Healthy guacamole recipe
This recipe is fresh, delicious, and the best guacamole I’ve ever tasted.
I used shallot and garlic, but not a lot so that the recipe has that bite of fresh garlic and onion without being overpowering.
Fresh lime juice and fresh cilantro are also key flavors for getting the taste just right.
Many guacamole recipes that I’ve tasted are either too plain, or they have too much garlic and onion.
This recipe uses just enough to add that kick of flavor without being too much to handle.
I also like to add cherry tomatoes instead of Roma tomatoes, as they add a nice texture to the guacamole.
This vegan guacamole recipe is perfect for serving with enchilada tofu burrito bowls.
We love this as a snack for game day, or as a side dish with dinner!
When I make this guacamole with vegetarian burrito bowls and it seriously tasted like I had brought Chipotle to my kitchen!
This recipe is small batch, meaning that it’s not meant to serve a crowd. Since I’m often just cooking for me and the hubs, this is perfect for us without having too much left over.
If you’re making this guacamole for a party, just double or triple the recipe and you’ll be good to go!
If you love guacamole, you’ll love this recipe!
