How To Grill Avocados
There’s a reason why avocados are so popular: they’re delicious, they’re nutrient-rich, they go with everything, and they can be prepared in many different ways. At Team Harding, we love avocados and we love grilling, so we decided to combine the two by teaching our customers how to make delicious cooked avocados on the grill! Grilled avocados are delicious and there are so many ways to season them, they’ll soon become a staple in your home as a side at dinner or on toast at lunch!

Next, Serve Your Favourite Way!
The fun thing about making grilled avocados is the versatility. Avocados can be paired with several different kinds of food, or they can be enjoyed on their own. Here are a few of our favourite ways to serve avocado from the grill!
Simple Avocado Slices
Interested in making your grilled avocado into a delicious side for your steak or chicken? Simply scoop the avocado from its skin and place it on a cutting board. Slice the avocado into thin pieces and sprinkle with salt, parsley, and parmesan cheese. Serve warm and enjoy!
Once you’ve taken the avocados off of the grill, keep them in their skin and use the small divot from where the pit once was as a bowl for toppings like cheese, tomatoes, or even fresh slices of turkey breast. You can then serve the warm avocado with a spoon and eat it right out of the skin!
Grilled Avocado Toast
While cooking your avocados on the grill, add thick-cut slices of your favourite bread to the grill as well, take the bread off once toasted. Next, scoop the avocado from its skin and place it on the toast. With a fork, mash the grilled avocado evenly across the toast and garnish with salt, red onion, cilantro, and sriracha.
