Easy Stuffed Avocado Boats

Looking for the perfect summer appetizer to cool down? The hunt is over! This low-calorie vegan avocado recipe will wow your tastebuds and keep you super satiated. Between the healthy fat from the avocado and the low glycemic quinoa and black beans, this is a hearty vegan meal that will impress even your meat-loving friends. Stuffed avocado boats for the win!

As the new adage goes, "An avocado a day, keeps the doctor away." Right?


  • 3 avocados
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa 
  • 1 cup black beans
  • 1 cup onion
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 3 red peppers
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil or avocado oil
  • Sea salt


  1. Prepare all your veggies! Chop your onion, peppers, and tomatoes. Shuck the corn and remove from the cob. Add all of your veggies, black beans, and quinoa to a parchment lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive or avocado oil.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 500 degrees and roast veggies until nice & toasty! I like to turn veggies (very carefully!) once or twice to ensure they're light brown on both sides. 
  3. While your veggies are toasting up, fire up your grill.
  4. Peel your avocados, drizzle with oil, and place them flesh side down on the grill until charred. 
  5. Remove your veggies from the oven, stuff the avocados with your veggie filling, and enjoy! 
  6. Optional: top with cilantro and/or squeeze with lime.
