Stuffed avocado with aubergine spicy beef

Updated: Feb 22, 2019



Avocado are so nutritious, and filling. A great source of healthy monounsaturated fatty acids (oleic acid). They actually contain more potassium than a banana, and they are a great source of fibre. A high potassium intake is linked to lower blood pressure.

I served this dish with some purple sweet potato and cabbage. The yellow on the plate was an experiment for presentation using a brush of mustard across the plate. However, you could serve this with whatever you like!

I make a lot of bone broth, so I have a constant supply of shredded beef from the bones that I have cooked, and this dish is a good way of incorporating that meat into something. You could use any beef you have though, or you can make it meat free if you prefer.
