So, a few nights ago I made these avocado “fries” with some left over “breading” from my Raw Vegan Fish Sticks. After they had been in the dehydrator for about 5 hours, I pulled them out and put the tray on the island counter.
I hollered for Bob to come take a taste test. He walked up beside me and looked down at them and asked what they were. I explained what I did, he picked one up and took a bite. “Hmm, not bad, they are ok.”….. He turned the corner of the island. “yea, not bad!”…. he turned the other corner of the island and said, “Hmm, those are actually pretty darn good.” He came back full circle to the tray and in taking another one he said, “DANG, those are delicious!” He circled that island like a vulture until he had eaten every single one of them! I think it is safe to say that he liked them. haha
These avocado “fries” are best served warm right out of the dehydrator. They won’t harden due to the avocado and fat content. They would be perfect to have as an appetizer for a dinner party or gathering. They are crunchy and spicy on the outside but creamy and rich on the inside. Bob compared the texture to a truffle filled with ganache.
Avocados are very good for you. They are the best fruit (yes, fruit) source of vitamin E, an essential vitamin that protects against many diseases and helps maintains overall health. I recommend using ripe but semi firm avocados for this. If they are too firm, they are not ripe. Unripe avocados are harder to digest and don’t taste as good. If they are too soft, you will have guacamole on your hands, which isn’t so bad if you want guacamole. :) When I shop for avocados I have a two-step process. I lightly give them a squeeze and then I pop the “bellybutton” off… you know that little nub where they were once attached to the tree? If it is a nice bright green under it, it should be a perfect avocado. If it is brown, put it down and move along.
