Am I the only one who could eat a whole avocado at once? They are so creamy and delicious! Did you know that the fat in Avocados helps you absorb nutrients in carotenoid containing raw vegetables like carrots and leafy greens (and other red, green & orange vegetables) and converts it into Vitamin A? This is true of other fats as well and is just one of the reasons a low fat salad dressing is such a bad idea. Fat helps you access the nutrients in vegetables!
Avocado also contains fiber and other vitamins and minerals, and the fat keeps you full. I like the glow factor of eating avocados. They are good for your skin! You don’t have to eat a whole avocado at once to get the benefits. These avocado fries are a delicious side at a cookout, and also a very fun appetizer!
Serve them with carrots and my Won’t Miss a Think Dairy Free Ranch Recipe!
Avocado Fries with Dairy Free Ranch Dip
Preheat your oven broiler and place the rack on the second level from the top. Lay out a parchment lined baking sheet.
2 Avocados that are ripe but not mushy
1/2 Cup Superfine Almond Flour
1/4 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt or Sea Salt
Wash your avocados and cut them in half removing the pit and then slicing them into six slices each, so three slices per half. You will have a total of 12 wedges.
In a shallow bowl, add your Apple Cider Vinegar and coat your Avocado Fries with the vinegar.
In a separate bowl whisk together the almond flour and salt. Dip each avocado slice in the crumb mixture, coating all sides, and place on the baking sheet.
Broil the avocado fries approximately 3 minutes on one side, then remove from the oven and turn, return to the broiler for an additional 3 minutes until golden. Sprinkle with a little additional salt if desired. I like a coarse finishing salt.
