Avocado with Pumkin and Olive oils, Sesame Seeds and Coffee

Avocado with pumpkin seed oil and olive oil and sesame seeds

Avocado (Persea americana) is an exotic fruit, botanically classified as a berry and it belongs to the plant family Lauraceae. The root of the word is in the Nahuatl word ahuacatl, which means testicle. It was later renamed acquiring the spanish name aguacate.

The plant was able to develop in part due to giant mammals eating them and secreted the seed far from the tree. Hence the cultivation of avocados today is only possible through man’s hand and not through “natural” ways.

In some cultures where avocados grow, these are used with sweet components (like in Brazil), while others (like Japan, Mexico, Caribean) use them mostly for salty dishes.
I grew up with avocados in connection with salt, pepper, lemon and olive oil, alone or in salads and on bread. But today also the avocado has become a victim of my coffee universe.

Just take an avocado half (without the seed) and fill the hole with some pumpkin seed oil (1 ts) and olive oil (2 ts). Add some salt and pepper to taste and just a light film of instant Espresso Coffee. For the taste, texture and optic, use a few black sesame seeds.
