Avocado coated julienne stir fry

I came up with this recipe while I was on GM diet day 3. On 3rd day you are allowed to eat only fruits and vegetables. GM diet is same as cabbage soup diet. Fast way to lose weight. It did work for me. I like to get on low cal diet specially after I have been hogging a lot :).

I was planning to cook stir fry and just eat that. I came up with this recipe as I had an avocado which I had to finish on fruit and veg day as next day was banana and milk day. Try this recipe. You will love it.

2cups of following vegetables of your choice
Mushroom, broccoli, green beans, spring onions, carrot, courgette, asparagus, colored peppers (red, yellow or green), baby corn
Extra virgin olive oil: 1/2 table spoon

Avocado: 1 ripe
Tomato: 1 medium
Garlic clove: 1
Parsley: handful
Sea salt
Lime juice: 2 table spoon

Wash and cut the vegetables in julienne cut and keep them separate.

Cut avocado in half.
Remove the seed. Take the skin off.
In blender add avocado, washed and rough chopped tomato, garlic clove, parsley, lime juice, sea salt.
Blend it into smooth paste.
Heat the wok and add extra virgin olive oil. Stir fry vegetables for 3-4 minutes on high flame. When you cook vegetables on high flame for short time, it will retain its nutrients.
When vegetables are cooked, add the avocado paste
and stir well.
You can add pasta to this stir fry or stir fry can be eaten own its own. Avocado is source of "good fat" hence this dish will make your tummy full.
