While we love our authentic guacamole, we’re always looking for a new avocado recipe. Let’s be honest, avo desserts are so 2019. Let’s bring back the savoury choices! Luckily for us, Avocados from Mexico's partnership with Goodfood has three signature recipes that'll have you coming back for more.
First up, a vegetarian-friendly Seared Halloumi & Smoky Coconut ‘Bacon’ Cobb Salad with avocados. Forget the Cobb salad you thought you knew that relied on chicken and bacon to get the job done. You can get a whole dose of healthy fats and smoky “bacon” goodness from plant-based sources. Combining paprika, turmeric, cayenne, and more, this sweet vinaigrette will have your taste buds dancing with fresh, zingy joy. Topped with seared halloumi and sliced avocado, this unique salad will have you asking “chicken, who?” Seriously, who knew that toasted coconut could taste so smoky and bacon-y?!
Avocados are one versatile fruit — yes, fruit — and the next recipe features a Greek twist with just a hint of Mexican vibes. Greek-Style Honey Chicken over Spiced Rice with Chopped Salad, Avocado & Tzatziki is an umami adventure hitting the main food groups with all the essentials: avocado, spice, dip, greens, and a savoury-sweet protein. This original creation will have you singing out “Opa!” and “Pollo delicioso!" at the same time.
Rounding out the avo recipes is Tacos al Pastor with Ground Pork & Avocado paired with pineapple slaw. Nothing says fiesta quite like Taco Tuesday, so what are you waiting for? We know you live for a homemade and authentic spice blend of chili, paprika, cumin, coriander, and oregano with a zesty hit of lime oil — YUM. Sprinkle on some Cotija cheese, pile on the juicy pineapple-cilantro slaw, and dig in!
The beauty of a meal kit is that most of the prep (aka the shopping) is done for you, and you don’t have to worry about spending hours searching for the perfect recipe. Honestly, it’s happiness and ease of mind in a box! Order your Goodfood x Avocados from Mexico box today for your chance to win a free meal to share and let your senses rejoice.
