Chunky Raw Vegan Guacamole is a super-simple recipe to make for one! It's so simple in fact, you may already have the ingredients in your fridge and cupboard.
What I like about this recipe is that you can keep it raw vegan or you can add tortillas for cheat day. You can also double up ingredients if you ever want to use it for Mexican Dinner night with the family!
I don't know about you, but there are some days where I just don't feel like putting a lot of effort into my meals. That's where the idea for chunky raw vegan guacamole came about. I was looking to throw together a few key ingredients to make a mean on-the-go!
- 1 whole Avocado Make sure that it is ripened or soft
- 1/2 half Lemon Squeeze into guacamole for freshness and to prevent browning
- 2 tbsp Cilantro Cut up for freshness
- 2 tbsp Purple Onion Diced
- 1 dash Sea Salt
- 1 dash Black Pepper
- 1 dash Cayenne Pepper
- 1 dash Crushed Red Pepper
Remove avocado from its outer layer and take out the seed. You can save the seed if you like to grow more avocados with toothpicks 🙂
Now, take a fork and mash avocado as much as you can, making it look chunky. Do this until it looks pretty well mashed down.
Next, cut up cilantro on a cutting board, enough to fill up about two tablespoons. You'll want to cut cilantro from the ends. Add to avocado mix and mash well.
Dice purple onions until you have at least two tablespoons worth, then add to the guacamole mix. Mash well. It should be a very thick consistency at this point.
Now, it's time to add the spices. Yum! This part really kicks the recipe into high-gear.
You'll want to add a dash of sea salt, a dash of black pepper, a dash of cayenne pepper, and a dash of crushed red pepper (go lightly, it's spicy hot!)
For freshness, add a squeeze of lemon and mash everything really well together to blend flavors.
To blend flavors further, you can even refrigerate for a half hour, but it's not necessary. If you are hungry, go for it!
Use as a dip or if it's a cheat day, add in some gluten-free tortillas. Enjoy! Serves 1.
If you can't eat the guacamole in one day, you can always keep it fresh by squeezing the other half of the lemon in to keep it from browning.
