Avocado as a “good fat” butter substitute

Avocados are a “superfood” that allow for a healthy substitute for virtually any saturated animal fat.  It may take some experimenting to get it just right but here is an avocado puree recipe that I regularly use:

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 -1 1/2 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil [you may also use sesame oil, walnut oil, or avocado oil (not toasted sesame oil)
  • 1/4 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon jalapeno pepper, minced [for those who live on the spicy side]
  • kosher salt
  • fresh ground black pepper
