Avocados should possibly become their own food group in our household for how often we buy them. We don’t just frequently buy them, we buy them in bulk to always have them on hand. I’ll thank Costco for that brilliant idea of bulked food items. Please and thank you, even for a family of two. 🙂 When you have four ripe avocados, what’s a girl to do other than make guacamole, that Eric so sweetly pointed out, is my own take on guacamole for how simple it is compared to a “standard” recipe. I grinned because that’s exactly what I love about it. The simplicity.
With just a touch of vegeanise to a bowl of avocados, it creates a guilt free side dish and dare I say condiment?!! to your next burger or taco! It’s light and flavorful with room to be mixed and matched with other foods but content on its own, all the same. When people ask what’s in it, I can’t help but blush because it sounds too simple. Two simple ingredients and one to sprinkle on top are all that is needed!
- 4 ripe avocados
- 1 Tbsp Vegenaise
- Salt and pepper to taste
What to do:
Cut and peel four avocados. Place into a large bowl. Use a fork to mash together until semi-smooth. Add one Tbsp of Vegenaise. Mix together with a fork or spoon. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Tips and tricks:
- Add lemon or lime juice to preserve the guacamole.
- Adding one or two of the avocado pits, makes it last longer. You can even leave them in when serving to make it last while it sits out!
- This basic recipe can have tomatoes, onions, garlic powder, or garlic salt added to your desired taste. It’s a great recipe on its own or mixed!
