Interesting avocado dishes that everyone will like
In order to ensure that everyday food does not become boring much, good housewives try to diversify it to the maximum, especially since the shortage of goods is long gone, and supermarkets offer a wide range of products for every taste and consumer’s wallet.
You will probably agree, but we rarely eat exotic dishes, but, just the same, avocados are very exotic and even, one might say, very unusual fruit for our country.
There will be a considerable number of people who have not even tried it, but it’s in vain, because ripe avocado is not only very tasty, but also very healthy, it goes well with other ingredients and offers a very unusual, but very pleasant taste to any dish.
This fruit came to us from South America, it is there that they consider it as a “national” product, which is used everywhere and practically without exception in all dishes, to some extent it resembles our potato, it is sometimes even compared with this vegetable.
But, of course, the ripe avocado is significantly different in taste, its flesh is slightly reminiscent of melon, soft and slightly oily, it is well used in cold snacks or salads.
Avocado has one interesting property: the absence of its own pronounced taste is replaced by the fact that it perfectly absorbs the tastes and smells of other ingredients of the dish, but it also makes the dish light, soft and very rich.
There are many simple and tasty avocado dishes that can be realized even by the most inexperienced and novice hostesses.
As we have said, the fruit itself is very useful, so that it can become an indispensable component of many dishes for those who care about their health.
Interestingly, avocados can be called the champion in calories among all vegetable vegetables and fruits on Earth, because it contains as much as 30% fat, and there are 220 kcal per 100 g of product!
But the beauty is that these fats dissolve in the body fairly easily and quickly, plus the whole avocado not only does not contain cholesterol, but also helps to break it down!
But the benefits on this, of course, do not end: the fruits of avocados can boast a huge amount of vitamins E and F, plus vitamin B, A, D and PP.This fruit is useful for people with a lack of potassium, as well as those who suffer from diseases of the cardiovascular system, atherosclerosis and bowel diseases.
In order to prepare a truly delicious dish, you need to understand how to choose an avocado so that it is ripe, fresh, healthy, because this fruit is exotic, and therefore we rarely see it in the form in which it should be.
Remember that an unripe avocado is completely tasteless, like raw potatoes or something close to it, so it's better not to take chances.
Ripe fruit must have a shiny peel without cracks and dents, otherwise it will speak about its overripe. Take it in your hand and slightly squeeze, if you give in, it means that the fruit is in the right condition. If you still got a green fruit, you can quickly bring it to the senses: put it for a day in a cellophane bag with an apple ripen for a day, and not in the refrigerator! Usually this time is enough that the avocado is ripe.
