It’s time to swap out the peppers for radishes and the red onion for green onion.  Don’t worry, though.  We are absolutely keeping the avocados, cilantro, and lots of lime juice.

Serves 4

Ingredients

3 medium ripe avocados
3 green onions
4 medium radishes, greens removed
1/2 tsp fine pink Himalayan sea salt
1 tsp garlic powder
the juice of one small lime

Directions

1. Cut the avocados in half and remove the pit.  Cut the flesh of the avocados into cubes with a knife and scoop out with a spoon into a medium bowl.  Using a spoon or potato masher, mash the avocado cubes until they reach your desired consistency.  I like to keep things a bit chunky.

2. Slice the green onions and add them to the bowl of avocado.

3. Dice the radishes into small pieces and add to the bowl.

4. Sprinkle the avocado and veggies with salt and garlic powder.

5. Squeeze the juice of the lime on top and stir everything up until it is well-combined.

Totally non-traditional and totally delicious.  It may be nightshade-free, but you are definitely still going to get some spice!

Now go get your Spring on!

    Nowwwwww I want guac. But seriously it just lends the best ever flavors to EVERYTHING!!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl March 29, 2016, 9:45 am

      It DOES! I pretty much eat it with at least one meal every single day!

  • Meal Makeover Mom Janice March 29, 2016, 9:12 am

      The green onions and radishes really WORK in this guac. It has the perfect zesty bite without you actually realizing you’re eating green onions and radishes 😉

    This looks SO good! What a clever idea using radishes! I wonder if I can tolerate them as I can’t tolerate any kind of chilli/bell peppers… hm! I don’t like them on their own but this I think I could do!

    Also, if you want a tomato-like freshness without adding tomatoes (I can’t eat them either), it sounds a little odd but I’ve added strawberries to guacamole and it totally works! I don’t know if strawberries are a nightshade fruit though!

      I think you should definitely give them a try! I hope it works out for you so that you can enjoy some of the flavors of traditional guacamole!

  • Erin @ Her Heartland Soul March 29, 2016, 9:56 pm

      I can’t blame you there. I feel like I ALWAYS want all of the guacamole 😉

  • Courtney Bentley March 30, 2016, 4:10 pm

  • Jess @ Tiny Kitchen Chronicles April 18, 2016, 2:13 am

    Yum, adding radishes to guac is such a great idea, will give this a try!
