Baked Avocado Fries
Just what your body ordered! Remember, monounsaturated & polyunsaturated fats from nuts, seeds & avocados are good for you. They give you energy for the day and for exercise. And like any food, avocados should be eaten in moderation to complement your overall diet and goals. If you’re a beginner, generally try to aim for 25% – 35% of your diet to come from healthy fats. Enjoy this delicious, addicting avocado recipe.
Baked Avocado Fries
- Pre-heat an oven to 375 F
- To prepare the dip, mix all ingredients in a bowl and season with sea salt and pepper.
- Remove the stem piece from your avocado and place a sharp knife in the center of the small dent.
- Press the knife down until your knife touches the seed. Rotate the knife around the seed until you reach the top of the avocado on the other side of the seed.
- Take the avocado in both hands and make a clockwise twist with your right hand. Now you have two half’s, the one with the seed in your left hand. Tap the seed with your knife and make an anti clockwise twist. The seed will come out.
- Slice the avocado in even wedge shape slices, (about 5 per half avocado), remove the skin, if necessary with the help of a spoon.
- Season the panko crumbs with Mrs Dash seasoning and whisk the egg white slightly in a separate bowl.
- Dip the avocado slices in the egg white, then in the seasoned panko crumbs and place them on a baking tray and bake in the pre-heated oven for 25 minutes. Check half way the time and turn the wedges to get an evenly golden brown and crispy result.
- Serve the avocado fries with the yogurt dip.
Note: panko crumbs give a nice crispy coating. So try to use those if you can. If you are unable to find panko crumbs, substitute with homemade breadcrumbs made from wheat bread.
