Guac!!!!!

Ohhhhhh the avocado….such a versatile vegetable…is it a vegetable?!!?!?! Let me google…hmm ok I guess it’s a fruit! Anyway….a FRUIT with tons of uses, most commonly in guacamole! I’m sure most people know how to make guacamole, but I was just making it for my house & thought that I haven’t shared the recipe & maybe it could change someones life!!!!! (too much?!) It’s a very basic, very simple procedure, but very enjoyable with some veggies (good girl/boy) or some blue corn chips (mmmmm hmmmm that’s right!) So easy to whip up for snacks, a picnic, to bring over someones house as a last minute thought!

avocado

Simple Guacamole:

3 avocados, ripe

1/2 red onion, finely diced

1 lime, juiced

1-2 tsp minced garlic

S&P to taste

pinch of cayenne, to taste

Hardest part here is cutting, pitting & scooping out the avocado, which is not that hard. After that is done, put the 3 avocados in a bowl. Pour in the lime juice & seasonings. Mash with fork or potato masher until you have your desired consistency, I like mine pretty smooth. Stir in the red onion & you are DONE! I like to make and serve the guacamole right away to prevent browning, typically the lime helps prevent this. You can also put the pit of the avocado in the guac until you are ready to serve, weird, but seems to help as well! Eat up! ❤

Paleo Sweet Potato Hash

Hey all!!!!!!! I just got back from vacation & I’m back in action!!!! =) I was thinking about side dish ideas tonight for dinner, something easy…& there were 3 sweet potatoes right there staring at me!!!!!! I’ve made a hash before with them, but this one had some tasty additions! As odd as this sounds, it sort of tastes like fried rice!! (Maybe I’m starting to become delusional…wah!) With that being said, feel free to add some protein (chicken, steak, pork) to make this an entree! YUM!

Sweet Potato Hash:

3 med-large sweet potatoes, shredded

4 celery stalks, diced

1 med yellow onion, diced

about 5 garlic cloves, minced

S&P

1 TBSP ground dried sage (I like exxxxtra sage!)

EVOO

Heat a deep pan or pot over medium heat. Saute the onion & garlic in EVOO until they start to get soft. Add in celery, saute for a few more minutes. Add in the shredded sweet potato, salt, pepper & sage. Cover & cook for about 5-10 minutes, stirring frequently until sweet potatoes are soft. Add some EVOO if the sweet potatoes get dry or start to stick! & that’s it!!! ALL DONE! You can enjoy this for breakfast with eggs, with lunch, or as a side or entree for dinner! This hash also makes perfect leftovers! ❤
