Healthy Recipe: Kimchi Gaucamole

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!


In a bowl, combine the avocado and kimchi, mashing with a fork.  Dig in!
