Lightbulb Avocado Fries

I saw these on Peggy and Curtis' Blog: Raw Inspiration. I am so trying these!

Quoted from site:

Avocado Fries

Here is a simple and satisfying treat for when the fried food craving hits!
Slice up some avocado into 1/4-1/2 inch strips.

Tip: After slicing the avo in half score the flesh while it is still in the rind and then scoop out the meat and it will already be in strips.

Roll the avocado in a flax breading that is made up of:

1/2 cup ground flax seeds
1-2 tsp. garlic minced or powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. oregano
1 Tbs. nutritional yeast

After breading the avocado slices you can dehydrate them for about an hour. This warms them up as well as allows some of the oils of the avocado to soak into the breading. You could just eat them right away too.

The spices can be varied and your imagination is the only limitation. I once made spicy chili fries and they rocked! Be well.

How did they turn out? I'm thinking of trying them and then I look at the 'beautiful' avocado, slice, little sea salt and pop and yum! Just afraid to play with it. Joz

Thumbs up Yummy!

Wow, these are still in the D -- but they are great! (1/2 hr more to go)

My 2 yr old and my 32 yr old (DH) would have ate all of them before I put them in there, if I would have allowed it!

So, rothamerica, you really don't need to have a D to make these -- you could also heat your oven to 100 degrees, turn it off and just keep them in there for an hour, I bet that would have the same effect.

I will let you know what they taste like outta the D tomorrow!

Thumbs up Fantastic!

Yes - these are great, with or without the D!

I really wanted to dip them in salsa -- but we didn't have any. I will make sure I have some available next time I make them.

They do not keep well, so you really need to eat them all at once -- which we tried, but, just ended up making myself sick! next time I will cut the recipe in half, I think. (Unless I am making htem for more than two people!)

Yep -- this is a great recipe!

Arrow 4 Avos

I used 4 avocados -- but there was enough breading left over to do another, so you could do 5 medium sized avocados, if you have a big enough stomach!

Well, that's part of the problem. I don't have a kitchen where I live, which makes being on a raw food diet difficult, but not impossible. Most of what I eat I get on the road to and from work. I'm on the road 6 hours a day, working in places like Boston and Hartford, CT. Hopefully when I get my own place, I can try out all of these fabulous recipes. Thanks again. Lots of love - Scott
