Picture from our Anti-anxiety Culinary Nutrition cooking class.

This recipe was inspired by my good friend and neighbor who makes her guacamole a little spicier and also uses red onion instead of green. Since I like a more mild flavor (red onions bother my digestion), I prefer it this way!

Serves 6

Ingredients:

2 ripe avocados, mashed

½ teaspoon Himalayan pink salt

2 Tablespoon fresh lime juice

2 Tablespoons thinly sliced green onion

1 jalapeno pepper, deseeded and finely chopped

2 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

2 cloves of minced garlic

Putting it all together:

  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
