Grilled Avocado

With BBQ season here I have been searching for other things to throw on for a little more variety.

Avocado is so easy and very good for you. It is very low in Cholesterol and Sodium and is also a good source of dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K and Folate.

Simply cut the avocado in half and discard the pit. Keeping the peel on, marinate the avocado in a little bit of sesame oil, fresh squeezed lemon or lime and any of your favourite spices. Place avocado cut side down on a heated grill and cook for 10 minutes. Serve warm with spicy tamarind sauce.

For one average avocado there is about 13g of carbs, 22g of fat and 3g protein. Mmmmm so good!

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
