One of my friends blogged about trying out this combination (although her avocado was "grilled" - but I don't have a grill!), and although it sounded a little strange, it sounded really yummy too!
And guess what - it WAS!
Baked Avocado & Grapefruit Yumminess
(makes 2 servings)
- 1 avocado (slightly hard)
- 1 grapefruit
- 1 red or yellow onion (thinly sliced)
- soft goat cheese
- brown rice (cooked - great use for leftovers)
- balsamic vinegar
- Braggs Liquid Amino Acids (or soy sauce)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice the avocado into 8 even strips lengthwise, and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet (I just sprayed mine down with PAM). Place in the oven and cook for about 5-10 minutes (flipping once).
Meanwhile, cut the grapefruit into bite-sized pieces, and remove the separations (between the pieces). If you don't have the patience for this, that's okay! ;)
Put about 1/2 to 1 cup of brown rice on each plate, then sprinkle with a small amount of Braggs or soy sauce. Top with the thinly sliced onions, then the grapefruit. After removing the avocado from the oven (it should be slightly browned on each side), cut them into bite-sized chunks and top over the grapefruit. Sprinkle everything with the Balsamic vinegar, then top with a small amount of goat cheese.
The combination of sweet / savory / salty was utterly divine! I can't believe I just said that, but it really REALLY was!! :) Yummy + healthy = happy Beth.
