They’re delicious, they’re nutritious, and thanks to President Trump’s potential trade war with Mexico, they’re on the verge of becoming very expensive.

Here are four healthy avocado recipes that will change the way you brunch.
Crispy, creamy, and rich avocado fries are light years beyond French fries in nutrition and taste. This simple appetizer requires only five ingredients and can be whipped up in less than 10 minutes. Throw together one of these dipping sauces that are good enough to drink, and you won’t even want to move on to the entrée course.
Vegan Avocado Ceviche
Traditional ceviche is made with raw fish that’s been cured in citrus and seasoned with chiles, but this avocado ceviche is vegan friendly. The richness of the avocado mimics the texture and mouthfeel of salmon, tuna, or other fatty fishes classically used in ceviche. Cilantro, jalapeño pepper, and finely diced red onion add a pop of heat and complexity, and at only 100 calories per serving, this dish makes for a light and refreshing brunch.
Creamy Avocado Tomato Soup
Tomato soup is a comfort food staple most often associated with Campbell’s and a grilled cheese, but this creamy avocado tomato soup is so unique and creative that it would make Andy Warhol blush. The luscious and silky texture of tomato soup is traditionally achieved with heavy cream, but the fattiness of the avocado acts as the perfect substitute.
Spicy Avocado Hummus
Hummus is definitely played out, but spicy avocado hummus with mint, cilantro, and serrano chile is a combination that will wake those taste buds right up. No cooking is required for this one — just a food processor and some tortilla chips.
