Avocado Lettuce Cups are quaint yet surprisingly filling. Of course avocado is good for you and with lettuce as the vessel, it's a healthy salad in a couple of mouth fulls.

Getting started
2

First, fill a small saucepan with water up to three quarters and add a good pinch of salt. This will prevent the eggs from cracking. Bring to a boil.

3

Using a spoon or hand, dip each egg in and out of the boiling water (be careful not to get burnt!) . This will prevent the egg from cracking as the temperature change won't be so dramatic.

4

Cut the avocado in half and scoop the meat out. Using a fork, mash it in a bowl.

5

When the eggs are done, let them cool down by adding some cold water and then peel the shell off.

6

Dice the eggs and add them to the bowl with the avocado. Squeeze in the lemon.

7

Season with salt and pepper to taste and add mayonnaise.

8

Sprinkle with freshly chopped chives and spring onion.

9

Wash and drain the lettuce well on a paper tissue or in a lettuce strainer.

10

Separate the leaves and scoop the mixture into each leaf. Enjoy!

To get the eggs hard-boiled, you need round 10 minutes. This timing works for large eggs!

I sometimes also add a teaspoon of curry OR mustard powder to the mixture for a spicy twist
