The Best Cheesy Vegan Spread
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: spread
Serves: 2-4 people
  • 2 avocados, mashed
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice (or lime if you don't have any lemons)
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼-1/2 tsp onion powder (start with ¼ tsp and add more to taste)
  • ⅛ tsp chili powder (or more to taste)
  • ¼ tsp sea salt (or more to taste)
  • freshly ground pepper to taste
  • chopped fresh herbs such as parsley, cilantro, or chives (optional)
  1. Mash the avocados, place them in a small bowl along with the rest of the ingredients. Mix well, taste, and add more seasoning if desired.
  2. Alternatively, you can throw everything into a food processor and process until smooth and creamy. (for the first option is much more convenient, unless you need to mash 20 avocados, because who has time to clean a food processor, right?)
  3. That's it! It's that simple.
  4. The spread should last in the fridge for 2-3 days, though the avocados already start to brown on the second day so it's best to always make this fresh.
