Have you ever had a recipe at a restaurant and thought it was so simple that you wanted to try it at home?? Today’s recipe happens to be one of those. Before we left Texas, we went on one last group date with some of our friends and visited an Italian restaurant called Grazia. We had been there a few times before but it was the first time I had noticed an appetizer for Caprese Stuffed Avocados. I’ve been a long-time fan of the tomato, basil, mozzarella combo and had always loved avocados, so I decided to give it a try. It was amazing and was a great appetizer for our pasta dish. It looked so simple, I wanted to replicate it at home, and I’m glad I tried because it ended up tasting just like it. You can add as much of the caprese ingredients as you like, but the overall gist is just carving out a little more space in your avocado to add some of the other ingredients. This, of course, was very simple and very quick to do making it even more appealing. It tastes delicious, and I’m glad I found another side to serve with our meals. It looks a little fancy too but takes hardly any effort which are always crowd pleasers.
For all you caprese lovers out there, I think you will definitely enjoy this simple and tasty recipe. I’m thinking I may add some chicken next time and making it a meal. 😉
Here is the printable recipe:
