium heat.  Coat each avocado slice with flour then dip into the egg batter before coating with bread crumbs.  Fry breaded avocado slices until slightly browned, about 2 minutes each side.  Remove from heat and place fried avocados on a plate lined with paper towel to drain excess oil. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve warm with crackers, bread or toasted tortillas.  (I used toasted Indian naan bread).
