I saw a gorgeous picture on Pinterest the other day of the most lush, perfect avocado stuffed with bacon, cheddar and onion. Stuffed avocado presentation? Why didn't I think of that? I set about making my own version with whatever I had on hand. I was overzealous in my 'stuffing', which ended up dwarfing my slightly overripe and fragile little avocados. Instead, I heaped the stuffing onto a plate and draped avocado slices on top. I was really pleased for this dish turned out. Not only it is wholesome and flavourful, it can be made in under 20 minutes.
To make, finely dice 1/2 sweet onion and two mini zucchinis. Heat 1 tsp olive oil in a small pan, then add onion and zucchini. While they started to cook, I chopped up four Veggie Products' Mediterranean Chickpea Patties from Costco and added them to the pan. Once the mixture has browned a little, transfer to a mixing bowl. Add 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes, 1 can drained and rinsed black beans, a handful of chopped cilantro, 4T salsa (or to taste) and the juice of one lime.
Top with avocado slices and Crispy Onion (another Costco-sourced product).
