Strange But Good: Peanut Avocado Sauce

The secret is always in the sauce.

 

Literally.

I am sure someone is going to say they’ve done this before, but maybe not on top of this eggy breakfast item.  I’m not sure if it’s an egg crust or what, but it was good.  And it was made ever more strange with a peanut nutty topping.

Peanut Avocado Egg-cake

 

Peanut flour and avocado sauce.  Avocados are a fairly neutral flavor, and they add amazing texture to foods.  I love to use them in scones, chocolate cake, and shamrock shakes to add healthy fat and a creamy smoothness.  So why not in a sauce?

I mixed it together with a little almond milk and stevia before spreading it across a cinnamon-egg “crust” and adding blackberries and jicama to the top.  I purposefully left little pieces of the avocado in there… you know, for added strangeness.

If you are a texture junkie like I am, you will adore this.  From the smooth spread to the juicy berries to the crisp jicama, each bite is a party in your mouth (that’s what she said).

Peanut Avocado Eggs

Peanut Avocado Eggs

  • 1/4 avocado
  • 1 T peanut flour
  • Stevia, to taste
  • Almond milk (add to desired consistency)
  • 1/2 C egg whites
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Optional toppings: blackberries, jicama

 

In a small bowl, mash avocado.  Mix in peanut flour, stevia, and almond milk, adjusting to desired consistency.  Set aside.

In another bowl, whisk together egg whites and cinnamon.  Place in a small pan and cook over med-high heat until almost done.  Flip to finish off the top.  It will form a sort of egg white pancake.

Place egg whites on plate, spread with peanut sauce, and top as desired.  Enjoy!

I realize the photo quality is even lower than usual.  It’s been a tough couple of weeks… sorry…

What’s the strangest way you’ve used avocado?

Have you had jicama before?  It’s like if an apple and a potato had a love child.  In a good way.

    im sure this comes as no surprise to you, but I’ve made a peanut avocado mash. but i’ve never put it on eggs, i used it as a spread on toast. but i’m firm believer anything with avocado is amazing, and let’s be real a peanut avocado mix? amazing :)

    I don’t know why, but the little arrow pointing out the avocado chunk literally has me laughing out loud. I have never tried this but it’s definitely something that I can see in my future! And yes to jicama – good so many ways … your jicama nachos, sliced with cayenne or cinnamon, sliced plain, in salads, and more!

      It seems like everyone is on the avocado kick. I think I want brighter foods because I’m craving spring…

      I don’t think you can get it in stores. I buy mine on herb.com. You can use my discount code – USO924 – for $5-10 off your order. :)

    I always love seeing your crazy concoctions! This recipe reminds me that I need to use avocados in more things – I usually just crave the full flavor and eat them plain or in guac.
