As you may know now I really like avocado, here some of the reasons (Wikipedia helped me with this because I had forgotten the figures):
- About 75% of an avocado’s calories come from fat, most of which is monounsaturated fat.
- On a 100 g basis, avocados have 35% more potassium (485 mg) than bananas (358 mg). They are rich in B vitamins, as well as vitamin E and vitamin K.
- Avocados have a high fibre content of 75% insoluble and 25% soluble fibre.
Last week I bought a whole bowl for a pound in one of the little shops near home and I was thinking to try something different from the well-known Guacamole we made some time ago.
In my recent trip to Spain I bought some Queso tierno and Jamon serrano (and some other good stuff: recipes to follow) so I decided to give it a go and combine those flavours in this easy skewer.
I miss these items so much so I always try to stock up on them when I head to Spain. Tim usually does the same when he heads back to Wales as well (although he tends to just bring beer back!)
