So, how do I come up with new recipes?

One of the most common questions readers ask is where I get inspiration for new recipes.

You might think I should be running out of ideas after 7 years of blogging… but I’m not even close! I am constantly dreaming up new ideas—in fact, it can be annoying at times because inspiration often strikes when I’m eating, exercising, or even when I’m trying to sleep.

There are little scraps of paper all over my apartment with recipes ideas.

And when paper is not available, I’ve been known to write on cereal boxes, receipts, or even paper towels.

Avocado Creme Brulee

 

What inspired me to create avocado crème brûlée?

Two things: and both because I wanted to do something different.

The first was that I’d purchased an avocado and was trying to brainstorm ways to use it up that were not guacamole, avocado chocolate pudding, or any other such recipe one immediately thinks of when one thinks of avocado.

The other was that, with St. Patrick’s Day coming up, I wanted to make a festive dessert that was not key lime pie, Guinness brownies, or mint chocolate anything.

On the imagined sheet of paper in my mind, I drew a line down the middle.

On the left, I wrote “avocado.”

And on the right, I mentally wrote down every single dessert I could think of in the span of about a minute.

The moment “crème brûlée” went down on that imaginary sheet of paper, I knew it was the one I had to try.

Avocado Crème Brûlée

(Serves 2-3)

  • packed 1/2 cup mashed ripe avocado (120g)
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice or canned coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/16 tsp salt
  • pinch uncut stevia OR 3 tbsp sugar (You can also use a liquid sweetener –just scale the milk back by 3 tbsp)
  • 2-3 tsp brown sugar or sucanat (omit for a sugar-free version that just won’t have the classic top)
  • blow torch OR oven broiler

Puree the first 5 ingredients until completely smooth.  Pour into oven-safe ramekins or small dishes and refrigerate until thick like mousse—about 5 hours or overnight. (These can easily be eaten as mousse, sans the crème brûlée topping, if desired.) Before serving, sprinkle about a tsp of brown sugar evenly on top of each dish, then either set as close to your oven’s broiler as possible and broil OR use a blow torch to burn the sugar. If broiling, it will only take 5-10 minutes, so watch carefully and rotate frequently.

    I made this, but…
    I think the avocado flavor was way too strong.
    However, it was really really creamy. 🙂

  2. Erin says

    This was something I tried out of curiosity more than anything. I love avocados, and I love creme brulee. I was pretty skeptical at first, but this was surprisingly tasty! Will definitely be making again!
