My First Post Of The Year 2011 - Warm Stuffed Avacados !

Hey Guys......Wish you all a very Happy and Healthy New year....Hope it brings all the joy in the world...Hope you all had a fantastic holiday with your family and friends...I am sure at the same time you had feasts loaded with calories at this time of the year..well I had too;)...and now I am worried that I might put on few inches around my waist..;) which I never like to see..........So started straight away I thought about having something light...I had a few avocados in my vegetable basket ..so I thought let's finish them..but didn't know what to make of it...and Google came to help...I found this recipe on BBC Good Food website...

It was really fresh and light...it can be great alternative to salad as a starter...I had it for my lunch and oh boy I enjoyed it immensely....From now on I will have this more often...I used the same recipe with no changes..



You will need:-

2 large ripe avocados


3 tbsp olive oil

1 plum tomato , deseeded and chopped

4 sun dried tomatoes in oil, drained and chopped

50g pitted black olives , quartered

2 spring onions , finely sliced on the diagonal

1 tbsp capers

1 tbsp each freshly squeezed oranges , lemon and lime juice

1 tbsp cider vinegar

2 tsp caster sugar

2 large fresh torn basil leaves

Method:-
1.Heat grill to hot. Halve the avocados and discard the stones. Brush each half with ½ tsp of the olive oil and arrange on a baking sheet. Grill for 5 mins.


2.In a small bowl, toss together all of the remaining ingredients. Season to taste, then divide between the hollows of each avocado. Serve immediately. Enjoy as much as we did...
