The Health and Wellness Center dietician provides a series of seasonal recipes for each month. October's recipes are based on avocado.


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 (4-pound) trimmed beef tenderloin
4 cloves of garlic
3/4 (8-ounce) jar Dijon mustard
1 ripe avocado, peeled and cubed
1/4 cup steak seasoning

How to make it

1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a roasting pan with a sheet of aluminum foil.
2. Preheat a large skillet over high heat. Pour in the oil and heat until smoking. Sear the tenderloin roast in the hot oil until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove and place in roasting pan when done. While the roast is searing, place garlic, mustard, avocado, and steak seasoning into blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Coat the seared roast with the avocado mixture.
3. Roast in preheated oven until the tenderloin has reached your desired degree of doneness, about 40 minutes for medium.
