Quick & Easy Guacamole {gluten and soy free, and vegan}

I am obsessed with avocados. They're just so... perfect! Guacamole is one of my go-to snack foods, because it's so easy to pull together and it's packed with lots of good-for-you veggies.

Guacamole is easy to personalize. If you're not a fan of tomatoes, leave them out! If you love tomatoes, then by all means, add extra. If you prefer hot, spicy dishes, add extra hot sauce. You get the idea.

You'll Need:
2-3 Avocados {depending on their size}
1-2 Medium Tomatoes {diced}
1 Red Onion {finely diced}
1 Lime
Hot sauce

To Make:
Halve your avocados, remove the pit, and scoop the meat into a mixing bowl.
Cut the lime in half, and squeeze the juice over the avocado.
Using a potato masher, mash the avocado a bit, breaking down the large chunks.
Add tomato and red onion to suit your tastes, then sprinkle with salt and a touch of hot sauce.
Mix the ingredients once more using the potato masher.
Serve with tortilla chips, as a side dish for enchiladas or tacos, or with veggies for dipping.


  1. Hi, this looks like a great site and the recipes look good. I am not sure what Earth Balance is, but if it is your oil or margarine, may I humbly suggest Coconut Oil? It is so healthy and works beautifully in all my baking. Thanks.

    1. Hi Corey! You're right--coconut oil is great stuff, isn't it?! Earth Balance is a non-GMO, soy and gluten free, vegan 'spread,' that, yes, is my replacement product for butter. It's a favorite of mine :) ...but--I certainly do use and enjoy coconut oil in my kitchen too. If you opt to try any of my recipes, you could certainly omit Earth Balance {or oil, when called for} in favor of coconut oil.
