Normally I would eat avocados in salads or on their own, or make them into guacamole dips, sandwich spreads and even pasta sauces that wouldn’t require any cooking. Check out some of my no-cook avocado recipes:
I was inspired to cook them this time after watching an episode of 3-Plus-1 (3菜1汤) on Channel 8 sometime back. Surprisingly they actually tasted quite good in a stir fry. In fact, the avocado made this dish taste a little more luscious, rich and buttery with a slightly eggy flavour to it. Yes, I always associate avocados with eggs because they really taste like eggs, lol. It’s so quick and easy to make as the stir frying needs to be brief to not overcook the chicken breast as it may dry out the meat. If you like the taste of avocados, do give this recipe a try. Enjoy!
