Avocado Hung Yoghurt & Avocado Salsa

By 12th November 2018 October 7th, 2019 No Comments

I’m now 4 weeks into the Good From Scratch Book Tour and the kids are loving it.
I was walking through the supermarket in Wellington yesterday and noticed that avocados are $1 dollar each!
So let’s make the most of this time and go avocado mad!

Avocado hung yoghurt

  • 1 ltr plain yoghurt
  • 2 avocado
  • 1 lemon
  • salt and white pepper

Place the yoghurt into a damp tea towel and hang over a container in the fridge allowing it to drip overnight
Place the flesh of the avocados into a bowl and cover with the juice of the lemon. Season with salt and pepper and smash with a masher until smooth
Add the hung yoghurt and continue to smash
Store covered with a tight layer of Clingfilm to ensure the yoghurt doesn’t brown.

Add to any salad, piece of cooked fish or pretty much anything in need of a wonderful sour kick

Avocado salsa

  • 1/4 telegraph cucumber
  • 1 Tbsp capers
  • 1 Tbsp Italian parsley
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced and zested
  • 1 Tbs red onion, finely diced
  • 1 Tbsp Grove extra virgin avocado oil
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • Salt and pepper

Diced the avocado into small diced and soak in the juiced lemon with 1/4 cup of lightly salted water for a minute. Drain
Diced all the rest of the ingredients and combine.
Moisten with avocado oil

Serve with pretty much everything, works really well with white fish, paua and roasted chicken!
