Deviled Avocados ~ Raw Food Recipe

serves 2 ~ $1.81 per serving

  •  3 avocados ($3.57)
  • 1 tablespoon mustard ($.05)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon macadamia mayo*

My local store has had excellent prices on avocados over the
last few months, sometimes as low as seventy-eight cents each. The
prices are going up again so I thought I’d do some things with the last
of the lower priced avocados. Getting to know your produce manager can
help you save money … they are who will know what’s coming in season,
what’s going on sale, etc. Also, you can arrange bulk purchases with
them for some produce items.

I used to love the mustardy
taste of deviled eggs. This isn’t identical, probably doesn’t even
qualify as a “faux food,” but it’s still mustardy good. Prepared mustard
isn’t raw … mustard powder to taste can be used instead.

In a bowl, mash one avocado until mostly creamy but still slightly
chunky. Mix in the mayo, mustard, paprika, salt and pepper. Cut the
remaining avocados in half and fill with the mixture. Sprinkle with a
pinch of paprika.

* macadamia mayo

  • 1 cup macadamia nuts
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon agave
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Blend the macadamia nuts, water, and salt until smooth and
creamy, which may take a minute or two. A personal or bullet type
blender can be used for this.
