Equipment

  • Gas grill

Ingredients

  • 3 Large Fresh Avocados
  • 1 Garlic clove
  • 2 tsp Olive oil
  • 2 tsp Fresh lemon juice
  • Salt

For the sauce:

  • 1/4 Cup Feta cheese, crumbled (37g)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Tahini
  • 4 tsp Fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 - 1 Tbsp Reduced-sodium chicken broth (depending how thick you like your sauce)
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

  • Preheat your grill to medium high heat.
  • Cut the avocados in half and remove the seeds. Peel the garlic clove and cut the top off. Rub the cut part of the garlic all over the cut side of the avocado.
  • Mix the olive oil and lemon juice in a small bowl and brush over the avocados. Sprinkle with salt.
  • Place cut side down on the grill and cook until nice grill marks form, about 5-6 minutes.
  • Place the feta into a small microwave-safe bowl and microwave until it begins to warm and soften, about 10-15 seconds. Then, use a small food processor (mine is 3 cups) and blend all the sauce ingredients together. You'll need to stop and scrape down the sides and then start blending again to make sure everything gets smooth and creamy. Season to taste with salt.
  • Divide the sauce between the avocados, squeeze with fresh lemon juice (optional) and scoop right out of the shell to DEVOUR!
