I love simple. I love easy. And I love it when you can make simple and easy taste great.
It’s been hot here, and I will not complain, because after a very long winter I needed some heat. Is there a “but” coming here? Well, sort of. My only “but” is that I don’t want to heat up the house with the stove, so I’m making a lot of salads, beans-in-crockpot, and barbeque meals.
So, I made a vegan guacamole to tame down my spicy beans, and I want to share it with you. It’s a great substitute for sour cream, if you’re looking for one. Be forewarned though. I like my guacamole garlicky, and if you put this much garlic in your guac you may not be welcome in certain social circles, like neighborhood picnics. As always, feel free to add, take away, or edit this recipe. This is meant for two people, but you can absolutely double it if you want.
