Baked Avocado

Recipe from Jason Mraz, singer, songwriter, avocado farmer


  • 1 unripe avocado
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt


Chef’s note: For this dish you can only use an unripe avocado. Make sure it is rock hard and still has a stem at the top. It must stay naturally sealed in order to bake properly.

Bake avocado for 20 minutes at 500ºF on baking sheet. Skin will peel away, and fruit will be the texture of a baked potato.

Pour on your favorite local olive oil and a few pinches of sea salt.
