I normally don’t associate avocados with French cooking, but when I was in France, I saw avocados used in salads, soups and as amuse-gueules.
This easy avocado recipe for avocado mousse makes an easy refreshing first course or light lunch.
Mousse à l’Avocat recipe
- 1 scallion, cleaned and sliced (reserve some for garnishing)
- 1 avocado
- 1/2 cucumber, peeled with seeds removed
- 2 Tablespoons plain yogurt
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
- fleur de sel, freshly ground pepper
1. Cut the avocado in half. Remove the seed. Scoop out the flesh and place in the blender.
2. Add the chopped scallion. Cut up the cucumber and add to the blender.
3. Add the yogurt and squeeze in the lemon juice. Blend.
Season the mousse with salt and pepper.
Place in a small bowl, sprinkle with the reserved onion and top with a cucumber slice.
