avocado plate

Hi there beautiful people, avocados are on my mind!

Just a plate of avocados dressed with raw zucchini ribbons and sprinkles of clementine zest. A little mint for freshness, a few drops of lime juice and a drizzle of good quality olive oil to bring the well-rounded flavours together. In the end I’ve added ground black pepper and a pinch of maldon salt. A nutrient dense avocado contains minerals and add value to my dishes almost on a daily basis. I cannot get enough of them and this simple dish makes a beautiful snack or a side dish for a dinner party. Just remember to squeeze more lime/lemon juice on the avocados if you leave it to sit for some time, as this keeps their green colour intact. Sometimes the simple dishes are the most memorable. I still remember my lunch from two years ago in Paris. I was craving for something fresh and I ate a simple plate of avocado slices with pieces of grapefruit. It wasn’t overplayed with spices or other ingredients, just some creamy avocado with a good kick of citrus. This plate is filled with monounsaturated fat (the good fat) and the rich creamy flavour feels almost decadent. I encourage everybody to think about the presentation of the dish, as you know eating with your eye is half the pleasure.

/ Avokadoa.

Rakastan avokadoa ja syön niitÀ melkein pÀivittÀin. Sen tÀytelÀinen maku on tÀynnÀ hyviÀ rasvoja, mineraaleja ja maku on muutenkin spot on! YleensÀ syön avokadoja aamupalaksi paahdetun jÀlkiuunileivÀn pÀÀllÀ tai sitten smoothien mukana.

Joskus yksinkertaisemmat ruuat ovat vaikuttavimpia. TÀnÀÀn tein vÀlipalaksi vain avokadoa mihin raastoin mandariinin kuorta ja kaadoin lorauksen hyvÀnlaatuista oliiviöljyÀ pÀÀlle. Ripottelin kesÀkurpitsa nauhoja mukaan ja lisÀsin vÀhÀn maldon suolaa, sekÀ tuoretta mustapippuria. Lopuksi revin mintunlehtiÀ ja puristin tipan limen mehua raikkaudeksi ja kaunis vihreÀ annos oli valmis. Helppo ja nÀyttÀvÀ, sopii erinomaisesti lisukkeeksi illallisjuhliin. En tietenkÀÀn aina koristele annoksia tÀmÀn nÀköiseksi, vaikka se syntyykin todella helposti, halusin vain nÀyttÀÀ miten pienellÀ vaivalla saat kaunista aikaiseksi. Ruokakin maistuu paremmalta kun se on seivÀn nÀköinen. Muistan vielÀkin lounaan parin vuoden takaa Pariisin reissulta, söin lautasellisen avokadoja ja verigreippiÀ. Todella vaivaton, mutta hyvÀ yhdistelmÀ, sillÀ kermainen maku tuki hapokasta makua tÀydellisesti.

Ei tÀssÀ muuta kun ihanaa keskiviikko iltaa murut!
