This recipe is a little unconventional in my opinion, I have never seen or eaten Avocado fries in a restaurant or anywhere else, but they seem to be quite popular on the internet these days so I decided to give it a go. I really like avocados, one of my favourite ways of eating it is with just a little sprinkle of salt and pepper. Simple and delicious. I love the creamy texture and the beautiful green colour, it makes me feel I am eating really healthy. Contrary to the fatty perception of avocados, they are really good for you. They are high in Oleic acid that helps prevent Breast Cancer. It is also high in carotenoid lutein and an excellent source of glutathione, an important antioxidant that researchers say is important in preventing aging, cancer, and heart disease. Health benefits aside, these avocado fries are a great snack and are perfect for entertaining. I hope you enjoy this recipe.
