Last week we were lucky enough to be able to participate in Cómetelo, one of the most popular programmes on Canal Sur, our regional television channel.
In addition, in the programme they prepared a dish dedicated to our star product, the organic avocado. They prepared Avocado Salmorejo, a very easy to cook but delicious dish. Us, of course, have already tried it at home!
For those of you who don’t know, traditional salmorejo is a cold soup made with tomato, olive oil, bread, salt and a little garlic. In this case we replaced the tomato with avocado, and the result is spectacular!
Here we leave you the recipe, enjoy it!
- 2 ripe, organic avocados
- 1 organic lemon
- 1 clove of garlic. Make sure it is small or, if necessary, just use half clove
- 3 slices of sandwich bread without crusts.
- A pinch of salt and pepper
- 5 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
- For the toppings, 100 g of diced Serrano ham and a boiled egg
PREPARATION OF THE ORGANIC AVOCADO SALMOREJO
First of all, boil the egg so that it is ready afterwards and you don’t have to wait for it. Meanwhile, peel the two avocados and place them in a large bowl. Add a clove of garlic (it is best to remove the middle part), the 3 slices of sandwich bread with the crusts removed, the squeezed lemon juice (use as much as you want), pepper, salt and olive oil. Blend it all together in a blender and, once ready, chill it for an hour.
Then all we have to do is to serve it in bowls and add the previously cooked and chopped egg and the diced Serrano ham.
And that’s it! See how easy and simple it is? Now it’s time to put it into practice.
Have a happy week!
