Book Synopsis

Go beyond guacamole and enjoy avocados in 70 "creative--and seriously delicious" recipes that make the most of this popular superfood (Prevention).

Research shows that adding an avocado a day to your diet can improve your overall health, but even most avocado lovers don't know what to do with them beyond adding a slice or two to a sandwich or mashing one into guacamole.

Here are 70 simple and delicious recipes for everything from breakfast to dessert, including:

- Avocado Green Curry Noodles
- Tequila, Citrus and Ginger Stuffed Avocados
- Avocado Waffles
- Avocado Key Lime Pie

Author Lara Ferroni educates readers on the various kinds of avocados and how to pick them, store them, and even grow them! Home cooks will learn how to use avocado butter, oil, and honey, and how to incorporate avocados into any every meal of the day.
