Raise both hands if you LOVE avocados as much as we do! We wanted to give you a simple recipe for your long and special Memorial Day weekend that we can't get enough of.
:: 1 large whole ripe avocado
:: 6-8 boiled eggs (less or more to taste, I would start with less and add more to your liking)
After eggs and avocado, add in:
:: Spritz of fresh lemon or lime / whichever you have on hand. This is for taste but also to help the avocado stay green and vibrant
:: Salt & pepper to taste
:: Something to eat it with!! I love it with toast and croissants. If you are gluten free or if you're trying to stay away from carbs, it is equally delicious over brown rice/quinoa and fresh spinach. Lastly, it can be used an awesome dip with tortilla chips, any chips, crackers, YUM!
:: Fill your pot almost 3/4 (enough to submerge the eggs) full with water and get it boiling at a medium/high setting on your stove.
:: Add some salt which will help get the peeling off easier.
:: When it's bubbling/boiling - carefully place all of the eggs in the water, turn it to a low heat setting and cover it. I read that it takes 12 minutes when done this way, but the more eggs you add - the more minutes you add on. For this many eggs, I put 20 minutes on the timer.
:: When the timer goes off, Drain the water out and run cold water over them until they are ready to be peeled.
:: Once eggs are boiled and peeled, cut the avocado and add in the eggs two by two mashing them through with a fork each time. You can also cut the eggs up before adding them in so it's easier and quicker to mix.
:: Then stir together all ingredients. The riper the avocado the easier it will be to mix and the smoother the consistency.
If you want to bring more flavors out and more nutrients, by all means - do it! When I get the chance I'm going to try adding in: raw onions, chopped celery, flax seed, chia seed, garlic powder, and the possibilities are endless. My mouth is watering. Don't delay, try it! Your taste buds and your tummy will thank you. IF you end up sharing it (I can eat the whole thing by myself), whoever you share it with will thank you!
We hope you are well, and we have SO MANY exciting things coming your way in the days to come! Happy Memorial Day weekend, and a BIG THANK YOU to all of those who have served. We are so blessed to live in this country and to have our freedom.
