Broiled Parmesan Avocado
The avocado is a tree that is native to South Central Mexico, classified as a member of the flowering plant family. Avocado also refers to the tree’s fruit, which is botanically a large berry containing a single seed.
The avocado is a unique type of fruit. Most fruit consists primarily of carbohydrates, while avocado is high in healthy fats.
Avocados are heart-healthy. provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins, and folic acid and are a good source of fiber and folate.
As well, avocados also act as a “nutrient booster” by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha and beta-carotene and lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit.

Paula!! Thank you!! I’m eating this at about 15 min after I read the recipe. My new fave!
Yay!!! it’s so good isn’t it? Sometimes I just do not want to cook when I’m home alone and that’s so easy and so yummy!
What on earth is broiling??? There is no setting on my oven for that.
Really? ok, most do – or at least the ovens I’ve seen do. So think about it like ‘toasting’. Turn the top heating element on 450ish – you want it really hot. Then ‘toast’ the top of the avocado so that the cheese melts. The avocado will get warm but not hot & falling apart.
I knew I was gonna put parm on my avocado for dinner, but it sounded bland. I googled those keywords, found this and am SO happy I tried it. The lime really just adds so much.
Looks so yumm and certainly pinning it up on my to do list. Will try and update soon. TIA
