Avocado Butter

Gretchen Roberts
Ingredients
  • Basic recipe:
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1 scant tablespoon lemon or lime juice
  • 12 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 14 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Directions

If you like a little texture, mash by hand; if you prefer creamy, use a food processor or blender to purée. This recipe is great for using up very ripe avocados.

To prepare: Mash avocado with lemon or lime juice, salt, and pepper. Cover tightly and refrigerate or serve immediately. If desired, add any of the following:

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon fresh minced oregano or thyme
1 tablespoon fresh minced parsley, basil, or cilantro
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
