25 Nov How to Have Avocado With Everything
Avocado will never go out of style.
Smooth, creamy, and an awesome addition to just about every dish under the sun, avocado isn’t only delicious, but it’s also loaded with that good fat everyone’s been talking about.
The buttery fruit (yes, fruit!) is packed with alpha-linolenic acid, better known as omega-3 fatty acid, and oleic acid. They’re also a great source of pantothenic acid, dietary fiber, vitamin K, copper, folate, vitamin B6, potassium, vitamin E, and vitamin C.
Alright, so that’s all the good stuff. Time to eat avocado with everything.

Why yes, avocados are truly great in desserts. Avocados are fairly neutral in flavor, but that buttery texture helps amplify whatever dessert—in this case, brownies(!)—you decide to sneak it in.

Well, if we’re going to make brownies, we may as well also make pie! Think of a mousse pie. Now think of a mousse pie that you’re not going to feel bad about eating. It’s as creamy as a cream pie can get!
Because smashed avocado is so pliable, it’s great in any type of sauce. Paired with pasta? You have yourself a winning dish.

And to one-up that pasta dish, here’s an avocado mac and cheese recipe, because mac and cheese is one of the best duos in existence.
So what’s the moral of the story here?
For one, avocado is great in everything and is one of the most versatile foods ever. From salads to desserts, it’s a great way to get all of those essential nutrients.
The main takeaway, though, is that you can sneak healthy food into anything.
And so, enter microgreens. Like avocado, you can take a dish to the next level by adding some microgreens, and also amplifying the nutritional content of your meal.
And, if you grow in an Urban Cultivator, you can grow microgreens all year long, meaning you can add microgreens to every single dish.
