IT’S ABOUT DARN TIME! Prepare to have your avocado world rocked by this Asian Guacamole. Whenever we make something like our favorite Asian Meatballs with Cauliflower Fried Rice, I always want to add avocado to it. Both because I love my healthy fats and because we always have an avocado on hand that is one day away from going bad. I usually just mash up the avo with coconut aminos, garlic powder, ground ginger and salt, and slap it on top, but today I wanted to elaborate on that general idea. To amp it up even more I added chopped water chestnuts & green onions, and topped it with toasted sesame seeds and some seaweed!
Now this goes great with those Paleo Sesame Crackers I made earlier this week or even chopped bell peppers, but I think putting it on my Asian Stir-Fry Frittata might be life changing. I will report back! When I was shopping at Ralphs for this recipe , every avocado was perfectly ripe. It was almost scary because I wanted to pick the best one but they were all SO GOOD. Then I went cray cray and bought 5. I used 2 for this recipe and the other perfectly ripe ones were donzo the next day. Nothing makes me more sad than throwing out avocados. 🙁 Okay well that’s a bit dramatic I guess.
All you need to do now it go get some avocados and make this ish HAPPEN!
When I dip you dip we dip!
- 2 ripe avocado

- Peel and pit and chop avocados. Add them to a bowl with lime juice, coconut aminos, ginger and garlic powder and mash. Stir in green onion and water chestnuts. Scoop into serving dish and top with more green onions, sesame seeds and seaweed!
YES! This looks so good Kelsey. And I can’t believe I’ve never seen this before, but you are an innovator with Sweet Potato toast being the one that comes to mind. I would love to try this next time we have avocados. I love anything Asian themed.
Thanks Emily!! We cook asian themed all the time and love guacamole so it was bound to happen eventually!! I hope you try it and love it!! 🙂
Ah yes! People always load their burrito/mexican bowls with guac, well now we can load out SUSHI bowls with it too! <3
YUP YUP!! The best!! 🙂
I’m forever juggling avocados and bananas that are a day away from going bad! In fact I have three avocados right now so that is perfect. Love your Asian take on guac.
Thanks Nancy!! Me too!! I have also seen people freeze avocados (already pitted) and put them in smoothies! Gotta try that too 🙂
