This spin on guac is a great way to use a familiar favorite to introduce yourself to the funkiness of fermented foods. Tangy pickled vegetables with live cultures of gut-friendly bacteria will be replacing your probiotic supplement in 2017. With a dose of healthy fats and immune-boosting probiotics, this snack packs a serious punch of nutrition that's guaranteed to get you from one meal to the next.
Serve your "kimchimole" as a dip with crudite and whole grain crackers (try Mary's Gone Crackers or Suzie's Thin Cakes), spread into the groove of a celery stalk, or use as a topping for sweet potato toast. You can even eat it by the spoonful!
- 1/2 avocado
- 2 Tbs of kimchi + 1 tsp juices (Try Farmhouse Culture Kimchi!)
In a bowl, combine the avocado and kimchi, mashing with a fork. Dig in!
