roasted avocado slices

April 15th, 2013


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


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


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.
