Today is one of those days that makes me absolutely love living in NYC. I went for a run this morning and when I got to Central Park there was a big race going on, so I ended up running alongside hundreds of people, which kind of made my run more fun for me. It’s not quite hot out yet, but warm enough to run in t-shirts… perfect weather in my opinion.
After my run I was in the mood for something fresh tasting… I don’t know what it is about warmer, sunny weather but it makes me crave fresh and colorful foods. I had an avocado laying about so I decided to try my hand at sushi!
Asian-Fusion Avocado Puree
- 3/4 avocado, scooped out
- 1/2 tsp wasabi powder
- 1/4 c. fresh cilantro
- pinch cayenne pepper
- 1/4 c. water
- salt to taste
I sliced up a quarter of an avocado and then used the remainder for my Asian-Fusion Avocado Puree… a little South American, a little Japanese… it turned out quite good! I used my avocado puree as the base layer on my Nori sheets, then some julienned carrots & daikon radish, topped with the fresh sliced avocado.
I thinned out the leftover avocado puree and used it as a dipping sauce for my sushi rolls. I ended up having quite a bit left over, so I had some tortilla chips help me out with the rest. ;) This was a really great, filling lunch and took no time at all to make! I think the part that took the longest was the puree just because I was adjusting seasonings and I went along. Enjoy your Sunday everyone!
