First, let me tell you that these fried avocados are amazeballs. I'm not one of those lengthy bloggers, I'm going to give it to you straight; short & sweet.
I don't measure the ingredients, I eye it up, but you can't really get it wrong because you just add more to each bowl if you're running out.
What you need:
•1 ripe avocado (soft & dark)
•1/2 cup gluten free bread crumbs (approx.). I used Glutino.
•1/2 cup coconut flour (approx.). I used Bob's Red Mill Organic.
•If you don't have a fryer, you'll need a medium sized pan filled halfway with olive oil.
-Beat the eggs thoroughly.
-Peel your avocado. Skin it? Peel it?... You know what I mean.
-Slice your avocado into big chunks.
-Turn stove on low to medium heat.
-Place the pan filled with olive oil on top of the burner.
-Coat your avocado chunks in the flour.
-Shake off the excess flour then cover evenly in egg.
-Allow the excess egg to fall off in the egg bowl, then transfer mixture to bread crumb bowl. Evenly coat in bread crumbs.
-Once they are all coated, add your chunks to your olive oil pan. Fry approximately 2 minutes on each side (until golden) and remove.
-Serve with your favorite dipping sauce. I selected Hidden Valley Simply Ranch (no artificial flavors or preservatives), but next time I'm going to try my healthy Southwest Fiesta Ranch Dip.
I don't know about you, but I have wasted SO much money and so many ingredients on these healthy, macro friendly, protein recipes on line that end up tasting like total crap.
I make a protein cake. It sucks. (Edited to add: I concocted my own protein cake recipes and you can find them HERE in my recipes section! Yay!) I make banana protein pancakes. They suck. It's funny because all of these YouTuber's will swear they have THE BEST recipes, but I'll follow them to a T and they still turn out nasty.
So I'm over at my friends house doing a photo shoot for Liv & Co. and she offers me this dip and carrots.
2 ingredients. Only 2 freaking ingredients. Who knew?! 1 17.6 oz. tub of greek yogurt (2%- I like Fage brand) mixed with 1 packet of Hidden Valley Fiesta Ranch Dips Mix.
If you're anything like me, you're probably thinking, "plain greek yogurt? Ewe..". Ya, I thought that, too. The taste of greek yogurt is SO overpowering that it normally overtakes anything you try to mix it with, but not this dip!
We initially used Grimway Farms carrot chips (but any carrot will do) to dip it in (so super healthy), but then we bought some raddish chips, then tried it with broccoli florets, and even Tostitos® SCOOPS!®. If you've ever spent hours slaving away on layered Mexican dips, or spent heaps of money on veggie trays, this will take you 5 minutes to stir up and tastes just as good, if not better, and it's healthy.
You can eat the crap out of these guilt free! The dip alone has 23g of protein per serving, not to mention the probiotics and overabundance of health benefits carrots and other veggies have to offer. Now, I always have a tub of this Southwest Dip in my refrigerator to nibble on throughout the day. What an excellent snack to take to work.
I even took this to a party recently and made a friend try it before I told her what was in it, and she swore it was sour cream based. Nope!
Have you ever had this dip? Did you love it? Tell us in the comments below!
