  • Category: Appetizer

Ingredients

  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 c. yogurt cheese (or 4 oz. goat cheese)
  • 23 Tbs. lemon juice
  • (optional) 1/4 tsp. lemon zest
  • 13 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. salt (Use the code kitchenstewardship for 15% off of your first purchase)
  • 1/4 c. fresh parsley or cilantro (or about 1 Tbs. dried)

Instructions

  1. Whiz the garlic in a food processor first, then add the avocado, yogurt cheese, lemon juice and salt. Process everything until smooth.
  2. Stir in herbs.
  3. Serve with carrot sticks, sliced bell peppers and other vegetables for dipping.

Notes

*For children, yogurt cheese is a friendlier option than goat cheese (and has the probiotics). Shoot low on the garlic for kids too.

*If you don’t have a food processor, crush the garlic separately and try an immersion blender (found on Amazon) or just mash well with a fork.

*If not serving right away, leave the avocado pit in the dip and try to use a cover that touches the dip to prevent oxidation (browning).
