TechCrunch – If you’ve ever been on a mission to make the most of your avocado and onions, then you’ve probably tried something similar.
A few years ago, I started out with the idea of a salad bar in my kitchen and it all started with a sweet onion, followed by bacon and then some creamy avocado.
Now that I’ve got an avocado bar in the works, I figured it was time to put my avocado in a creamy sandwich, so I took my favorite ingredients, chopped up a little and tossed it in a coconut cream sauce.
What you’re about to see is an avocado sandwich made from the top-notch ingredients you need to make an avocado salad bar: an onion, bacon, avocado, avocado butter and a little creamy avocado sauce.
I mean, you can eat an avocado as a sandwich, too, but this avocado bar will satisfy your sweet tooth for just a bit longer.
Ingredients: 1 cup chopped onions (cut in half lengthwise) 2 tbsp.
butter 1 cup coconut cream 1 tbsp.
chopped avocado 1/2 cup shredded avocado 1 tbsp ground cumin 1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro leaves 1 tbsp lime juice (or more) 1 tsp lime zest (or juice of one lime) 1/4 tsp salt (or to taste) Instructions In a large bowl, combine onions, butter, coconut cream, cumin, lime juice, cilantro, lime zests and salt.
Whisk together until well combined.
Add avocado and avocado butter.
Pour into a sandwich pan and sprinkle with chopped avocado.
Sprinkle with a little coconut cream and a few sprinkles of cilantro.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, until the avocado is cooked through and crisp.
Serve with fresh avocado, sour cream and lime wedges.
This avocado sandwich will keep well in the refrigerator for up to a week.
Recipe Notes Coconut cream sauce is the key to the creamy avocado effect.
You don’t need to use all of the cream.
It’s enough to keep things creamy and sweet and not overly creamy.
