Who doesn’t love avocados? You’ve seen options for adding guacamole to your order for an additional charge, and isn’t it worth every cent? We’d say so. Avocados have amazing health benefits and should be included in your diet if they are not already high on your priority list when choosing a dish. Not only are they full of beneficial vitamins and minerals, but also highly versatile in the foods they pair well with.
The flavor of avocados are more neutral and thus complementary with foods rather than being too overpowering or bland. The taste and smell of freshly sliced avocados are neither too strong or weak in both taste and smell.
Avocado Flavor Profile
Before we dive into the best foods to pair avocados with, it is important to look at their flavor profile. Avocados have a nutty, buttery, and green earthy taste. Its texture is smooth and creamy making it easy to scoop out, slice, or mash-up with other ingredients. For example, guacamole is a classic example of its pairing well with onion, jalapeno, tomatoes, garlic, and lime.
