Fennel Stuffed Avocado with Mung Bean Sprouts
These stuffed avocados are crunchy, creamy, zesty, nutty and nutritious. Mung bean sprouts and fennel are the base of the stuffing with chia seeds to soak up the dressing. I really enjoy using pulse sprouts. They are great on so many levels. Textural and tasty plus they are full of essential vitamins.
