Avocados: Special Ingredient To Make Leftovers New Again

(NAPSA) – The celebrations may be over, but the leftovers are a gift that keeps on giving-breakfasts, lunches, dinners, soups and late-night snacks. But just because you’re going back for a third or fourth helping of those tasty morsels, that doesn’t mean it has to be the same-old, same-old.

Leftovers from family get-togethers and holiday feasts alike can be revitalized simply by adding creamy, fresh Hass avocados to your dishes.

The delicate and delicious taste of Hass avocados is the perfect complement to hearty holiday leftovers. Beyond its flavor, this luscious fruit has many nutritional properties that can be part of a healthy diet. In fact, avocados contribute nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. And due to their mono- and polyunsaturated fat content, avocados are a healthy substitution for foods rich in saturated fat.

Lovin’ Leftovers

Here are a few suggestions for how to pair up avocados with your favorite leftovers:

  • Create a delicious wrap with roasted meat and fresh veggies, topped off with mashed avocado as a spread.
  • Add avocado slices to leftover green salads to give them a refreshing creamy flavor.
  • Make your traditional leftover turkey sandwich spectacular this year by adding slices of fresh Hass avocado.
  • If you’re putting out a smorgasbord of leftovers, make a bowl of guacamole that can be mixed in with whatever people serve themselves.

One idea that will have people gobbling down leftover turkey is this original creation from Chef Chris Schlesinger of East Coast Grill in Cambridge, Mass.:
