Avocados provide a wonderful plant-based fat which helps to beautify and moisturize the skin.
This recipe comes from a love for Mexican cuisine and spicy Sichuan (Szechwan) Chinese food. It gives a great fusion twist to a popular appetizer. And don’t forget, it’s so easy to make!
Serves: 6 to 8.
Prep time: 5 minutes.
3 ripe avocados
½ cup red bell peppers, deseeded and finely diced
2 tablespoons miso
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon Chinese flower pepper (optional)
Mash avocados and miso until smooth. Mix in remaining ingredients. Serve the same day prepared.
Note: The Chinese flower pepper is called “huajiao” in Chinese and can be found in most Asian supermarkets. However, it’s an optional spice!
