Sometimes you guys just have to trust me.

Because right now, some of you are thinking, “I’ve never had avocado served warm.” 

But the thing is — you’ve been missing out.  Like, desparately.  Because roasted (or grilled) avocado is so incredibly delicious, you’re going to be shocked when you finally try it.

These taste almost like big thick-cut baked french fries, only a million times richer and creamier.  They’re absolutely delicious.  And super easy — go try it!

Roasted Avocado Slices

INGREDIENTS

2 avocados, fairly firm
Extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Fleur de sel
Fresh ground pepper

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Cut each avocado into quarters, lengthwise, discarding stone and peel. Drizzle with a little olive oil and season generously with garlic powder, sea salt and fresh cracked pepper.  Bake for about 15 minutes or until the slices are a little golden at the edges.

    Katy, Looks yumming.  Funny, we were just in Austin this weekend for our grandsons 1st birthday and my son smoked a suckling pig. What one year old has a smoked pig for first birthday! Anyway, we grilled some avocado and they were yummy.  I may try the roasted or grilled in a salad. Yum.

    I’m not an avocado fan. I know. I know. Everyone tells me I’m missing out. But I’m trying to learn to like it. May have to try this way!

    So true!  I made avocado fries coated in breadcrumbs and it was amazing.
