So easy to make, you'll never need to buy store-bought again. I was inspired by a recipe found in this book, during a six-month stint of following a vegan diet. Here is my recipe with a few of my own modifications from the original:


3 ripe, large avocados

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1 teaspoon granulated onion

½ teaspoon granulated garlic

½ teaspoon sea salt

¼ teaspoon ground cumin

3 dashes Tabasco (more, if you like it spicy)

Peel and pit the avocados and place them in a medium bowl.

Use a pastry cutter, or a fork, to mash them to your desired level of texture.

Add remaining ingredients and stir thoroughly with a spoon until seasonings have been evenly distributed.
