Chia seeds boost nutrition & lower calories in Julie's guac!
2 Tbsp Navitas Naturals Chia Seeds
1 very large juicy Tomato (Heirloom varieties are great)
1 large Avocado
1 tsp Garlic Powder
¼ tsp Onion Powder
¼ cup White onion, minced (plus extra for garnish)
2 Tbsp Cilantro, minced (plus extra for garnish)
2 Tbsp fresh Lime Juice
Sea salt (optional)
Hot Sauce, to taste (optional)
In a food processor or blender, blend the tomato into a chunky puree. Transfer to a small bowl, add the chia seeds, and stir well to combine. Let sit for 10 minutes to allow the chia seeds to swell and the mixture to thicken.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mash the avocado with the back of a fork into a paste. Add the garlic powder, onion powder, mixed onion, cilantro and lime juice, and mix well. Add the thickened tomato-chia mixture and stir. Add sea salt to taste, and spike with hot sauce, if desired, to preferred heat level. Transfer to a serving bowl and top with extra chopped onion and cilantro.
