I have never learned how to eat avocado. Firstly, it is not a common fruit in Singapore and secondly, coming from a typical asian family, nothing beats a bowl of warm fragrance white rice over stir fried dish. We need our savoury starchy staple and we like our food HOT, straight from the wok!
But things change a little recently after we came over to France. Avocado is a pretty common fruit here and is relatively cheap. In an attempt to ‘eat healthy’, I googled for some avocado recipe and realized that avocado is mostly used as dip, dressing and salad. Driven by desperation, I did some improvisation and came up with this VERY SIMPLE, SUPER EASY, almost BRAINLESS recipe. I swear I am never this crazy over cold raw food, except maybe for sashimi and I can’t help but to wonder why didn’t I try this when I was in the States when avocado was in abundance. It’s hard to believe that I actually enjoy eating this healthy!
1 avocado, skin peeled, mashed or sliced
1 can of sweet corn
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar
and all you need to do is mixed the above ingredients together.
You can eat this with meat dish or simply on its own as avocado is considered a complete food which is high in minerals, vitamins, dietary fiber, folate and is very filling. More on nutritional fact of avocado.
