I like making new recipes that are healthy to eat. This one is basically fried potatoes without oil and a mashed avocado with green onion and spices.
‘Hass avocados, the most common commercial avocado cultivars in the world, contain a variety of essential nutrients and important phytochemicals ’.
This recipe is really easy to make. The potatoes take the longest to cook, but to me, it’s well worth the effort and wait. Sorry about the picture quality, but I’m sure the photo tells the story good enough.
Here’s how I do My Fried Avocado Boats Healthy Snack Or Meal Recipe…
- I brush clean two medium potatoes under tap water
- You can peel these, but I eat them with the skin on!
- I slice them up in 1/4″ slices
- Place them in a large frying pan (if you have to have oil, you can wipe pan with EVOO on paper towel or drizzle about a tablespoon or less in)
- You might not have room to cook all of them at one time
- So, you will have to wait to replace ones done with the extras
- Chop up 1 bunch of green onions in small pieces
- Slice a lemon in half to squeeze
- Cut ripe avocado in half and scoop out on cutting board
- Personally, ‘Hass’ avocados are my favorite 
- Mash it up on a paper plate with potato masher
- Squeeze lemon on top
- The spices are a quick shake of onion powder, garlic salt, paprika, oregano and black pepper
- But, if you like spicy, squirt a shot of jalapeno sauce in
- Try adding Tajin® lime spice!
- Mix it all ingredients together with a spatula
- When your potatoes are done, I spoon avocado on each slice
- I like mustard, so I will top it off with a small amount (when I eat fried potatoes plain, I often use mustard or green tomatillo salsa to dip in)
- You can also sprinkle a bit of Parmesan/Romano cheese on it
- This is really filling and can make a good size snack or meal
- Not too fancy, but it’s filling and tastes really good!
If you want to add healthy fats to your diet, the avocado provides it. Also, be sure to include a few seeds and nuts in your daily diet, but not too many. I sprinkle slivered blanched almonds on my salad when I remember to do so. I love tasty quick recipes like this one. I hope you like it, too!
