To-die-for ceviche

Boasting crunch, creaminess and acidity, this Mexican-style ceviche is just as the name promises. It's a great dish for sharing with plenty of tortilla chips on the side.

Choc-avocado mousse

While this may feel like you’re eating dessert for breakfast, this mousse is a fantastically healthy start to the day.

Guacamole salad

This bulked-out guacamole takes it from a condiment to a side dish, perfect alongside barbecued meats, fried haloumi or just served with a few tortillas.

Fruity avocado bliss balls

With natural sweetness from dried apricots and healthy fat from avocado, these are great to keep in the fridge or freezer for a snack. 

Yes, avocado is the secret ingredient in these fruit bites.

Avocado green goddess

There's no limit when it comes to salad, as the green goddess proves; herbs, citrus, veggies, fruit and even buttermilk make an appearance.

Sushi cones

Mixing quinoa with rice boosts the protein in these vegetarian-friendly sushi cones, as well as adding another textural dimension.

Bruschetta with avocado and cured salmon

Inspired by the producers he meets, chef Stefano de Pieri creates a modern gin-cured salmon, avocado and citrus bruschetta using Fosseys gin and avocado and citrus from the Goldups.

Avo-nana bread

This quick and easy to make bread is gluten and sugar free, it’s yummy to eat plain or toasted with a little butter and honey. After it’s cooled, slice and freeze the slices separately.

Sweet corn and sour cream loaf

This makes an excellent snack or brunch dish served with avocado and sour cream. It’s based on all the things that make a great sweet corn fritter, but in a loaf form. 

Avocado and kale Caesar salad

This salad is the perfect side for lots of meals, and hearty enough to be a meal on its own with soft boiled eggs and a creamy dressing.

Avocado, cucumber and sesame salsa

Lovely and light, this is a beautiful way to eat your morning avocado. The salsa is a great side for lots of other meals - say on top of a cold soba noodle salad, or toast.

Avocado, crispy bacon and white bean salad

Simple and delicious – and your microbiome will love it. On a non-fast day, use a whole avocado and twice the amount of pine nuts, or top with Parmesan shavings and serve with a slice of wholegrain sourdough bread.

Quick salmon blinis

Traditional salmon rillette uses butter or olive oil, but I’m using avocado to bring everything together in this super-easy canape.
