Stuffed Avocados

These stuffed and baked avocados have quickly become one of my favorite things to cook.  They are so simple and every time you can change what you put into them!  I have made these twice and both times they were absolutely delicious.  And of course, you do not have to bake them.  Tweek and make the recipe yours! Stuff them with anything you like to eat avocados with 🙂

Tomato, cilantro, lime stuffed avocados:
Ingredients: 1 avocado (per person, or 2 if you are eating as a meal rather than a snack), 1 fresh tomato (per avocado), cilantro, 1 lime (or lime juice), Louisiana Hot Sauce, seasoning of your choice, and vegan cheese (I used vegan Parmesan)

Corn and mushroom stuffed avocados with cherry tomatoes:
Ingredients: 1 avocado, 1/2 cup (?) of corn (I almost never measure unless I’m baking, so really just enough to fill the holes in your avocado), 2-3 mushrooms (you could use canned mushrooms, too), 8 (or so) cherry tomatoes, 1 lime (or lime juice), Louisiana Hot Sauce, seasoning of your choice, and vegan cheese (I used vegan Parmesan)

Directions:

1. Cut your avocado in half and pit it

2. Slice your avocado both horizontally and vertically (like a checker board).  I usually do 3-4 cuts each way, depending on the size of the avocado

3. Pour in Louisiana Hot Sauce and help it get into the cuts you made

4. If any of your ingredients need to be cooked before being put into the avocado, do that now

5. If you are putting more than one thing as your stuffing, mix it in a bowl and scoop as much as you can fit in and on the avocado

6. Squeeze or drizzle your lime juice on top of the ingredients

7. Add any seasonings or herbs

8. Carefully sprinkle cheese on top

9. Bake at about 300 degrees for about 10 min or until the cheese gets melty and or begins to brown

10. ENJOY 🙂
