Help me disguise the taste and tingling sensation of... avocado.

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created January 14, 2012 at 5:56 AM

I hate avocado, and so does the boyfriend, so I'm not sure what he was thinking when he bought ME 3 avocados!
I'm going to make a face mask with it just to scare him into never buying it again! Just kidding... :P

I need recipe ideas that will minimize the taste avocado. Recipes that have such flavorful ingredients that I won't even notice the avocado.
One idea I had was to make a salad with bacon, chicken, and hard boiled eggs. So there will be 3 other ingredients making up the bulk of the meal.

What else could I make that will make it seem like the avocado "barely there"?

Considerations: I don't eat dairy or nuts. I don't like smoothies, guacamole, or avocado desserts. And I AM going to eat these avocados because they were pretty damn expensive.

+1 for catching the tingling and allergy relation. Becky yo - thats a great 'test'to see if you are allergic (even though it won't be pleasant), its better than going into Anaphylaxis Shock, if that were to actually being to happen, take antihistamines immediately (chew up benadryls)

My dad loves to tell a story about the old woman who came into the restaurant every Friday for a bowl of clam chowder. Then would upchuck it. Finally, somebody asked why she was doing that, if it clearly upset her stomach. She said, 'I'm not going to let my stomach tell ME what I can eat!' Me, I sometimes tingle. If I'm tingling, I don't eat the other half, and wait a week or two before more.

For example, with my salad idea, I'm hoping that the bacon and hard-boiled eggs will be so flavorful that I won't even notice the avocado.

Perhaps the "tingling sensation" you are referring to is anaphylaxis, indicating an allergy. If so, don't eat them!

Tingling sensation? Where do you get your avocados? Chernobyl?

Avocados are very tame/calm/non-tingly and yummy. Relax, cut it open, sprinkle on a little seasoning (I like cayenne) and then eat with a spoon. Yum!

I have these weird itching sensations whenever I eat poison oak. Please help me find a way to consume poison oak without my throat closing and without needing cortisone therapy for weeks at a time. Also, whenever I stay awake for 3 days straight, I start to feel, um, edgy. Help me find a way to go sleepless and still feel refreshed, rested, and not psychotic. Finally, for the past month I have been consuming 10,000 calories per day -- cookies, crackers, muffins chiefly -- and seem to be gaining weight, oddly enough, most.y blubber. Please help me get a body like Martin Berkhan while eating this way and not exercising.

I have other modest requests but let's handle these first.

I have a disturbing reaction to avocados and bananas - not exactly the same but enough to put me off eating them. I therefore follow this approach: Make whatever I want to eat, following the normal recipe. While my steak and veggies are cooking, I mash the avocado in a small bowl on its own. I then enjoy my normal meal and simply throw the avocado in...

...the waste disposal.

you are allergic to avocados. i wouldn't eat food I was allergic to if someone paid me! forget about the cost, avocados should not be considered food for you.

allow them to sit in your fruit bowl as a table decoration until they are very soft and brown, then throw them at your boyfriend.

Like the others mentioned, it does sound like an allergy. Although it should be more of an itchy feeling than a tingling feeling. Do you have any problems with latex? Allergens in avocados are similar to latex, so people can have problems with both.

You could make a large batch of salsa, and as the final ingredient, throw in one of the avocados, making sure it is mixed in (use a food processor, perhaps) really well. The other spices and peppers should mask the taste. The avocado will give the salsa a really nice texture (IMO), too.

Or, for fun, try to sell the avocados on Craig's List or Ebay :D

If the tingling is an allergic reaction then thinking up ways to disguise the avocado isn't such a great idea.

Yeah well good for you Luisa but you would soon be complaining if you had a severe allergic reaction and then found out that nobody had bothered to warn you that, the tingling was a warning.

Was that meant for me, Luisa? Not sure what the down vote was about. Oh well.

I'm an adult, I can decide on my own whether to eat them.

I'd add cayenne pepper, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, green peppers, cilantro, olive oil, and lemon juice. Kale if you like it. Chop up the avocado into small pieces, mix it up.

After reading all your smart-ass remarks and downvoted I have removed my thoughtful answer to you Luisa. Honestly you are not deserving of anyone's time and energy. This is not the first time people have given heartfelt advise and you have acted like a complete asshole insulting and downvoting people because you don't like their answer? I hope people wise up (s I finally have) and stop wasting their time and energy on you. You're an ungrateful brat at best. Probably far worse than that.

Spicy raw peppers also cause tingling and I am not allergic to them either.

Then I say eat the avocado with plenty of spicy pepper while standing on a window ledge 20 stories up in some random building then. You enjoy.

Make a super tasty guacamole, top it off with lots of lime juice so it doesn't turn brown, get some tortilla chips, and knock on the neighbor's door and offer it to them. :) Or if you have homeless folks in your city, find one and gift them some good healthy fats. They could use it.

If you really want to get your money's worth out of those avocados, leave them out until they become rotten and mushy, then throw them at your soon to be ex-boyfriend.
