Laura's Vegan Table


  • 2 ripe avocados, pitted and peeled
  • juice of one lemon or lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 15 ounce can black beans, drained
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Blue corn tortilla chips for serving

A healthy dish with ghoulish colors to serve for Halloween! Creamy green guacamole with the added protein and fiber of black beans is vegan and gluten free. Avocado provides healthy fats and has anti-inflammatory properties. Black beans’ fiber and antioxidants help lower cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels. Serve along with blue corn tortillas for a spooky effect!


Add the avocados to a large bowl and mash with a masher or fork, leaving a chunky texture. Add in the lemon juice, salt and garlic powder and combine with a spoon or spatula. Add in the beans and cilantro and stir to combine. Serve with blue corn tortillas.
