Be Real Meals

Don’t miss out on next week’s meals! Sign up, pronto, my friend: I want a free recipe!

During the holidays I have even less energy to cook, but somehow I find myself signed up to bring food to every holiday bash in town. Then I start debating what to make that’s healthy, and that people (other than myself) will think actually tastes good. So what is quick, easy, no bake, healthy, and tasty? I’m bringing you the magic today, lovies. And it gets better- you can use this as a party appetizer, weekly snack, or dinner! Minor adjustments with major benefits.


1/2- Whole Avocado
1 cup Garbanzo Beans (or chicken for a non-vegan recipe)
1/2 the Juice from a Lime
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Course Brown Mustard
Salt and pepper to taste (pink salt is my flavorite)
Mixed veggies of choice (I used a coleslaw blend from Whole Foods)


Mash half an avocado (or a whole, depending on the size and how creamy you want your spread) in a mixing bowl. Add a cup of garbanzo beans (or chicken if you like). I get mine from Whole Foods because they have cans with a non-BPA lining. And it was about $0.79? Add in lime juice, garlic powder, mustard, salt and pepper. Mix in veggies. I got a pre-made coleslaw mix from Whole Foods with cabbage, carrots, etc. for about $1.84. Mix, stir, cream, taste, adjust seasonings. You’re done!

Now, you can serve this with crackers at a party for a creamy, hearty dip. Or, you can serve it on toasted sourdough or gluten free toast for dinner, and top it with your grilled veggies of choice (think: onions, bell peppers, etc). We kept our bowl in the refrigerator as our snack for the week.

I’ll be sharing a session on my Instagram of different ways people have made this, so if you try it out, don’t forget to send me a pic!
