    Shuzbud's Note:

    This is a lovely, creamy sauce and the sundried tomatoes break up the avocado flavour nicely. This recipe responds well to adjusting the proportions to taste. The weight for the sundried tomatoes is their dehydrated weight- I use about half a pack. If using smaller avocados, I find 4 works best to make the sauce thick enough. To make this dish vegetarian, use a vegetable stock cube instead of chicken.

      Thanks for this recipe! I was looking to use up an avocado without just making guacamole, and this was a great change of pace. I made it with things I already had in the house, so I changed a bit, but it still turned out really good. I only used 1 large avocado (for feeding 2 people) and adjusted butter and cream (subbed 2% milk) accordingly. I used roasted red peppers instead of sun-dried tomatoes. I didn't have a stock cube so I just left it out. Added a little garlic salt, pepper, and parmesan right at the end. Easy and different- definitely will make it again.
