Stuffed Avocado – Israeli Style

Stuffed Avocado Salad Israeli Style

Today I wanted to show you a healthy stuffed avocado recipe. Something savory for a change! 
Avocado is simply such a wonderful invention. There are so many different things to make with it. 

To start off this is actually a vegetarian stuffed avocado version. Now that I think of it, it is actually completely vegan! As I am writing this it is actually World Vegan Day. So what a perfect coincidence for such a healthy recipe.

My inspiration for this recipe

I got inspired for this recipe on my trip to Tel Aviv, Israel last year. We ate a lot of the famous typical salad there! Israeli salad is a chopped salad of finely diced tomato, onion, cucumber, and bell or chili peppers. It has been described as the „most well-known national dish of Israel“, and is a standard accompaniment to most Israeli meals. What I really love about this salad is the unique Cilantro taste. You will learn how to make it in a bit. It is super easy and inexpensive to make. 
Since I am here in Panama now and there are avocados around every corner I wanted to try this recipe with a slightly new twist. I know there are a lot of bakes stuffed avocado recipes, but I have tried baking them and honestly I am just not the biggest fan of it. So I came up with this salad dish thats perfect for a side of your lunch or dinner. 

Israeli Salad 

First we start by making the salad. You really just need a couple of very basic veggies. The only exotic ingredient you need – and that is a must for this recipe – is the Cilantro. Because of this it gives the salad this very specific aroma!

Next you take your veggies and chop them up super thin. Little cubes work best for the tomatoes and peppers. I used an orange and a yellow pepper because like this I got so many different colors for the salad. To be honest I am not sure why, but I somehow forgot to put the cucumber on the picture. Therefore, you will also need a cucumber!

Once you chopped up everything and have a nice rainbow of colors you can throw them all together into a big bowl and mix them up. After that it is time to season your salad. This is super simple, since the Cilantro will give it most of its taste. Finely chop up the Cilantro and mix under the veggies. Next take the juice of a lime and mix again well. Add salt and pepper and ready is your Israeli salad.

The rest is pretty simple. Take your avocado and carefully cut it in half. Take out the big seed. With a spoon take out a bit more of its flesh to fit more of the salad in there. Now fill it up with your Israeli salad and its all ready to be served. As simple as that 🙂 
Now I know you will be left with a lot more salad than you can fit into the avocado. They avocado really just serves as the eye catcher. You can always fill it up again with the remaining salad or just keep snacking out of the bowl!

Fitness Food

Most importantly the recipe is really healthy. It is filled with so many important vitamins for you and on top of that totally low carb. This is even a keto stuffed avocado recipe! If you eat this with some chicken breast it is the perfect fitness meal. Just be careful with the avocado as it obviously does have a lot of fat. Healthy fat though 🙂 

I really hope you enjoyed this savory recipe. If you are looking for another great low carb recipe I can really recommend my zucchini pasta. In case you are in the mood for something sweet why not check out my carrot cake bars. Also you can hit up my YouTube for more recipe videos.
