asian avocado

Avocados are one of my favorite foods, but sometimes they ripen all of the sudden and I find myself scrambling for another creative way to eat them. This recipe requires minimal ingredients without making you have to eat plain avocado (trust me, you don’t want to make a habit of this- I ate them basically plain for a month straight in Costa Rica and had to take a long break afterward to regain my love for them!).

Serves: 1 large snack or 2 small sides
Prep Time: 5 minutes


1 avocado
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
½ teaspoon sesame seeds
2 tablespoons soy sauce

Make it your own: Add some cucumbers or crispy rice noodles to add some crunch! Add ginger or rice vinegar for even more flavor.


Scoop out avocado flesh and remove seeds
Slice or mash avocado (however you prefer to enjoy it!)
Sprinkle with garlic powder, red pepper, and sesame seeds
Pour soy sauce over avocado
Enjoy as a snack half way through the day or as a side with dinnerIMG_1998

Tip: This is a quick way to to get rid of an avocado before it becomes brown. Experiment with flavors you enjoy! Avocados are a great snack packed with healthy fats.
