Avocado-Smoothie-new

The first time I got offered an Avocado Smoothie was when I traveled to Indonesia for work a few years ago. I just thought…ewww…are you kidding me? Avocado? Smoothie?

Making this dish always evokes a lot of childhood memories. As a child, I used to spend most of my summer vacation in Thailand. Satay skewers was one of my favorite dishes then, right after spring rolls! In Thailand, you can buy them with many street vendors that can be found along the way or…

I came up with this idea, because I was thinking of a side for the stuffed chicken I was making the other night. I would usually make a risotto, so I was thinking of how to make it make it more Superfood-style. I felt that Quinoa would sort of have a similar shape and mouthfeel…
