Kaffir Lime Avocado Pureefrom Ming Tsai
Ming says: Avocados are like nature's butter, but unlike real butter they're so good for you. Not only great raw, but great cooked, avocados are a great way to add healthy, tasty, and natural fat to a dish. This Kaffir Lime Avocado Purée can be used both ways.
Makes about 3 cups
4 fresh kaffir lime leaves
4 ripe avocados
2 shallots, roughly chopped
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Roll kaffir leaves and slice super thin, then mince. In a food processor fitted with a sharp blade, combine avocado, lime leaves, shallots and lime juice, and blend at high speed until smooth. Season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste and add cilantro. Check again for flavor. Store in an air-tight jar in the refrigerator.
