Vegan Guacamole is a plant-based twist on the classic Mexican dip, guacamole. Guacamole itself has a rich history rooted in Mexican cuisine.

  • The word “guacamole” is derived from the Nahuatl word “āhuacamolli,” which translates to “avocado sauce.”
  • Avocado, the main ingredient in guacamole, has been cultivated in Mexico for thousands of years and has a deep cultural significance in Mexican cuisine.
  • Traditional guacamole consists of mashed avocados, lime juice, salt, and a combination of ingredients like onions, tomatoes, and cilantro.

Vegan Guacamole represents a modern and plant-based adaptation of this beloved Mexican dip, making it accessible to a wider range of dietary preferences and lifestyles.

Note

Tips and Variations:

  • Add mango: For a tropical twist, mix in diced mango for a sweet contrast.
Serving Suggestions:
Allergen Information:
  • Vegan Guacamole is typically allergen-free in its basic form, as it contains avocados, lime juice, salt, and plant-based ingredients. However, if you add toppings or additional ingredients like nuts or seeds, be mindful of potential allergens. Always check the ingredient labels.
Wine or Drink Pairing:
  • Vegan Guacamole pairs beautifully with a variety of beverages. It's a classic companion to margaritas, Mexican beer, or a simple soda with a wedge of lime.
  • For a non-alcoholic option, enjoy it with sparkling water or a fruity herbal tea to complement the creamy avocado and zesty lime flavors.
Storage and Leftovers:
  • To store Vegan Guacamole, press plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the guacamole to minimize air exposure, which can cause browning. This creates an airtight seal and helps preserve the vibrant green color.
  • Store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1-2 days. The acid from the lime juice will help slow down oxidation.
  • Leftover guacamole can be enjoyed as a dip for tortilla chips, a topping for tacos or burritos, or even as a spread for sandwiches and wraps. Just be sure to mix it well before using to redistribute any moisture that may have separated.
