I Don’t like avocados, (gasp!) but I love guacamole- especially my smooth, speedy guacamole. Is that weird?
The problem lies in the texture.
Sliced or chunked avocado has a mouthfeel a little too much like what I imagine clay would feel like if I were to sample a bit. I won’t eat it in a salad and I pick it out of most dishes, but I could eat guacamole every day.
The difference? I puree it. Texture issue solved.
I am also a guacamole purist. Nothing ruins a good guacamole like adding chopped tomato, onion, or (heaven forbid!) cilantro. I HATE cilantro. I am one of those for whom it tastes like soap. I read this really interesting article about it that is not only informative but also quite vindicating. Ha! I hope the cilantro trend ends soon because a few of our favorite restaurants add it to everything.
All I add to my avocados is lime, salt, and garlic powder. Sometimes I add crushed black pepper (leave this out to keep it AIP compliant).
There are countless applications for this smooth guacamole, but a couple of my favorites are topping tacos and burgers and as a dip for carrots. Yum!
You will want to keep a few avocados and limes on hand because you never know when a guacamole craving might hit. This is a dip you can feel good about because each serving offers up a nice dose of healthy fat.
I hope you will enjoy it as much as we do! Let me know.
