How to Make Goat Cheese Guacamole

Share

From the time they were old enough to eat solids, both of my kids loved avocados. Avocados are a lifesaver for moms on the run who have new eaters because they come in their own durable package, are healthy and filling, and when they are really ripe have a perfect smooth texture for babies. They are a most incredible fruit, packed with potassium, folic acid, and lots of fiber.

Over the years I've mashed avocados into reader favorites like Avocado Hummus, Big Kid Guacamole, and Kale Avocado Salad -- I've even used them in a shake, but to understand just how versatile the avocado is, you have to see what my sweet friend Gaby Dalkin does with them -- it's pure magic.

I adore Gaby's new cookbook Absolutely Avocados. It's opened a whole new culinary world to me, and that's saying a lot! Gaby came over to my house one day to shoot a video for one of her specialties, Goat Cheese Guacamole. In two words, it's crazy good!

    Wondering if I could use Feta instead of Goat Cheese? I love Feta with sun dried tomatoes!

      Oi Luciana, eu cresci sepmre comendo creme de abacate, era tao facil de fazer e uma delicia. O creme brulee de abacate tem uma textura mais leve, nao fica como o creme brulee tradicional, pois leva menos ovos, mais concerva o gosto do abacate.

      It’s a generous spoonful of the food. The child eats the small portion given to them and if they still don’t like it after trying it then they can say, “no thank you” and not eat anymore!
