Although technically a fruit, the Avocado is more used as a vegetable.  It is lovely in salads, sandwiches, in dips like Guacamole, in pasta sauces and also in cakes and sweet bakes! It is a healthy food and high in fat, but the type of fat that provides research-based health benefits.  This is another great way to eat Avocado … baked as wedges. These wedges are really delicious, sooo crispy but yet when you bite into them, the avocado flesh tastes so smooth, that it is almost like cheese oozing in your mouth!

You have to try these!  They are very simple to make and would make lovely appetizers too! Just treat yourself to some!

I made these with Gluten Free Cornflakes.  For non-Celiacs, you can use breadcrumbs or if you like this idea, normal cornflakes.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup gluten free flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1/2 tsp garlic pepper
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/4 cups gluten free crushed cornflakes
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 2 firm-ripe medium avocados, pitted, peeled, and sliced into 1/2-in. wedges
  • Any Ranch or French Dressing to serve

Method


Preheat oven to 200 Degrees C.  Mix the crushed cornflakes with the chilli, the other seasoning, the grated parmesan and set aside.

Coat avocado slices gently in the flour, then in the beaten eggs, and followed by the cornflake mix. Spread on a cooling rack that has been sprayed with non-stick spray, and then place the rack on a baking sheet.  Spray the top of the wedges with olive oil and bake for about 20 minutes or until they are golden brown.

Serve with the Dressing.
