I'm not a huge avocado lover so I mashed up half an avocado, added the full amount of sauce (I did use low sodium but added a pinch of salt to compensate), copied Tunisianswife & hit it w/ a bit of lime zest & ate it w/ cold boiled chicken in a lettuce wrap. I loved the flavor of the ginger w/ the avocado. It was a very nice lunch...thanks Josie!

This was ok. I can see where some may really enjoy the way the asian flavors compliment the buttery avocado. It was different and good, but not having too much experience with fresh ginger, I found it to be a little overwhelming. The salt in the soy was strong too...I added a little olive oil to cut the flavor down. Will probably make again, for a change from the norm...but not my fave.

A fast, simple way to enjoy an avocado with little preparation and only a few ingredients. It is a definite keeper. I used the low sodium soy sauce and loved it. Thanks Josie!

Very good as is, even better with a 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil. Thanks for the recipe!

I did this just a little different. I scooped out all of the inside that I could, sort of like a twice baked potato. Then I mixed the garlic, ginger, soy sauce and the avocado together and placed it back into the avocado skin. We enjoyed it and so simple to make.

I Liked this best when mashed together like guacamole; served on a bed of spinach and tomatoes, it was delicious! Low sodium soy sauce worked perfectly in this unusual dish.

This is excellent. I probably doubled the amount of ginger. If you let the ginger & soy sauce sit together a bit, the flavors really pop.

We really enjoyed this, a delicious change to the usual boring, salted avocado. I increased the amount of soy sauce for extra flavour, and left out the ginger as a personal preference. Ate most of this as is, the rest I chopped up and invented a sort of salad with cold ramen noodles and vegetables. Delicious!
