The vegetable for this month is avocado. I have a love-hate relationship with avocados. Love them in small chunks for 5 minutes then I hate the browning leftovers that have to be thrown away. As the twins have started eating a lot less, my Dr.Sister advised that I make sure that the little they did eat was calorie dense - avocado is a very healthy calorie dense food and the girls do love fried eggs. So here's my recipe for avocado cheese omelette for twins and mommy.
Diced onions and tomatoes
Avocado chunks cut into sizes that babies can comfortably "chew"
3 eggs (because this was for the 3 of us)
Olive oil for frying
Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and add the diced onions and tomatoes. Fry until the veggies are soft. Stir constantly of it could end up with one side burnt and one side undone.
I prefer to add the shredded cheese into the eggs, so break eggs into a bowl, whisk and add the shredded cheese. Add to vegetables in frying pan.
Stir until egg is done and has no liquid parts showing.
Fold in avocado chunks and turn off the cooker. As avocado does not need cooking, I just added it in the frying pan so it blends into the egg and absorbs some of the taste.
Twin Toddler Verdict
Sugar liked it and ate quite a bit. She had no issues with the avocado chunks. Spice has been VERY selective with her solids lately plus she was nursing a cold so she was not interested. I give this dish an unenthusiastic pass
Twin Mama Verdict
This is a really heavy and filling meal.I felt stuffed after a few mouthfuls. It tasted good after I added salt to mine. This dish can work as meal for parents and babies with the addition of salt and maybe spices to the parent version.
I like omelettes because you can add just about anything into them. Since my girls love fried eggs, I've had success with introducing vegetables through their omelettes. My feelings for avocados still haven't changed however. Much as I enjoyed this dish, I still had 3 other avocados that eyeballed me as they grew softer and mushier on the kitchen counter. They have since gone to their forever home in the trash without ever seeing the inside of a frying pan. My bad!
