Keto Guacamole

Recipe by Brandon McDearis

This classic guacamole is the perfect addition to a ketogenic diet. The one tablespoon of olive oil per avocado gives this recipe a whopping 4.4:1 of fat to net carbs plus protein ratio. A ratio like that makes this recipe a great supplement to a ketogenic diet, leaving lots of room to pair this guacamole with low-carb chips and vegetables, or a high-protein piece of meat or fish. The abundance of nutrients and antioxidant properties of this recipe are an added bonus that makes it all the more appealing.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 ripe avocados, halved, seeded, and peeled
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • juice from 1 lime
  • dash of Tabasco
  • ¼ red or white onion, finely diced
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and finely diced
  • 1-2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

PREPARATION:

  1. Put avocados, olive oil, garlic, lime juice, and Tabasco in a large bowl. Mash together thoroughly with a potato masher or fork.
  2. Fold in the rest of the ingredients and add salt and pepper to taste.
