This was my first time grilling an avocado. To grill it you slice it in half, remove the seed, and place on grill for about 5 minutes. BAM. Done. I put salsa and sour cream in the hole. SO GOOD. This was last summer I think.
So when I found this recipe I was EXCITED. It is from the site Treehugger.com
which is a rather interesting site. You should go check it out.
Anyway, I had to change things up a bit because:
1) I didn't have garlic cloves, just that bottled minced stuff. We got through LOTS of garlic here and that it quick and easy.
2) Since I wasn't going to roast the garlic I decided to put some olive oil on the grill when I grilled the avocado halves. That way the olive oil taste would still be incorporated. I dig EVOO.
So go to the site to get the recipe and watch a cool video. Here are some lovely pictures I took as I worked to get you inspired. Enjoy!
Avocados halved. I love these things.
To pit them cut them in half, then CAREFULLY take a knife and smack it into the pit. Then twist the knife and the pit will pop out. Just make sure to be careful. To get the pit off the knife I use a towel to grab the pit. Can't be too careful!
Here is the freshly grilled halves. Nom nom nom
Shells, pits, and tomato balls. I don't enjoy tomatoes AT ALL, but the tomatoes in this recipe were bearable. I didn't even notice them really. I cut three tomatoes, but probably only used half of those. Also, I find the tomatoes here pretty.
Oh...and I forgot to take a picture of the finished product. We ate it too fast.
