Avocado is a delicious fruit that is great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and is even delicious in desserts. It’s creamy and smooth, which is why it’s great when mashed or as a spread. You can use it to make yummy dressings and sauces, or you can cut it up and toss it in a bowl of food… it will almost always go well with whatever’s in your plate. To help you get more creative, we’ve put together these 15 delicious avocado recipes from the Food Monster App!

Is there anything better than sushi? While people normally associate sushi with raw fish, it actually lends itself really well to a variety of vegetables, most notably the humble avocado. There is something so delicious about the combination of sushi rice, seaweed and avocado with a little soy sauce to dip it in. There are so many other choices besides just avocado that you can use too, and it’s really just a matter of what you like. Dragon rolls are typically made with some type of fish (usually eel or shrimp), but this Veggie Dragon Roll by Lindsay Clarke uses tofu to get that meaty texture instead. They are always served inside out with the rice on the outside and topped with sliced avocado and a spicy mayo sauce.

This Deconstructed Sushi Bowl by Sapana Chandra is made from all the ingredients commonly used to make plant-based sushi, but it doesn’t require any nori-rolling skills. It contains fresh mango for a delicate, sweet flavor; cucumber, carrots, and cabbage for crunch; avocado for creamy, healthy fat; and a spicy dressing for balanced heat. If you’d like to incorporate even more vegetables, replace the white or brown rice with cauliflower rice.
