It’s no secret that our girls love guacamole. We go through many avocados a week. One night I decided to stretch the avocados and bump up the guac nutritional profile with the addition of white beans. Somewhat a cross between a guacamole and a hummus, this thick, creamy dip is a hit in our house.
Dreena Burton's White Bean Guacamole
2 lightly packed cups roughly chopped/sliced ripe avocado
1 cup white beans
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2–21/2 tablespoons lemon juice
Water, to thin as desired
Place the avocado, white beans, sea salt, lemon juice, and water in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Season to taste with additional salt and/or lemon juice.
- Kick it up for the adults by stirring in one of these add-ins: a few tablespoons of a mild salsa, minced fresh parsley or cilantro, or grated garlic.
- Try pureeing in a handful or two of baby spinach (this will smooth out best in a Blendtec). It will simply intensify the green color and you’ll have added a little extra green power!
- FV Note: We prefer a chunkier guac, so we mashed our avo + beans with a fork rather than a food processor. We also added a sprinkle of red pepper flakes and some fresh cilantro on top!
