I love cooking, I really do, but sometimes I just lack the time to put a lot of effort into my meals. Any time I find a way to make something delicious in less time, I get pretty excited.
My latest food obsession combines tuna and avocado, two favourites of mine.
Being pesco-vegetarian, I tend to get most of my protein from legumes. Although I do eat fish, it’s on rare occasion. I could never give up sushi, to be perfectly honest, though.
The other day I had a craving for tuna but wasn’t really feeling the classic tuna and mayo combo. So I switched it up. Instead of mayo, I mashed up my tuna with and avocado, lemon, and some pepper and basil.
Once it’s combined, you can spread onto crackers or make a sandwich. I opted for the sandwich route.
I find that cooking and baking make me feel better when I’m down. I don’t know why…it just does.
The last few days have been pretty awesome. I bought a bunch of avocados so I’ve been thinking of different things I could do with them. I’ve had them on mini pizzas, in pasta, blended up for some guacamole, and even on sandwiches.
My next avocado project will be a soup! Probably made tomorrow…just in time for a lovely picnic in the park!
The other day I made rice with lemon and almonds. I also put in some parsley and yellow peppers, as well as some ginger.
I’m working on this whole pictures of food thing…it’s actually more difficult than you would think!
I also decided to make my roommates and I a little treat, and one that also happens to be vegan friendly if made with soy milk!
Blueberry and raspberry cobbler…it is a little bit of heaven. I think a peach cobbler will be in order for the next round of deserts.
And as for my avocado fix of the day…
pasta, with pesto, garlic, tomato sauce, yellow peppers, and avocado, obviously. Also, I put a few cubes of brie on top. So good.
