Guacamole | Vegan & Sattvic

The traditional guacamole recipe calls for onions and garlic. I usually prepare this version of the guacamole for my mother, who is incurably obsessed with avocados. 🙂

While guacamole is normally used as a dip with tortilla chips or a sandwich spread, I also love eating it with cooked white rice. It makes for a healthy, light and refreshing meal. Try it!
