Fried Avocado Tacos

I asked everyone what they wanted to make vegan. Well, here's one that I thought was perfect for a Friday night! A bottle of wine, chips and salsa and fried avocado tacos with mango purée and tomato foam. Too good for words!

Fried Avocado

Panko bread crumbs
2 large, ripe avocados
Salt and pepper, to taste

In a small bowl, mix Panko with salt and pepper. Place about 2 T of oil in a pan and turn to medium heat. Cut the avocado in half and take out the pit. Cut again into 4's. Peel off skin like you would a cut orange. Place the avocado into the breading and lightly push panko into avocado so it sticks. Put coated avocado into the pan and fry until golden brown on each side.

Mango Purée

1 large, ripe mango
1 inch, fresh ginger 
1 T garlic powder

Place all ingredients into a blender and purée!

Tomato Foam

2 large tomatoes
1/2 red onions, diced
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 T oil
1 T thyme

Place all ingredients into mixer and blend. When foam starts to form, stop mixing. Not everything will be blended. It's better that way.

And there you have it! I added black beans and pea shoots to my taco along with a couple pieces of fried onion with the extra panko. It tasted amazing! I hope y'all enjoy as much as I did.
