Creamy Avocado Rice or Butter Fruit Rice Recipe
Creamy Avocado Rice or Butter Fruit Rice
A Nutrition-rich Meal In 25 Minutes!
I made avocado/butter fruit rice today for lunch. It was so delicious and creamy.
Avocados are a naturally nutrient-dense food that contain nearly 20 vitamins and minerals. They provide a substantial amount of monounsaturated fatty acids. They are a good source of energy that have a low sugar content.
I used cucumber, lemon, green chilies, and some seasonings, along with grated avocados, in this recipe. If you look into the other ingredients, all of them are known for their nutrients.
It took me about 25 minutes to make this rice dish for four people.
Now, let me show you how to make this awesome avocado rice.
- 1 heaped cup avocado(butter fruit), seed removed, peeled, grated
