 While there may be foods that you haven Why You Need to Start Combining Avocados and Peaches

Let’s be honest for a hot second: While there may be foods that you haven’t combined with avocado yet, that doesn’t mean there are combos you’re completely unwilling to try. Because, as long as avocado is involved, it’s likely going to taste good. (Proof: These avocado toast recipes and this avocado ice cream.)

So when the idea of mixing peach and avocado was brought up, we were intrigued. It may not sound like a natural combination, but trust—these two healthy ingredients truly shine together. Plus, you’re getting some serious health benefits, like heart-healthy fat from the avocado and loads of vitamins, including K, C, and E, from the peach.

The best way to enjoy? In porridge, AKA oatmeal. This recipe is hearty and luscious, meaning you’ll be satisfied right after – and all the way through until lunch.

Avocado and Peach Porridge
Makes: 2 servings

Ingredients:

1 ripe peach
1 ¼ cups gluten-free porridge oats
3 tbsp desiccated coconut
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 cups water
1/2 an avocado, finely sliced

Instructions:

1. Chop the peach in half and remove the pit. Chop 3/4 of the flesh into cubes and place into a pan, saving the remaining 1/4 for the topping.

2. Add the gluten-free oats, desiccated coconut, chia seeds and half of the water to the pan and bring to a gentle simmer on a medium heat. The peach should start to break down. When the mixture starts to thicken, add the remaining water and continue to cook until the porridge is cooked.

3. While the porridge cooks, chop the avocado in half, remove the pit and peel. Finely chop one half into thin half moon shapes and set aside. Chop the remainder of the peach into thin slices.

4. Divide the porridge into two bowls and top with the remaining peach and avocado. Sprinkle over some crunchy toppings of your choice (almonds, goji berries, etc) and add a little coconut or almond milk if desired. The porridge should have been naturally sweetened by the peach but if you need a bit more of a sweet fix, a drizzle of agave or date syrup will do the trick.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
