Like many of you, I adore avocados. I try to incorporate them wherever possible –morning shakes, afternoon soups, dinner salads – you name it. Recently however, I’ve been having my daily avocado just on its own with a bit of this lemon soy sauce dressing.
This combination is magic. I mean avocados have such a wonderful taste and texture themselves that they really don’t need much to be fabulous.
I’m back in Vancouver and had forgotten how blessed I am to live here. I’m blogging from home at the moment—with the mountains and the sea as my company. Humbled .
Friends, i’m currently writing to y’all from Chania, Greece! It’s BEAUTIFUL here and I wish you were all here to experience it all with me.
Don’t worry though , i’ve been eating enough calamari, cuttle fish and souvlaki for all of us :).
It’s that time of the year again where our new years resolutions start slipping and our excuses strengthening.
These sexy devils put a wicked spin on the traditional Deviled Egg. I can say with confidence that these eggs will be the life of the party! Take my word and make doubles!
It’s such a clever idea, I know! Sadly, I didn’t come up with it myself..credit must be given to the one and only Martha Stewart.
However, I jazzed up Martha’s original recipe by adding a few touches of my own =). One of them being the addition of Garlic Powder from Leisure Lane Farms-which one of my Twitter followers had kindly mailed me. Sprinkling garlic powder on the tops of these deviled eggs made them that much better! Thank you Gary!
6 hard boiled eggs
1 medium avocado, diced small
3 tablespoons mayonnaise (sourcream or greek Yogurt for healthier alternative)
3 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tbsp green onions, finely chopped
1 teaspoon of lime zest
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (to sprinkle on top of eggs)
Salt to taste
1. Peel eggs and cut in half, either lengthwise or crosswise. Carefully scoop out yolks, and arrange whites on a platter or tray.
2. In the bowl of a food processor, process egg yolks, avocado, lemon juice, lemon zest & mayonnaise until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Add in the green onions.
3. Fill egg whites with yolk mixture and place on a serving plate. Sprinkle with a touch of cayenne pepper, garlic powder & fresh green onions.
