Wanting a "mayonnaise" type sandwich spread, but just can't find one without all the ingredients you're having to avoid ? This is so easy, I wish I had thought of it, but you have to give credit to my spouse, who's been putting it on my homemade sandwich rolls when he makes lunch. I finally thought to ask him to show me his secret.
How to Make Easy, Instant, Gluten Free "Mayonnaise" Spread from Avocado
avocado, very ripe, whole- Don't Peel !
olive oil, gluten free, choice
vinegar, gluten free (may sub lemon or lime juice)
salt, sea, (iodine free option)
spice of choice, optional, such as paprika
Take a ripe avocado. Slice it in half, top to bottom, around the pit, and pry out the seed. You now have 2 pieces of half avocado, sitting there in its own little mixing bowl. Take a little bit of oil of your choice, such as high quality extra virgin olive oil, and put a half teaspoon or so in the little cavity where the avocado pit was. Next, put in a sprinkle of pure, gluten free apple cider vinegar or lemon juice. Sprinkle with the salt product of your choice. Add a sprinkle of smoked paprika spice or other spice ingredient, if you feel like it.
Now, take a fork, and cradling the half avocado bowl in your hand, mash that sucker up inside the avocado skin, until it is well blended.
You now have a very tasty green "mayonnaise spread" that is just the right amount for a sandwich, and it has no egg, no soy, no iodine, and no food processor to clean up afterwards. This makes enough for 2 sandwiches if you use up both avocado halves, and don't save the one for tomorrow.
