Ladies and gentlemen, this is the level of enthusiasm we all should be embracing when enjoying avocados! Nom!

Eatin Hard

Smashed avocados were one of Mazen’s very first foods, and they continue to be a staple in our house, from slices on a plate to yogamole. I consider avocados to be one of the world’s most nutritious and delicious foods. This paper just published named them one of the best first foods for babies. They contain good-for-you monounsaturated fats, plus they are a good source of fiber, folate, and contain potassium, vitamin E, and vitamin C. Raise your (little) hand if that makes you happy!

Mazen Avocado

To celebrate our love for avocados, Mazen and I made these pita pizzas. He loves anything in pizza form, and these are great for avocado lovers of all ages.

The ingredients include an assortment of fresh things like sprouts, tomato, and fresh oregano. Feel free to tweak the ingredients to what you have on hand.

I used prepared pesto (an artichoke pesto!) as the sauce, but you can also just brush the pitas with olive oil and some dried herbs. Top each pita with a heaped tablespoon of sauce, and a tomato slice.

Followed by a generous amount of shredded cheese!

Finally, dollops of Greek yogurt (or sour cream if you fancy) add the perfect cool touch. Salt and pepper to taste!
