Who loves guac?! Personally, I love guacamole… but I truly do not enjoy the speed at which I have to consume it so it does not turn brown. Once in a while I will make fermented kefir guac which doesn’t brown, but I can no longer tolerate dairy so lacto-fermentation is out. I recently took a trip to Middle Tennessee and met some fermentation hippies in posh Brentwood & Franklin but I had to leave off trying most of their goods because of nightshades & dairy. As soon as I got home I took my bag of mushy avocados and fermented onions and whipped up a gorgeous batch of nightshade free fermented guac. I ate it over two days. Not a hint of browning. Yum. Give it a shot! Let me know what you think!
Fermented Nightshade-Free Guacamole
- Food Processor
- 4 medium avocados
- 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro
- 1/2 cup fermented onions with brine
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 1 heaping teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon pink salt
- Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.
- You can leave this to culture for up to a day or enjoy it immediately. The ferment will slow down the browning of the avocados but won’t stop it completely so it should be eaten within a week.
