Use for mashed avocado (besides guacamole)

Got a really good deal on bulk avocados, so I smooshed a bunch of ripe ones (sans rinds) in ziploc bags and froze them.

We don't eat chips or bread; can you recommend a recipe to use mashed avocado?

  1. Take a slice of sliced deli turkey and spread it with mashed avocado. Add some chopped tomatoes or onions if you'd like. Roll up. I sometimes eat a few of these for breakfast.

    1. avocado rice is really good - that's what I do with ripe need used ones - a little lemon/Lime/Cilantro S&P great side for BBQ chicken

      do you have an icecream maker? Avocado icecream is surprisingly amazing

      1. On taco salad, in lettuce wraps, as a condiment on tuna salad/ salmon salad/ chicken salad, in smoothies.

        1. Ditto to what nofunlatte said. Mashed avocado is great on ripe tomatoes and a slice of cheese, too, if you don't eat much meat.

          Also, there are lots of recipes for chocolate-avocado pudding on line. Some call for bananas and/or coconut milk, but we just use avocado, cocoa powder, a sweetener, splash of vanilla, and water. It's really quite rich and delicious.

          And you could always stir some into a batch of mac and cheese or potato salad, or add to a smoothie.

          1. You can use mashed avocado to sub for all or part of the mayo in lots of recipes, like egg or chicken salad, or where you might use some egg or dairy as a binder and moisture-giver, like meatballs, meatloaf, bean, turkey or salmon burgers, cornbread, etc.

            A nice cool sauce for fish or poultry is avocado blended with yogurt and fresh herbs (and a little mayo if you want it less tangy).

            It's also good in in cold blender soups like gazpacho.

            If you eat pasta, this is a great quick recipe:

            I also like to scramble eggs with tomatoes, scallions and sometimes a little cheddar cheese and/or cilantro, and to stir some mashed avocado in once it's cooked. It's good as an omelet filling, too.

            And, last, if you really have a lot, you might want to give avocado ice cream a try:

              I bookmarked the avocado sauce from ohsheglows. I think I'll make it with zucchini "pasta." Thanks!

                  Now that is a glowing endorsement! What all have you used it on?

                  1. re: MrsJonesey

                    Zucchini noodles, salad, roasted veggies, sandwiches, as a dip for raw veggies, a glob ontop of a stew or soup, instead of mayo for eggless salad, on quinoa..... Kinda anything i think of when i have it on hand! :)
