Guacamole con Alga Marina

Guacamole does not have to be complicated.  In fact, it’s one of the easiest, fastest – and most delicious – dips you can make.  This is a very basic recipe, made with the addition of kelp granules, which add a salty flavor along with some extra nutrition.   This recipe name translates literally to “guacamole with seaweed”, and this recipe name was offered up by a visitor to my website (and let’s face it, this recipe name makes this dish sound fantastically sophisticated)!
Course dips
Servings 4


  • 1 ½ - 1 ¾ cups avocado cut in chunks (roughly 2 medium-large avocadoes, peels and stones removed)
  • 1 - 1 1/2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
  • ¼ tsp sea salt a little scant
  • 1 tsp kelp granules I use Maine Coast Sea Seasonings brand


  1. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients (starting with 1 tbsp of lemon juice) and mash.  Mash to desired consistency, keeping some chunkier pieces or mashing until fairly smooth.  Serve, seasoning to taste with additional sea salt and lemon/lime juice if desired (you may want the extra lemon juice and a touch more salt if using the full 1 ¾ cups of avocado). Serves 4 or more (maybe 2 in my house)! :D
