Best avocado recipes (vegetarian)

Hello all. I have just discovered how delicious avocados are (I can't believe I just discovered this either) and I want to start incorporating them into the entire days meals.

Post here your favorite avocado recipes that don't use meat, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so that new and veteran avocado lovers have easy access to an avocado meal encyclopedia!

The first recipe I want to try is a simple avocado toast, 1/2 mashed avocado on a slice of bread with a pan fried egg ontop. What can i add to the mashed avocado to make it bolder and or tastier?

Apologies, the avocado lovers thread is asking basically the same thing... I'll let the moderators decide if this thread should be kept or not :O

Some finely minced garlic and/or a little cumin is a nice addition to avocado.
A little diced tomato is good, too.

Anything you would put in guacamole, e.g., lemon or lime juice, a litte bit of pepper sauce, etc.

You could make a vegetarian Tortilla Soup and float fresh avocado in it.

The best thing I like on my avocado is a spoon.

Avocado sandwich
I had a friend from Guatemala who made a sandwich of sliced avocado, minced onion, salt, and a chopped up hard boiled egg on a keiser roll. I dont eat eggs, so i leave it out, but it tasted great and quick and simple.

Guacamole burger.
Use a veggie burger ( I prefer Morning star farms ' grillers' , found in the frozen section in a green box). cook burger as directed, place on keiser roll, top with guacamole, chopped onion, chopped tomatoes, sprouts, lettuce, cilantro

Guacamole Tacos
taco shell, stuffed with guacamole, top with lettuce, onion, tomato, olives, shredded cheddar cheese, beans if desired...

You can also get this made at taco bell, problem is they have no 'pre-set' button for this, so it seems to confuse them, trying to punch in your order, and having the back be able to make it. They also charge you for a side of guac when they do this, even though there is no meat.

larrys ideas sound pretty good! I would advise you however to get a different brand. MorningStar uses unsafe ingredients. I prefer Gardein brand and those are really tasty.

You can do a guacamole with sour cream, lemon juice, sea salt, cracked peppercorn, tomatoes, onions and cumin.
Avocado on a sandwich is delicious.
Cheese toquitos with guacamole ... mmm
spicy eggs with avacado

Avocado sandwich on whole wheat bread or toast: Sliced avocado, sprinkled with salt, sliced tomato (can also sprinkle with salt), lettuce, and alfalfa sprouts (optional). You can also add sliced Swiss, Gruyere, cheddar, etc.
Spread mayonnaise on one side of the bread, then add the other ingredients. You can also spread one side of the bread with soft goat cheese.

It would be kinda messy if you spread mayo on both sides of the bread.
