In celebration of the national avocado day in the US on July 31, here are some avocado-infused Arab dishes worth trying.
National Avocado Day: 6 avocado-infused Arab dishes to try
Smoky avocado muttabal
Muttabal is traditionally made with eggplant, but for this recipe just switch it out for an avocado and you get a smoky and sour dip.
Avocado pistachio ice cream
A creamy, smooth, nutty and sweet treat that everyone will enjoy. It’s great for the summer heat and a perfect little snack.
Avocado fruit cocktail
The humble fruit cocktail — an Arab staple — is always best with a smooth layer of pureed avocado. Add a drizzle of honey and some chopped nuts for an ideal sweet treat.
Made with all the regular ingredients found in guacamole, this Arabized version has the surprise elements of pomegranate seeds, pomegranate molasses and sumac for a hint of tanginess.
Add diced avocado for a spin on the traditional Levantine salad that is made up of parsley, tomatoes, mint, burghul, olive oil and lemon juice.
A thick, rich, and refreshing smoothie made from avocados, a milk of choice, dates, honey and ice all blended together.
