I can't say I've ever cooked it- I've only ever eaten it raw. Do you want to cook it in something? I think it's possible to cook it in something (a casserole, for example) or even heat it in a wrap that's meant to be hot. I've never tried just heating and eating it, though- not sure how it would affect the taste.<br><br>

I've cooked avacado into eggs and also mixed it with cheese as an enchilada filling (that one is in one of the moosewood cookbooks but it has been a while so i forget which one). Honestly, I prefer sticking to just cheese cooked into each of those dishes and then slicing fresh avacado on top.<br><br>
I've heard of a recipe for an avacado cream sauce but I haven't tried it - if I can get the recipe I'll let you know <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I've sauteed it lightly with pasta, and it was quite nice... it was years ago though, and I can't remember the recipe... hmmm I wish I could... I had compleatly forgotten until I saw this thread... now I gotta find that recipe again.

My dh who really is a good cook but likes to try new things cooked some in last nights meal. I knew it wasn't a good idea from trying it myself once and told him so but he decided to try it anyway.<br><br>
Our kids who are not afraid to try new foods went for it first and both made a horrible face and spit it out. He took a bite and said, "You know, I think you are right, These are meant to be eaten raw".<br><br>
But it sounds like a few of you like them cooked so to each his/her own.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy">

I came across a wonderful book the other day. It is called THE AVOCADO COOKBOOK. It has nearly 100 recipes for cooking Avocados. It's a gem. I can strongly reccomend it. I think it will neet your requirement.<br><br>
It's available from Lulu.com in paperback or by download.

Seems like a waste of avocado to me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">

You can put it in tortilla soup. When I put avocado in soup though, I tend to put raw avocado in the bottom of my bowl and just pour the hot soup over it. That way it doesn't cook too much.

Avocado fries, yummy!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Eat">: These are great when you have slighly under ripe fruit. Ripe ones are too mushy!<br><br>
dredge avacado slices in flour, then beaten egg. Roll the slices in finely ground panko crumbs then fry in oil. Serve hot w/ spicy ketchup!
