Recipe type: spread

Serves: 2-4 people


2 avocados, mashed

1 tbsp lemon juice (or lime if you don’t have any lemons)

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

¼ tsp garlic powder

¼-1/2 tsp onion powder (start with ¼ tsp and add more to taste)

⅛ tsp chili powder (or more to taste)

¼ tsp sea salt (or more to taste)

freshly ground pepper to taste

chopped fresh herbs such as parsley, cilantro, or chives (optional)


Mash the avocados, place them in a small bowl along with the rest of the ingredients. Mix well, taste, and add more seasoning if desired.

Alternatively, you can throw everything into a food processor and process until smooth and creamy. (for the first option is much more convenient, unless you need to mash 20 avocados, because who has time to clean a food processor, right?)

That’s it! It’s that simple.

The spread should last in the fridge for 2-3 days, though the avocados already start to brown on the second day so it’s best to always make this fresh.
