AVOCADOS! Love love love. As you can see, the family is still pretty crazy over Avocados.
One day over dinner, me and my Dad were eating our usual mashed avocado with gula melaka syrup and then out came a terrific idea. Dad suggested that I should make some Avocado tarts! What a brilliant idea because they turned out fantastic!
With all the cheese tart craze in Singapore, let me be a little thick skin and say that I think this Avocado tart taste way better wahhhaaa.. PLUS it’s healthy and contains one of the superfood.
