Avocado-Miso Dip

A hearty, nutritious dip, similar to guacamole but tangier.  Makes a cup or two, depending on the size of the avocado.


  • 1 avocado, ripe and pitted
  • 1 heaping tbsp brown miso*
  • 1/2 lemon, juice and pulp (or 3 tbsp lemon juice)
  • 2 tbsp oil (virgin olive, cod liver, sunflower, etc.)
  • 1 tsp each ginger, turmeric, pepper
  • 1 pinch Real salt


Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mashing the avocado in the process.  Serve with pita bread or assorted chips such as organic tortilla chips, sweet potato chips, etc.

* Miso is made primarily from fermented soybeans, which is more nutritious than non-fermented soy.  Brown miso has a stronger, saltier flavor than white miso.  Both may be available in the foreign foods aisle of your market.
