Recipe: Stuffed Avocado

2 persons / 15min


We love avocado's, palta's in Peru, all over Latin America. Did you know that the word 'avocado' comes from the Aztec word of 'testicle' because of it's shape? Maybe that's why we call it palta in Peru...

Here the veggie recipe, but you can replace the beetroot and pumpkin by shredded cooked chicken and tomato or by shrimps and cucumber.


  • 2 avocado's
  • 1 beetroot, cut in mini cubes
  • pumpkin: same amount and cut as the beetroot

  • 1cm chillies, chopped
  • lime zest of 1 lime
  • 1tbsp red onion
  • 1tbsp good olive oil
  • 2tbsp of mayonnaise


  1. Boil the beetroot and pumpkin and let both cool down
  2. Mix all ingredients and stuff the avocado
