Kiwi Black Bean Guacamole

by Kristen Suzanne in recipe

Here’s a great recipe that is perfect for your next lunch. I love the way the kiwi gives it a lightness to offset the black beans and rich avocado. It will keep you filled with fiber, healthy fats, vitamin C, iron, and tons of antioxidants to help you live a long and healthy life!

Kiwi Black Bean Guacamole

Yield 1 serving

  • 1/2 cup cooked black beans* (rinsed well, if from a can)
  • 1 avocado, pitted, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cucumber, diced
  • 2 kiwi fruits, peeled and diced
  • 1 to 2 pinches of Himalayan crystal salt
  • pinch black pepper

Toss (and slightly mash) the ingredients together and enjoy!

*I either make mine in a pressure cooker (here’s the one I have after lots of research), or when I’m short on time, I open a can of Eden Organic Black Beans – no salt added and the cans are BPA-free. I buy them by the case on Amazon because it’s much cheaper than buying them from Whole Foods. I also like their chickpeas.

Of course, you can get a little fancier and add some diced shallot (or purple onion) and a little fresh basil for flair. ;)
