Oh, avocado — the food that has become the unofficial spokesperson for millennials. It may have acquired a trendy food reputation, but let me tell you a little secret: Avocados have been making meals delicious since long before somebody decided to smash it and spread it on toast. In fact, there are very few dishes that don’t benefit from avocado — I’m looking at you, bowl of cereal. With its creamy texture and rich flavor, avocado cools off spicy dishes like chili and adds pizzaz to a lackluster sandwich.
The magical green fruit goes a long way nutritionally and is a good source of monounsaturated fat, vitamin E and vitamin B6. They are easily accessible and can be found in any grocery store or trendy workplace. From tacos to soups and sandwiches and even waffles, avocado adds a ton of flavor to just about any dish. We’ve rounded up 14 delicious avocado recipes that showcase the versatile fruit in a variety of ways.
