Recipes for Chanukah: Crispy avocado wedges

 Chanukah isn’t only about latkes and donuts. Let Denise Phillips show you how to be a little bit more adventurous in the festive kitchen

Avocados are one of my favourite super foods as they are so versatile, but have you ever made them into chips?

High in fibre, protein and vitamins, these baked vegan wedges are a must any time.

Use as canapés, a quick snack, lunch box treats, a side dish or add to tacos, tortillas or with a burger.

NB: For best results, choose avocados that are firm but ripe.

Preparation Time: 20 mins. Cooking Time: 10-12 mins     


  • ½ teaspoon chilli flakes
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 30g chickpea flour
  • 50ml coconut or almond milk
  • 2 large or 4 small avocados, peeled and cut into thick slices
  • 75g breadcrumbs

Dipping Sauce:

  • 150ml Greek yoghurt or thick non dairy
  • yoghurt/coconut yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • Zest of half a lime
  • 1 teaspoon chilli sauce
  • Pinch salt

Garnish: Lime wedges and sprigs of coriander


  1. Preheat oven to 220ºC and line a baking tray with baking parchment.
  2. Combine the chilli flakes, salt, and flour in a shallow dish.
  3. Add the milk to a separate shallow dish.
  4. Coat each avocado slice in flour, then dip in the milk.
  5. Sprinkle breadcrumbs over each slice, pressing down lightly until the crumbs stick.
  6. Place on the prepared baking try and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden. Store leftovers in the fridge for two to three days.
  7. To make the dressing, combine all the ingredients together.
  8. Serve with lime wedges, sprigs of coriander and dipping sauce.

Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.


There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.


In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.


Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish Newsalso produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.
