When I was a kid, I hated avocado. My dad eats a ton of the stuff. Like, half of one a day, by himself. He would always slice off a bit with his spoon and hold it out to us kids and say, "You should have some. It's delicious," and we would cringe and whine and decline in all the classic ways kids do when they're afraid of a food. Now, I love it. It's an acquired taste, I suppose.
I've really been into avocado lately. Like, really into avocado. Creamy. At once bold and subtle. A perfect addition to virtually anything. Sandwich? Yep. Wrap? Of course. Salad? You betcha.
As a result of me wanting to consume avocado at every available opportunity, I've been adding it to a lot of dishes. For example, above, I made these spring greens, carrot, and avocado spring rolls, served with a acidic-tangy-sweet dipping sauce. They were an accompaniment to a vegetarian dish I'll discuss soon. But man, were these spring rolls nice. Light, flavourful, bursting with avocado.
And then there were these seasoned chicken, mushroom and swiss wraps that were just begging to have avocado added to them.
Which Rich made into a fantastic sandwich.
And on a mushroom swiss burger, served with mutant tater tots.
