Fermented Guacamole (Regular & AIP)

Fermented Guacamole (Regular & AIP)

Who loves guac?!  Personally, I love guacamole… but I truly do not enjoy the speed at which I have to consume it so it does not turn brown.  Once in a while I will make fermented kefir guac which doesn’t brown, but I can no longer tolerate dairy so lacto-fermentation is out.  I recently took a trip to Middle Tennessee and met some fermentation hippies in posh Brentwood & Franklin but I had to leave off trying most of their goods because of nightshades & dairy.  As soon as I got home I took my bag of mushy avocados and fermented onions and whipped up a gorgeous batch of nightshade free fermented guac.  I ate it over two days.  Not a hint of browning.  Yum.

If you’re all good with nightshades, which I am these days thanks to a whole lot of gut healing, just add in as many diced jalapeños as you like!  One for mild, 2-4 for spicy.

Give it a shot!  Let me know what you think!

  • Food Processor

  • 1 heaping teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon pink salt
