Eat more Avos! try my not-quite-guac!

Image

I’m a sucker for avocados.. It’s funny, I never was.. eating something green and with that oily texture really put me off… But now, one of my favorite things is a bit of Vegemite, on some homemade sourdough with avocado (don’t forget the pink salt!). One thing I have been doing lately is making a heap of avocado spread (not-quite-guac) and adding it to many of my meals to give me those good oils!

Super simple my friends! if you don’t have a food processor buy one! seriously… I make whole meals in these things in less than 1 minute! in fact, I want to put together a bunch of my favorite 30 second¬†recipes! starting with this one!

Not quite guac

Ingredients

  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 1 garlic clove
  • ¬†Juice of 1 lemon (debatable, I use more, but friends who use my recipe add less, start with 1 lemon and adjust id like some feedback on this)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon pink salt

Method

Throw all ingredients into the food processor and whip it up! you might have to scrape down the sides 10 seconds in! but this whole process should take 20 seconds! you this for chips, spreads, wraps, salads! seriously… use it everywhere!

Get off the teat, make your own milk!

If I had a dollar for every person saying I’m less of a man for being vegan… I could of funded my own TV show instead of this blog. I find it quite funny how eating meat and dairy has become synonymous with being a ‘Man!’ please… tell me again how sucking on another animals breast milk makes you a man? Dairy milk has been associated with lots of health concerns, and without getting into too much debate now, I’m going to show you how even the laziest Aussie guy can make their own milk substitute as quick as it would take them to find their keys, wallet, phone and head to the shops for a litre of cows pus.

Simple, quick, Almond milk

ingredients

  • 1 cup of almonds
  • 4 cups of filtered water
  • teaspoon of sugar (brown, raw, honey, stevia, date sugar) (optional)

Method

Soak almonds in a cup of water before you go to bed. Drain the almonds the next morning, they will be fat and full of water. put the plump almonds into a blender and add 3 cups of filtered water and sugar (if using). blend for 2 minutes. pour liquid through a sieve and you have your own almond milk…

Yes… It’s that easy… and bloody delicious! I make my own curries and I use my almond milk in them. So i don’t even strain out the husks anymore!
