With the commencement of spring comes vacation, school spring break, Easter, graduations and warmer weather. This means I am in the mood for dips, spreads, appetizers and all things meant for gathering of friends and family. I also love a dip that you can make and use on a myriad of things. Spread for sandwich? Yep. Spread for avocado toast? Mmmhmmm. Sauce for grilled chicken? Oh, yeah. Dip for veggies? Sí! How about a dip for roasted sweet potato fries? Oh, yesssss.
And did I mention it’s DELICIOUS? And also just happens to check off some boxes: vegan, gluten free, free from the top-9 food allergens, keto, anti-inflammatory, full of healthy fats. Not to mention super easy to prepare!
So whether you’re trying to get some new spreads in your repertoire for sandwiches and wraps or you just want something easy to enjoy with toast, scrambled eggs or even just some sliced veggies this is it! Bonus!!! I’ll tell you how to keep almost overripe avocados so you can still use them without turning bad.
