I don’t like avocados too much, so I don’t know if this is true or not. I think I remember hearing that you can nuke underripe avocados to soften them. True or not?

Dance like no oneís watching, sing like no oneís listening, but cook like EVERYONE is eating!

I tried that way back, but it didn't help - softened them a little, but the flavor didn't improve, as it does, with ripening.

I'm not a big fan of avocados, except in guacamole - especially in the summer, with dead ripe tomatoes, and those favorite peppers, the Hanoi Markets. As much as I love garlic, IMO garlic seems to cover up some of the flavors in it; I still tried the last new recipe, even though it had the garlic, and the same thing seemed to happen.
