Beer Battered Avocados with Cilantro Lime Dip


You saw it HERE first my friends! This recipe takes me back to the OG days of Grow Your Roots in 0214 at The Carp Farmers Market. This is the dish that people lined up for at our little vegan stand! These and our Burgers, which you can now find here.

And if you haven’t tried these Beer Battered Avocados at the Market or at my restaurant, oh my goshhhh, you are in for a treat. It’s truly the best appetizer you’ll ever eat in your life. And yes, I’m that confident. These Beer Battered Avocados are:

  • Crispy on the outside

  • Soft in the middle

  • Salty

  • Like a vegan “fish” from fish n chips

You’ll have to take my word on this one. These little guys are amazing, and worth every single calorie.

For the avocado - you want the avo to be *just* ripe*, or even a little under ripe. That way your avo isn't too soft to handle and fry.

For beer, any brand should do! My favourites are Beau's Lug Tread and Corona. You could also skip the beer entirely and use club soda instead, but it's not quite as good!

If you don't own a deep fryer, you can also fry them up in a pot of oil. But, be super careful.

If you don't have a thermometer to know the temperature of the oil in a pot, just test one avo out at a time before dumping them all in not knowing if the oil is hot enough! You should get a good bubble and sizzle when putting them in when it's hot enough.
