Here’s recipe #2 for Asparagus Month here at The Daily Morsel.

This delicious spring dish is a quick and easy vegetarian one-pot meal.  It can be served hot, cold or at room temperature, making it a great make ahead salad.  Or, serve it as a side dish to Roast Chicken or Lemon Buttered Salmon.  In which case you’ll have a two-pot meal.

Avocado Honey Pudding Pops

I first made avocado ice cream back in 2010, when I had an abundance of avocadoes going ripe very quickly.  What better way to stop the ripening process then freeze them in the form of ice cream?  I used Alton Brown’s Avocado Ice Cream recipe, and it was delicious.  It reminded me a lot of green tea ice cream.  It is a bit on the grassy side, so we topped the ice cream with drizzles of honey, and it was a perfect match.

Here is an adaptation of avocado ice cream, but in the form of an ice pop.  I used honey as a sweetener, since it helps turn the savory avocado into a delicious dessert.

Seeded Nut Loaf (or Muffins)

These little loaves are a delicious and healthy alternative to bread.  I try not to call this bread, since there is really no flour or rising agent, so I decided to call it Seeded Nut Loaf, because really that’s what it is.  It’s great for breakfast or a snack.  I love avocado spread on a slice.  Hummus and almond butter are also delicious.  You can easily use this when making open face sandwiches and toast.
