Avocado with Kikkoman, sushi ginger, and wasabi. Easy.

Please tell me you made wasabi icing. (Chu-hi likes the cut of your jib.)

I took this picture yesterday in Nairobi. The black boxes are mangoes, and the plain boxes are avocados. NOM.

Admittedly, not yet... but that's mostly because I haven't yet figured out what to pair it with. “Cake” — in the traditional Euro-American sense — seems like it could make for an unfortunate combination.

For a while I was thinking of either the double chocolate chili cookies, or the spicy chipotle shortbread from Mr. Pinks, but the more I think about it, the less convinced I am that “wasabi spicy” and “chili pepper spicy” would actually be the greatest pairing after all.

However! While I've yet to actually try one, I've seen a number of different recipes for chocolate couscous cake and I can see that pairing working.

After all, if a chocolate cake with an avocado frosting, then why not wasabi?

(Or, hm... maybe an avocado couscous chocolate cake with wasabi frosting...? Naw, that's just getting silly.)

...or is it????

I support silliness. But what about an ordinary angel cake with vanilla wasabi frosting?

I made a salad you would die for the other day: tofu, avocado, seaweed salad, arugula, cucumber, radish, in an orange serrano soy dressing. We can make it when I visit!
