JANET’S AVOCADO SPREAD
This is one of the easiest and most healthful spreads you can make. In a few minutes, you transform ripe avocados into a delicious spread that you can enjoy on everything from chips to tacos. My personal favorite is on whole-wheat or egg ’n onion matzos (cracker-like flat bread), a great snack when you’re in the mood for something yummy, light, and nutritious.
Prep time: 5 minutes Serves 4
2 large, ripe avocados
1 teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
½ teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Salt to taste
Rinse the avocados and cut them in half. Remove the pit from each. Scoop the avocado pulp onto a plate and mash it with a fork. Add the garlic powder, black pepper, olive oil, and lemon juice. Mix thoroughly until smooth. Add salt to taste. Serve immediately.
TIP: To remove the pit: Place the avocado on a cutting board. Using a large, sharp
knife (keep your hands out of the way), strike the pit with the blade, twist, and lift.
The pit should come right out.
