Meatless Monday: Italian Baked Avocado for One!


 

Italian Baked Avocado 

As you’re reading this I’m currently on a flight on my way back from the Rock’n’Roll half in Vegas.  Hopefully alive and not injured 😉 Since I had to write this up quick before I left on my trip, I wanted to make sure I had something yummy to share.  Avocados are always a hit so that was a no brainer but I wanted to make sure this recipe was extra tasty and fabulous, so I added some Italian flare and popped them in the oven.

Let me just tell you, you haven’t tasted the deliciousness of an avocado until you’ve baked it.  I actually tried a baked avocado for the first time at a book club party last winter.  At first I was unsure of what it might taste like…why in the world would someone mess with something as as beautiful as raw avocado perfection? I was skeptical then I took a bite and my world changed a little.

You can really flavor this any way you please (southwestern flavors would be fantastic) but I was in the mood for some Italian so I just grabbed a handful of ingredients that I had on hand, mixed them together, topped the avocado with it and after a 10 minute bake it was ready to devour.
