I have 6 super ripe avocados from the produce slime cart. I need ideas.

I totally forgot to mention an all-time fave. From Celia Brooks Brown's "Vegetarian Party Food" originally, here's my veganized version:

avocado soup

Mash together (makes kinda like a thin guac:
4 ripe avocados
juice from 2 limes
3/4 c. soygurt
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 red chili pepper, deseeded and chopped finely
salt and pepper to taste

Heat broiler.

Warm 3 cups vegetable stock until it's hot, but not boiling. Mix the stock into the avocado mixture and ladle into warmed, oven-proof serving bowls.

Top each bowl with tortilla chips and some daiya fake cheese (or your favorite melting vegan cheese - a little goes a long way here). Spray fake cheese with nonstick oil spray. Put bowls on a cookie sheet and under the broiler for a couple minutes until the cheese melts. Serve!

A spoon. Pepper. Salt. That's all you need to enjoy an avocado.

I have a friend who just kind of mashes them up with salsa to make a sort of guacamole/salsa hybrid. It's quite tasty.

I made some slackers guac and noticed how spotty they are already :(.

Slackers Guac:
2-3 Avocados
1 giant glove of garlic (2 normal ones) crushed
dash of Cayenne pepper
Lime juice

Scoop Avocado, crushed garlic into a mason jar. Sprinkle cayenne and juice lime until kinda wet. Attatch mason jar to blender and blend until smooth.

This, minus the pepper and salt, plus vegan mayo of your choice.

Mash them with banana, cocoa and sweetener of choice, freeze for 6 hours, defrost for 1.

Raw ice cream! It appears to be made of ingredients, but is actually made of noms.

I eat them on toast with Tofutti cream cheese and baby spinach. I go through a lot of avocados at impressive speeds when I'm going through a toast phase.

Over the summer I'll eat one a day. Watch out though, they are aphrodisiacs! I felt myself getting lusty over everyone.


Avocado, vegan sour cream, lime, salt, cumin, and paprika. MEAN DIPPING SAUCE. It's a little bitter, but it pairs well with savory entrees and goes great with anything fried/breaded.
