Guacamole and chips has to be one of the best combos ever. I even like guacamole and carrots. Guacamole and anything, really.
But here’s the catch: when I’m at home it can’t have onion. My sister HATES them. She avoids them like the plague! That’s why I created this onion-free recipe for all you onion-haters out there. It gets bonus points for being clean eating friendly with no added oils and low sodium. It’s also really mild in the heat department, making it perfect for family get-togethers with young ones that don’t do well with spiciness!
Here’s my clean eating guacamole recipe:
- 3 avocados
- 10 plum tomatoes
- 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
- 1/8 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- Juice of 1/3 of a lime or lemon
- 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha
- Dice the tomatoes to your desired size, then mash all ingredients together with a fork.
- If you want it to be spicier, add more Sriracha to taste. You could also substitute your favorite hot sauce for the Sriracha if you'd prefer.
Turmeric has been talked about a lot lately because of it’s health-benefitting properties. Read about it’s anti-inflammatory and other benefits at The World’s Healthiest Foods.
Pro Tip: Store the guacamole in the fridge covered with plastic wrap with the avocado pits in the dip (shown in the picture below). This helps to prevent browning.
This clean eating guacamole is also great on sandwiches, in wraps, served with brown rice and sautéed veggies, or on top of a salad (especially if the salad has fresh corn in it).
