Stuffed baked avocados (with rice, cream and pine nuts) (Middle Eastern)

We've had stuffed avocados before in some restaurants and we've come up with our version which we particularly enjoyed. But this is the first time we've ever heard of baked stuffed avocados and were intrigued. Apparently it's a Middle Eastern recipe and after we've made it we weren't disappointed. You should try it at least once. Enjoy :)
Adapted mostly from here

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 4 avocados, big
  • 3/4 cup of uncooked rice
  • 25 g pine nuts
  • 1/3 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • some sumac powder to taste

Preheat oven to 18 degrees C. Cut the avocados in half and start scooping most of their flesh out:

Leave a thin layer of flesh inside the avocado skins. Boil the rice according to package instructions. When it's boiled add the avocado flesh, pine nuts, salt and sour cream.

Mix well, then fill the avocado shells with this rice mixture. Put them in the preheated oven on a baking tray...

Bake for 5 minutes, then take out and dust with sumac for a nice color and flavor contrast. Dig in! :)
