They work well with so many different cuisines and can even be used with savory or sweet recipes (if you haven’t made avocado chocolate pudding or ice cream you’re missing out.)

Sushi. Is there anything better? 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 version 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. Try out Lindsay Clarke‘s Veggie Dragon Roll — you’ll love it!
