Quick easy green harissa guacamole and classic guacamole

Green harissa guacamole
Guacamole burger
the guac was the star of this salmon burger, kinda took over in the pic! lol. its also great in black bean burgers and veggie burgers
Classic guacamole, i love it when i take a quick shot that doesnt show all my ingredients (red onion is hiding) :p

Instead of using a hot pepper i gave this guac its kick from green harissa paste (sold in jars either by hot sauce or international section). It also helps if you don’t like cutting hot peppers (because it can burn your or your child’s eyes if you aren’t careful!) but of course serrano chili or jalapeño can be used instead for a classic guacamole.


2 ripe avocadoes, mashed (or double or tripple the recipe for a party)

Generous Dash lime juice,

Optional for kick: 1-2 tbsp green harissa paste (to tolerance, im sure red harissa would work too but green blends right in) or a pinch of cayenne or 1 serrano chili, stems and seeds removed and minced

Optional: Pinch garlic powder or 2/3 tsp of minced garlic

Half a roma or regular tomato or tomatillo, chopped

1/2 of a red onion, finely diced

Sea salt, generous


Mash the avocados with the lime juice and salt, then mix in the harissa or pepper and chopped veg and give it a good stir.

If you can tolerate feta, a crumbling of it would be lovely too, but its not necessary, i haven’t tried vegan cheese with it yet.

Use it as a nacho dip or a spread for a burger (in the below pic I did a super basic guac burger and I didnt happen to have lettuce, red onion rings, tomatoes but they’d work with it)

i also once paired it with a turkey burger which took it from basic healthy turkey burger to a more exciting turkey burger (yes I know I was short on other fixings like tomatoes and red onions). you could use it to spice up a burger from any meat or salmon burger or a veggie burger such as black bean, chickpea or quinoa burger.
