I just love avocados! Because of their delicious taste and many health benefits. They’re a great source of fiber, heart-healthy fats, vitamins K & C, and are packed with potassium {more than a banana!}. They really are one of the healthiest foods you can eat! I’m all about light lunches and simple dinners {and avocados!}.  That’s why I’m super excited to share these Stuffed Avocados 6 Different Ways with you. These stuffed avocados are what clean eating dreams are made of, full of whole foods and primarily plant-based. Many are great for vegan options, and then we have one for cheese lovers, one for shrimp lovers and one for those who like their eggs and {turkey} bacon! I wanted to include something for everyone and a good variety. 

They are super easy and quick to make with simple directions. My fav! They are perfect to make for a healthy lunch or dinner, a summer BBQ, or any summer soiree! And the egg and turkey bacon avocado is perfect for breakfast too. Fun random fact: avocados are also called alligator pears!

Stuffed Avocados 6 Different Ways

Baked Avocado Egg + Turkey Bacon

Crack egg and put yolk and some of the white into the hole of the avocado. Place on baking sheet and bake in oven for 10-15 minutes on 400 degrees. Keep a close eye on it so it doesn’t over cook as ovens may vary. Add sprinkles of chili flakes and a slice of organic turkey bacon. Perfect for breakfast or brunch!

Beet Hummus Avocado with Kale Microgreens

First, make your beet hummus. Blend 1 BPA-free can of organic chickpeas, the juice of ½ lemon, 2 tbsp olive oil, 3-4 steamed and peeled baby beets (I get them from Trader Joe’s), and 1/8 tsp sea salt in blender and blend well. If you need a little more liquid to help blend everything together, use a little of the chickpea water in the can. Scoop hummus into avocado hole and top with kale microgreens. I just love microgreens – for being so cute and little, and for being a nutritional powerhouse full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

Spicy Quinoa Stuffed Avocado

First, cook your quinoa. You need 1 cup quinoa and 2 cups water. Make sure to rinse your quinoa with cool water before cooking. Combine quinoa and water in a saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil. Then, reduce heat to a simmer and continue to cook covered for approx. 15 minutes or until all water has been absorbed. Remove from stove and let stand for 5 minutes covered. Scoop quinoa into a bowl and let it cool a bit. Then mix in your favorite salsa. Opt for salsa that is organic and has no sugar added. Then scoop this spicy quinoa mix into avocado hole and top with chives and blue corn tortilla chips. Here is my favorite brand that is non-gmo.
