recipe by Saskia Gregson-Williams

We have gone a bit mad for avocados lately. They are so full of goodness, including great skin enhancing fats, that we find it hard to go a day without one. For a simple but different way to eat them try this recipe!

Serves 4


2 avocados

4 handfuls of leafy greens

8 tbsp hummus

For the Sauce:

2 small carrots (makes 1/2 a cup when chopped)

1/4 cup goji berries, soaked in warm water until plump

1cm knob ginger

juice 1/2 a lemon

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

2 tbsp water

Wash and chop the carrots into small cubes, peal the ginger and place in a blender with all other ingredients for the sauce. Blend for 3 minutes or until combined well, but still chunky. Then, place a handful of leafy greens on 4 plates (we told you that this was simple). Half and de-skin the avocado, spoon in 2 tbsp of hummus into each avocado and place on the bed of greens. Finally pour 1/4 of the sauce mixture in and around the avocado boat and enjoy!
