It’s all about making easy recipes in the summer so that you can maximize your time spent outdoors. I love avocados because they’ve got the good type of fats that will fuel you and keep you full for longer periods of time in addition to being absolutely delicious. I like turning my avocados into little boats and filling them with veggies and legumes to make a complete nutritious appetizer or meal. In these spicy lentil avocado boats, I season the lentils with ground cumin, onion powder, garlic, pink himalayan salt and red pepper flakes. The cumin spiced lentils create a distinct flavour profile. Cumin is an herb that’s often found in taco seasonings, Mexican, Spanish, Middle Eastern and Indian cooking. Cumin is the seed of a small plant in the parsley family and is high in iron, supports good digestion and has anti-carcinogenic properties. Topping the avocado boats off with shredded red cabbage, cilantro and a spritz of lime juice gives the recipe an excellent crunch and pop of flavour! Now go make this recipe in under 30 minutes and get back to doing what you do best in the summer.
