“Avocado.....what a yummy little green fruit - or is it a vegg? The seed thing confuses me. OH but I do love them! This is a little spin on the traditional guacamole. Found this recipe at napastyle.com.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat grill or grill pan to medium high heat.
  2. Place peeled and pitted avocado halves in a bowl. Drizzle with 1/4 cup olive oil and lemon juice (to prevent oxidation), and sprinkle with a good amount of salt and pepper.
  3. Douse a paper towel with some olive oil, then swipe it across the grill so the avocados won't stick.
  4. Place avocados on the grill, cut side down and grill for 1 full minute.
  5. Meanwhile, preheat a saute pan and add the 1/2 cup of olive oil and minced garlic. Saute until the garlic turns a light brown.
  6. Add basil and saute until wilted and transfer to a large glass or ceramic bowl.
  7. Take the avocados off the grill and add to the bowl. Mash together well with a fork.
  8. Add sour cream and stir. Then add the Parmesan cheese and stir.
  9. Serve immediately with chips or crackers.
