Chef Efi Nahon, executive chef of Taboon, uses hummus as a base to create a delicious crispy avocado dish.
We’ve all experienced the disappointment of an overripe avocado. Slicing open this creamy fruit to find that its usually bright green flesh is speckled with unsightly brown is more than a little disappointing. Next time you let your avocado over-ripen, don’t despair; you can salvage your creamy treat by turning it into a hearty soup, healthy smoothie, and even ice cream.holy grail of ingredients — foods that actually taste good while being good for you. However, picking a ripe avocado can be a game of guesswork, unless you know what you are doing.
Check out the stem of the avocado to see if your fruit is past its prime. If you remove the nob and see green, your avocado is ripe; however, if you see brown, it may be best to hide the fruit in a smoothie rather than display it in a salad.
