Another Secret Recipe Club post come and gone and another summer almost at it’s end! I can’t even believe it! Time flies when you’re havin’ fun I guess (:
This month for my SRC post I as assigned Juanita’s Cocina, a wonderfully written and designed food blog by Jen. Every blog I am assigned always has it’s difficulties due to the fact that I live a plant-based life, but that doesn’t stop me from drooling over almost all of Jen’s amazing recipes!! Why am I forced to only choose one recipe… No fair!!
In the end, I decided to go with a nice, simple bean spread with my favorite ingredient: avocado <3
Smashed White Bean and Avocado Spread
1 can great northern beans, drained
1/4 bunch green onions (about 8 stalks), diced
1/4 teaspoon crushed garlic (I used jarred)
Heaping pinch pink Himalayan sea salt
1 ripe avocado, roughly chopped
In a medium bowl with a spoon or fork, roughly mash the beans with the green onions, garlic, and sea salt. Mash to your desired consistency. I left some of the beans whole, but feel free to mash until smooth.
Add the avocado and mash together until completely combined.
Enjoy this bean spread as a condiment for sandwiches, a dip for veggies, or simply on toast as a nice appetizer or snack (just like Nigella Lawson’s “Breakfast Toast”).
