Dr. Nandi's Grilled Avocados



  • 2 Tbsp organic lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 4 avocados
  • 2 roma tomatoes halved and seeded
  • 1/2 red sweet pepper halved and seeded
  • 1/2 green sweet pepper halved and seeded
  • 1/2 yellow onion peeled and quartered
  • Crushed red pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup feta cheese crumbles


  • Heat grill or grill pan over medium-high heat.
  • In a small bowl combine lemon juice, 2 Tbsp olive oil, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp black pepper.
  • Slice avocados in half and remove pits, leaving skin intact.
  • Brush lemon juice mixture onto flesh and skin side of each avocado to prevent sticking on grill.
  • In a small bowl toss tomatoes, sweet peppers, and onions with 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, and remaining 2 Tbsp olive oil.
  • Grill avocados, flesh sides down, for 1 to 2 minutes or until dark grill marks form.
  • Flip and continue cooking for 1 to 2 minutes more. Place avocado halves on a serving plate.
  • Grill remaining vegetables for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until charred and tender.
  • Transfer vegetables to food processor. Add crushed red pepper. Pulse gently to form chunky relish.
  • Top each avocado half with vegetable relish; sprinkle with feta cheese. Drizzle with remaining lemon juice mixture.
