"Deviled" Avocadoes

 Remember deviled eggs? This raw/vegan arrangement is a fun way to spice up your dinner or makes a great appetizer for a dinner party.
 For years I have loved the taste of Avocado mashed with a little salt and pepper, as it resembles scrambled eggs. (Try it on whole grain toast if your vegan)
 Last night I thought it would be fun to add some spice.

1. Take 3 perfectly ripe Avocados and split them legnth wise,
2. Take out the pit- using a chopping motion, aim the knife downward on the pit and hit the pit with the knife, when it sets in, pull out the pit with the knife.
3. Cut them again width wise.
4. Arrange them on  plate and sprinkle with sea salt, fresh ground pepper and just a light sprinkle of paprika.

Serves 8.
