Avocado

Avocados are a great source of good fat, folic acid, potassium, and a whole slew of vitamins. (source)

I’d like to work them into the Wee Bear’s diet, but most recipes call for them to be served fresh, as a garnish or dressing.  During the week, the WB eats most of her solid food at daycare, so that isn’t an option.  I did a bit of searching and found some recipes that better incorporate avocado, so I don’t have to worry about spoilage.

These avocado eggrolls, based on a Cheesecake Factory recipe, might hold up well in the lunch box.  I won’t bother with the dip, the WB is the only toddler who has no interest in dipping things.  I also need to find allergy-safe wonton wrappers.

These avocado carrot raviolis sound divine, if labor intensive.  For the WB, I’ll saute with garlic and plenty of EVOO, and leave out the almonds and fancy presentation.  http://garlicandseasalt.blogspot.com/2011/02/roasted-carrot-and-avocado-ravioli-with.html

I’ll have to buy a thermos for this tomato-avocado soup.  It’s a chilled soup, so it’s perfect for daycare.  Except that she’ll probably get it everywhere.
