Making these breaded bites is a cinch. First, you’ll need to gather up your ingredients. For this recipe, you’ll need four to six avocados, one cup of all-purpose flour, one teaspoon of salt, one teaspoon of garlic powder, one teaspoon of smoked paprika, one cup of plant-based milk, and two cups of panko breadcrumbs. This should be enough for four servings.
To begin, preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, slice each avocado in half and scoop out the pit. Slice each half of the avocado into four equal-sized slices.
In a shallow bowl, mix together the flour, salt, garlic powder, and smoked paprika. In another bowl, pour the plant-based milk. In a third bowl, combine the breadcrumbs.
Dip each avocado slice in the plant-based milk, then dredge it in the flour mixture. Shake off the excess flour and dip it into the milk again. Finally, dredge the avocado slices in the breadcrumbs. Place them on a greased baking sheet.
Bake the avocado slices for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden-brown and crispy. Let them cool for a few minutes before serving with your favourite dip or sauce.
