We had a miscommunication in our house today which resulted in an abundance of avocados.

What recipes do you make with avocados?

All I've ever used them for is homemade guacamole.

Thanks, MG

RE: MG: "an abundance of avocados"

I always liked the term we used when I lived in Puerto Rico:

"aguacates" - kinda rrrolls off the tongue

You can make a nice pasta sauce with them. Rich and fattening, but nice.

Mince some garlic, de-seed and chop three tomatoes, and chop up two avocados. Saute the garlic in some butter, then add the avocados and 1.5 cups of cream (I use half-and-half, go for whipping cream if you want it even richer).

Simmer the sauce, stirring constantly and mashing the avocados with the spoon. When it's good and smooth, add the diced tomatoes and some Tabasco for heat. Season it and keep the sauce warm until the pasta is ready. Serve with grated parmesan sprinkled on top.

This amount of sauce will serve six people.

I love avocado slices with grapfruit segments. Dress with a mixture of honey and vinegar. Makes a wonderful salad or dessert.

My friend Big Lou, who supplies my wild rice, has relatives from his Mother's side living on the Red Lake Rez. He doesn't have much good to say about the it.

Make a simple "club" sandwich.

Good white bread, toasted and spread with mayo; layered with thinly sliced turkey and/or ham, cranberry sauce if you like it with turkey, torn romaine lettuce, crisply cooked bacon slices, lots of black pepper and a little salt, topped avocado slices.

Delicious.

They go great on salads or even sandwhiches instead of mayo.

Try adding Avocado slices to a BLT sandwich . . . tastes great.

As mentioned in other responses to your post, sliced Avocado also goes great in salads . . . that's how I use Avocado most of the time.

It's a nice sound when properly pronounced in Spanish!

The word comes from language of the Aztecs and Maya (Náhuatl) and it means both the fruit we are talking about and also 'testicle.' When the Spaniards took the 'ahuacatl' back to Europe, it was transliterated as 'avocado' as the closet pronunciation.

But, (as SB pointed out for Italian) 'avocado' means 'lawyer' in Spanish (advocate in English). Given the double-meaning of the root word 'ahuacatl', I suspect the Spaniards figured there were already enough bad lawyer jokes around so they eventually changed the name to the less phonetically accurate 'aguacate.' But, there was no conflicting meaning in English so the original transliteration of 'avocado' was retained.

Ditto that!!! I sometimes just eat the slices with some lemon juice squeezed over them and a dollop of cottage cheese on the side.

Did you get totally buried by the storm over the last few days?? Going skiing on July 4th?

Well not totally . . . the recent snow fall made up for much of what had melted during the first half of March . . . whether the ski areas have enough snow to stay open until July 4th, that might be a stretch . . . June is a possibility. However, skiing has been great.

I like them plain. Just slice and serve.

SB, I know it isn't much of anything, but please tell your friend they all have our deepest sympathies. I could not imagine what that would be like to go through, nor do I ever want to find out.

I posted this on my blog a while back:

Something a little different, because most people are used to savoury/salty recipes with avocado, this one is really sweet!

I was looking for some recipes to use avocados in. Vons had them onsale for 10/$1.00

One of my favorite recipes using avocados is a very simple but an unusual soup.

Make a pot of chicken noodle soup. Your choice of canned, homemade, box etc..

Before hand, chill a combination of cubed avocados, tomatoes, green onions (and some jalapeno slices, if you like it spicy, cilantro if you like that, too).

Ladle the soup into bowls. Spoon in the chilled vegetables.

The contrast with the hot soup and the icy veggies is very fun and the combination is very yummy.
