Homemade Guacamole Vegan
Guacamole is one of my absolutely favorite recipes. I make guacamole all the time.As a matter of fact, everyone in my house loves guacamole. We are rarely out of avocados!

I find that when I have extra company at one of my gatherings, I quickly whip up a batch of guacamole and serve it with a bag of tortilla chips.

I also like to serve guacamole on top of Burgers or in Quesadillas.

I love the buttery texture and it keeps me feeling full after eating. Avocados contain monounsaturated fat, vitaminAvocados contain monounsaturated fat, vitamin

    Emily, I challenge you to make two batches of guacamole and lev
    e them on the counter overnight. Leave the avocado pit in one batch and notice rhe obvious difference in the morning.

    Thank you Emily for stopping by . I believe from my experience that leaving the seed in the avocado does slow the oxidative process. Avocado seed contains Vitamin A, C and E which are antioxidants and may be the reason for that happening. Many old wives tale are later confirmed by scientists to be true!
