Avocado on the Menu

If you’ve been following the Eating to Live on the Outside series you know that I am the self-proclaimed Presidente of the Avocado Fan Club—Viva La Revolucion! Okay, I’ll calm down. Here is some of Dr. Fuhrman’s avocado propaganda—uh, I mean recipes:
Creamy Balsamic Dressing
1 avocado
3 Tbsp. of balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. of all-fruit apricot jam

Blend all ingredients. (Serves 4)

Chilled Avocado Soup
1 avocado
1 green pepper, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 cup soy milk
2 cups carrot juice
4 scallions, chopped fine
Juice of ½ lemon
1 garlic clove
1 red onion, sliced
Handful of fresh dill, chopped
2 cups water
1 Tbsp. VegiZest or another dried vegetable
½ tsp. Mrs. Dash

Blend the water and lemon with garlic clove, onion, and peppers. Add mixture to pot with the carrot juice and soy milk and simmer on low heat for 20 minutes. Place hot soup back in blender and blend in the avocado and then pour out of blender and stir in the scallions. Serve warm or cool, but do not reheat once the avocado is added. (Serves 4)

Avocado Tornado Dip
2 tomatoes chopped
1 avocado
4 stalks celery, chopped
½ red onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1 pinch chili powder
1 pinch paprika
1 tsp. date sugar

Blend all ingredients together in a food processor or blender. Great as a dip for raw veggies.
