Avocado Fries – STAT

avocado fries

I happened across a recipe tonight for avocado fries and thought to myself, “Self? YOU NEED TO EAT THOSE. RIGHT NOW.” Only the recipe called for breadcrumbs (gluten) and frying (too messy – I’m lazy as hell) so I decided to just make up my own recipe on the spot. I do this from time to time and usually the food is edible (and by “edible” I mean “I’ll eat pretty much anything you put in front of me”), but tonight’s experiment was AWESOME. It was simple, healthy, grain-free, and fast. This is a good recipe for anyone who’s lazy as hell (like me).

Almond flour (approximately 1/2 C per avocado? I don’t know, I don’t measure anything)
Onion powder & salt to taste

Mix those together. Slice the avocado and gently dredge each piece in the almond flour mixture. Lay on a silpat or parchment paper and spray with oil (I use sunflower in a mister because that’s the kind of oil we are allowed to eat what with our 150 food allergies*). Bake at 400 degrees for maybe 15 minutes (also, I don’t time anything), turn once during baking.

That’s it. Easy and super delicious.

*Which I haven’t blogged about yet. But I will. Probably. Maybe.

Ooooh, you had me at “nut-encrusted.” I wonder if finely-ground pecans would work?

I bet they would. 🙂

One day I’m going to have to come to SoCal and find out what avocados really taste like, because based on the ones I’ve tried here I don’t get what all the fuss is about, so I think I might be missing something.

How firm were your avocados? (snicker, snicker)

They were… Perfect? That’s a measure of avocado ripeness, right? Heh. I would have thought that firmer ones would be easier to work with, but I didn’t have any so I just used ones that were *just* ripe and they worked just fine.

I’m putting avocados on my shopping list.
(Also, if you can see this comment, I have managed to trick wordpress into letting me comment on your blog. IF SO: Take that, universe!!!)
