Its World Avocado Month this June and this makes it the ideal time to enjoy the avocado season. South African Avocado Growers’ Association (SAAGA) shared this recipe for avo gardens with Farm Fare. Recall the joys of summer with these beautiful little creations. Choose from a vegan or vegetarian option below or experiment by making your own. Meat eaters are welcome to add biltong, bacon, chicken or whatever your favourite is.

Avo gardens

This “recipe” does not require master cooking skills nor a green thumb! Simply cut your ripe and ready avocado in half, remove the pip, squeeze over half a lemon and start filling to create a beautiful (and edible) delight!
