This recipe actually requires a moment of silence.
These fritters are that good. Ridiculously, insanely, deliciously, marvelously, wonderfully yummy
These were one of the first treats served Friday night at the Food Workshop hosted by the California Avocado Commission at EVO.
In case y’all aren’t aware, Friday night was the night of the power failure.
Also known as the night of no tech and a whole lot of amazing conversations, glow sticks, glow stick dancing and fun.
On Friday night, we who were lucky enough to RSVP quickly enough, braved the power outage and rode the Gondola up the mountain to The Lookout Cabin (some of us got stuck for a bit when the generators flickered out.. ADVENTURE… y’all!
Power failure? No big deal.. the ‘show’ must go on.
When those fritters were served with the Aji Amarillo Aioli.. there were sharp intakes of breath, silence and moans of enjoyment.
It would never have occurred to me to use quinoa to create anything like this, I’m so inspired after this workshop to play around more with avocados and different ingredients to create unusual and delicious, yet simple dishes.
These Crunchy Avocado Stuffed Quinoa Fritters were created for the California Avocado Commission by Top Chef Masters Chefs Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger
I posted an instagram pic of my plate after I’d eaten one fritter, with the title:
Holy sweet mother of tonguegasms @ca_avocados. Avocado quinoa fritters at #evoconf
The response was huge.
Thankfully, the California Avocado Commission is extremely generous and shared all the recipes from that night with us, and in turn I’m sharing them with y’all.
Food this good, should be shared.
