Avocado with Mushroom Filling



  • Button mushrooms, 175 g (6 oz) minced in the blender
  • Pesto sauce, 3 tbs
  • 1 large ripe avocado, cut in half and stoned
  • Lettuce leaves to garnish

Steam the minced mushrooms for 3 minutes. Cool, and drain off the juices. Mix the mushrooms with the pesto and place inside the hollow of the avocado halves. Place on a bed of lightly dressed lettuce leaves to serve.

Mincing fresh raw mushrooms in the blender takes a few seconds only, and gives a better texture for this dish than chopping them by hand. Mixed with pesto sauce and heaped into the cavity of a ripe avocado, this makes a delectable starter.

Serves: 2
