curry guacamole

I’ve been a porch painting machine this week.  Also caulking, spackling, sanding, priming, + so forth.

All of that on top of an already busy week equals a tired + brainless Ashley.  And guess what slick move I made today?  While painting the ceiling of the porch a gigantic glob of paint fell right onto my eyeball.  So that was fun…

Despite my brainless brain, I have a little recipe to share with you. 

Just be thankful you aren’t getting the recipe for chilled coconut soup I made the other day.  Two versions were made, one which I hemmed + hawed about sharing and one which I promptly spit into the sink.  We’re just not even gonna’ go there.


Remember my curry honey hummus from way back when?  It’s definitely one of the top 5 most popular recipes on the blog.  After you make this guacamole you definitely need to check out the hummus.  While you’re at it, you can also make my veggie coconut curry and have a little curry party.

Curry Guacamole

  • 2 avocados
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 2 tsp minced ginger
  • 1 tsp curry
  • 2.5 tsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp cayenne [optional]
  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp salt
  1. Slice and pit the avocados and scrape the pulp into a bowl.
  2. Add in all the other ingredients and mash until just combined.  [Or if you prefer, mash until creamy.]
  3. Garnish with a little extra red onion and sprinkle of curry if desired.

notes: Sub maple syrup or agave for the honey to make this vegan.


Chip tested + approved.


Thanks for the feedback on my “day to day” post.  I enjoyed hearing from you all.  That series will continue soon!

Time to scrub paint off my arms + legs and collapse into bed.

I once had wasabi guacamole at a sushi place-- sooo good. I'll have to try this out!
Love the addition of curry, never would have considered that! Just made a big batch of guac a few days ago, already gone but already craving more. I will definitely be throwing some curry into it.

Sounds absolutely delicious, Ashley. I love curry AND avocados. I think I made a soup once with these two ingredients now that I'm thinking about it -- thanks for reminding me to try that combo again <3
That's the thing about food blogging - not everything works out! Last summer I tried to make a sweet corn and basil ice cream - complete flop - but I share it because I thought people could learn from what went wrong.
