Avocado mousse-rec

I love this mousse..It is an appy and delicious with crackers or toast points, but when there are leftovers, I just take a slice or scoop and make it my lunch all by itself, of course, that's if I can get to it before one of my kids

1-Tab. unflavored gelatin
2-Tab. cold water
1/2-c. boiling water
1/4-c. fresh lemon or lime juice
1-c. pureed avocado ( about 2 med avocados)
1/2-tea. ground cumin
1-tea. kosher salt
1-tea. tabasco
1/2-c. creme fraiche or sour cream
soak gelatin in cold water for 10 min. add boiling water and stir to dissolved. Set aside to cool a bit.
In another bowl combine lemon or lime juice, avocado puree,cumin,salt,tabasco.and creme fraiche, stir in the gelatin. Pour into small mold and refrigerate til mousse is completely set, at least 3 hours.
When set,unmold and place on serving platter and surround with crackers or toast. Serve immediately or place back in refrigerator to stay cold..Serves 6-8
enjoy,
kadesma

Great Pa It's been so hot that something like this in smaller portions say individuals would make a nice refreshing part of lunch. A small slice on some soft cold butter lettuce maybe? woth some crackers and a slice of lemon or lime if we want more tang..emm. Think I'll make some for tomorrow.

That sounds both delicious and beautiful.

Have you ever thought of putting a garnish in the bottom of the mold before you pour the mousse in to chill?
You could cut petal shapes out of a yellow pepper, use an olive slice for the center, and a few parsley or celery leaves around it. That's just one suggestion. You could do any design you can think of.
