Avocado Mousse

December 12, 2017

Author Notes: This simple preparation makes a fantastic dipping sauce, and it also works as a condiment on sandwiches or a lazy alternative to making guacamole. The texture is silky smooth, so this preparation works if you are looking to use avocado but you want a textural change of pace. Josh Cohen

Directions

  1. Put the flesh of the two avocados into a food processor, and add three pinches of salt. Pulse the avocado for about 1 minute, until the texture resembles avocado that has been smashed with a fork.
  2. Add the juice of 1 lime along with a small pinch of cayenne. Turn on the food processor again and let it run for about 2 minutes, until the avocado mixture has a smooth and silky texture. Taste the avocado mousse. Adjust with more salt, lime, or cayenne as necessary. This mixture can last for a couple of days stored in the refrigerator, but the color may fade from green to brownish over time. Serve the avocado mousse as a dipping condiment, or use it on sandwiches in place of mayo.
