Slice rich, soft, nutrient rich avocados. Then drizzle olive oil, soy sauce, and toasted sesame oil over it. This simple sauce make your sliced avocado a real treat. It’s one of our favorite snacks here! My two year old included.
My husband taught me how to put this simple snack together as it was a favorite family treat of his family’s growing up. I love that not only is it delicious, but it’s a very nutrient rich snack as well.
Kimberly from Hartke is Online, is hosting the first Natural Cure Blog Carnival today (a weekly happening). Isn’t that a great idea? I think that food can be one of our best medicines (and on the flip side, it can be our biggest threat to our health as well!). I love finding out the different healing properties of food. Take avocado. It’s a fiber rich fruit that is a great source of lutein, which keeps your eyes and skin healthy. It’s also full of healthy fats.
And who can beat that smooth, rich taste of avocado? Enjoy it to the fullest with the following recipe.
Japanese Style Avocado
1 large avocado
toasted sesame oil
1-To make, cut the the avocado in half and take the pit out. Leaving it in the peel, slice into thin strips (being careful not to cut through the peel). Take a large soup spoon and gently scoop the slices out onto a plate. Arrange in a pretty fashion.
2-Drizzle a little olive oil over it, then about the same amount of soy sauce and a small amount of toasted sesame oil. Enjoy.
Joel’s Grandma would use Tabasco sauce to add a bite. Sono, his mother would add a light sprinkle of cayenne or a bit of a mild chili powder for the same result. Another delicious option is adding garlic powder as well. They would sprinkle the garlic powder and cayenne on before they drizzled the sauce on. For a gluten free version of this recipe, use Tamari, which is a wheat free soy sauce.
