Here is something super easy to whip up and very good for you. This is extremely versatile and it will last a few days in the fridge.
This avocado spread is delicious on Quesadillas, Tacos, Sandwiches, as a dip with fresh veggies, scrambled eggs– the list goes on and on. I think it elevates a very simple recipe (like tacos) and adds that little something to make it more special.
I just made this last night to put on top of a burger with a little cheddar cheese. It was so good I decided to post it today for you to try!
This is the recipe that I use, it is a little lighter in calories and very healthy. Instead of plain greek yogurt you can also try sour cream or ranch dressing-roll with the flavors you like.
- 2 tablespoons plain greek yogurt
- 1 small to medium Avocado
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- salt and pepper
- Juice from ½ lime
- Add all ingredients into a food processor and blend until creamy.
So it is that easy! I think this would be yummy on a BLT sandwich as an alternative to Mayo. I also like to sprinkle with a little paprika. I think smoked paprika might be really nice too! Since I am a vegetarian, I like to spread this on good whole wheat bread, add some carrot shavings and a slice of cheddar cheese. Delicious quick and healthy sandwich.
And I just made this for my own dinner last night and decided to photograph it at the last minute. So the pictures you see here are of spread that is a day old- this is much more forgiving then guac or plain avocado because it keeps that lovely green color.
As I type this, I am sitting and snacking away on this dip with a baggie of baby carrots. This is a great grab n go snack and would be perfect with tomatoes, carrots, jicama, peppers….
My favorite is to have this with a juicy burger (I eat veggie burgers and I can promise it is yummy with those) but this would be delicious on my other favorite Black Bean Mexican Wrap too!
