Avocado doesn't have to be boring. There is more to the vegan-favorite food than the usual guacamole or avocado toast.

If you're in need of some avo inspiration, there's an Instagram account that offers just that.

Vegan food photographer Anna Pelzer, who is based in North Vancouver, British Columbia, has 'a passion for creating colorful vegan dishes', using 'food to communicate a more compassionate and healthy lifestyle'.

Pelzer focuses on avocados as the star of the show, creating dishes that are both mouthwatering and mesmerizing.

Here are our top 10 best avocado dishes from her feed that you really need to try out...

1. Cashew Beet Spread & Avo Toast

The possibilities with avocado are truly endless.

This variation uses a cashew beet and balsamic spread - topped with avocado curls cut with a mandoline.

2. Avocado Tartare
