Easy Guacamole Recipe

Happy Monday!  Time for the vegetarian recipe of the week in honor of Meatless Monday!

Avocados are a great meat substitute due to their high protein content.  While the avocado does have a high fat content, the fat is unsaturated.  And we need healthy fats in our diet.

Avocados are also packed with vitamins A, C, and E and loaded with dietary fiber.  In fact, they have one of the highest fiber contents of any fruit or vegetable.

I love eating Fresh Guacamole when I’m out to dinner at a Mexican restaurant.

And now, thanks to this super easy recipe from Real Simple magazine, I LOVE making it myself at home.  Try this recipe from for an easy & tasty guacamole.

Ingredients

Directions
  1. In a large bowl, combine the onion, jalapeño, cilantro, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Using the back of a fork, mash the vegetables until they begin to release their juices.
  2. Add the avocados and lime juice and stir to combine.
    This recipe makes 2 cups.

 

Quick Tip: Got leftover cilantro? It’s a great, versatile herb you can add to tons of recipes. Snip the ends and store cilantro in a jar or glass of water. Loosely place a plastic bag over the glass (like a bag you get in the produce section of the grocery store) & store in the fridge for up to two weeks!
