Avocado Mousse

This recipe is wonderfully versatile. It's great for summer Lunches and Picnics, as you can make a big bowl and let everyone dig in. Or it can make a really pretty starter (perfect for before your turkey this Christmas), I made little quenelles and served it with fresh crab, mayonnaise and brioche. The other way I love to use this recipe is as a Canapé. I did a little plate of the options I like to make. The smoked salmon parcels tied with chives are my favourite!The eggs make the mix lighter if you want a "proper" mousse texture, however without the eggs you still get a lovely light pate texture.  In the images I haven't used eggs but I have tried it and it's lovely. You can see the mousse texture here on the original recipe!
