Avocado and Pasta soup

The avocado is very popular in vegetarian cuisine, making an excellent substitute for meats in sandwiches and salads because of its high fat content. The fruit is not sweet, but fatty, distinctly yet subtly flavored, and of smooth, almost creamy texture. About 75% of an avocado's calories come from fat, most of which is monounsaturated fat. Avocados also have 60% more potassium than bananas. They are rich in B vitamins, as well as vitamin E and vitamin K. They have the highest fiber content of any fruit - including 75% insoluble and 25% soluble fiber. If you like to Know more about avocado click here.

  16. hi kalai,

    thanks for trying and letting me know. you would have baked it for a long time. Mine were crisp and crunchy and that's the way i like.. i didn't want it to be soft. adding butter might help. but i am too health conscious :)
