You gotta love some of these magazines that try out new things, like this simply the best avocado fries recipe. This novel idea teases your taste buds with the tantalising contrast of a crunchy breadcrumb-coating around creamy avocados.
I would never have thought of that combination myself, — would you?!—but these best avocado fries sure are and do look delicious.
They are another way to get good fats into vegetarian teenagers who don’t want to eat vegetables. Sounds familiar…?!
Probably one of the healthier fries you can eat. Avocados are high in monounsaturated oleic acid, a “heart healthy” fatty acid. They are a naturally nutrient-dense food with nearly 20 vitamins and minerals.
They are however not calorie-free. A serving size is just 1/3 of an avocado (i.e. 4 avocado wedges) and will give you about 145 cal.
Made in 7 min in a pre-heated broiler. Let’s do this!
