I was browsing through one of my many fitness, health and food magazines the other week…and noticed there were a bunch of dishes with avocado in them. I’m not a huge fan of plain avocado, as I find it’s too subtle for me. However, I LOVE guacamole and dishes that use avocado as a base, then have various ingredients added. This Mexican-style dish is one of those. It’s a savory dip/spread that’s as good with crackers and tortilla chips as it is spread on a bagel!
Yup-try this instead of cream cheese on your rye or pumpernickel bagel. (Not so much with cinnamon raisin-I’m a purist with those, just cream cheese is all you need!)
It only has a few ingredients! (I’m missing cumin here, so forgive me)
It whips up smooth and creamy with just the right touch of zing.
A Savory Summer Spread
- 2 ripe avocados
- 4 oz goat cheese
- juice of 1 large lime or 2 small ones
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 tsp cumin (or more to taste)
- 1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
- Throw everything in a food processor and blend until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Lasts about 10 days in the fridge.
Give it a try! If you’ve changed or added something, let me know! I’ll make it!
