Recipe type: Appetizer  | Cuisine: Italian

Prep time: 25 mins | Cook time: 10 mins | Total time: 35 mins | Serves: 16 pieces

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 8 eggs

  • 1 avocado

  • 1 tsp lemon or lime juice

  • 1⁄2 tsp garlic powder

  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

  • Dash of paprika for garnish

INSTRUCTIONS

In a large saucepan, cover the eggs with water and bring water to a boil.

Once the water starts to boil, set a timer for 10 minutes and then transfer eggs into an ice bath.

When the eggs are cool, peel them and slice them in half lengthwise and transfer to a serving plate.

Spoon out the yolks into a medium mixing bowl.

Add the avocado and lemon/lime juice and mash them all together with a fork.

Stir in the garlic powder, sea salt, and pepper.

Using a spoon or piping bag (if you want to be really precise!), fill each egg half with the filling mixture.

Garnish with a dash of paprika.


Eggs are a very good source of inexpensive, high quality protein. More than half the protein of an egg is found in the egg white along with vitamin B2 and lower amounts of fat and cholesterol than the yolk. The whites are rich sources of selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron and copper. Egg yolks contain more calories and fat. They are the source of cholesterol, fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K and lecithin.

Avocados have a unique nutrition profile. They contain lots of fiber and are rich in vitamins and minerals, such as B-vitamins, vitamin K, potassium, copper, vitamin E and vitamin C.

Simple to make...creamy in texture! Plus, the pastel green is perfect for spring!
