Many Brits avoid avocados because they wrongly believe
them to be a bad fatty food. But it is time
to dispel those myths - because in reality they contain
healthy monounsaturated fats that actually
help to lower cholesterol levels.
The fruits also contain the protein tryptophan, which
boosts levels of serotonin, the chemical in the brain
that promotes good mood, happiness and a sense of wellbeing.
That is not to mention the high content of Vitamin E,
antioxidants and other oils for great physical health
inside and out. It explains why theyre used as
a very healthy alternative to butter in Chile!
With the first Avocado Week 2009 upon us (19th to 25th
October), why not take advantage of this nutritious
fruit with a quick and easy avocado recipe.
In celebration of Avocado Week, winner of MasterChef
2005 and restaurant owner Thomasina Miers has developed
an exciting range of delicious avocado recipes suitable
for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Cooking notes on avocados
should be eaten when they are soft.
Check when you are buying them for ripeness by gently
squeezing them at the tips they should yield
a little to the pressure of your fingers.
They are often sold before they are ripe so if you
want to eat them quickly store them in a brown paper
bag with a banana somewhere warm. The enzymes in the
banana will make the avocados ripen much more quickly.
On no accounts keep them in the fridge. A window sill
that gets some sunshine or an airing cupboard is ideal.
