Avocado Presentation 101
I always wondered about how people make such beautiful presentations with there avocados, so I thought I’d give it a try! The most important things are a nice fresh, yet semi soft, avocado and a sharp knife!
First slice your avocado in half. (I hope its beautiful on the inside!)
Then peel the skin off one half. If your avocado is too soft this will be really hard. You may have to use your knife to cut the skin a little to start peeling.
Once your avocado half is fully peeled, lay it flat side down on a cutting board. Cut thin slices wit your sharp knife. If the avocado slices stick to your knife, just wet your knife from the sink faucet and proceed.
Once its cut, grab it with both hands and start turning the ends into a circle. I put the smaller end of the avocado into the middle of the circle.
Use a thin metal spatula to take it off the cutting board and move it to your plate. Viola!
I eat a lot of avocados. Did you know avocados are a fruit?! They have vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium. More potassium than a banana and a lot less sugar. Although the fat content is high, but that’s what I eat! A low carb high fat diet! I especially like them with my eggs for breakfast.
Not as pretty, but it will be the next time!
