Deviled Avocados ~ Raw Food Recipe

serves 2 ~ $1.81 per serving






  •  3 avocados ($3.57)
  • 1 tablespoon mustard ($.05)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon macadamia mayo*


My local store has had excellent prices on avocados over the last few months, sometimes as low as seventy-eight cents each. The prices are going up again so I thought I'd do some things with the last of the lower priced avocados. Getting to know your produce manager can help you save money ... they are who will know what's coming in season, what's going on sale, etc. Also, you can arrange bulk purchases with them for some produce items.


I used to love the mustardy taste of deviled eggs. This isn't identical, probably doesn't even qualify as a "faux food," but it's still mustardy good. Prepared mustard isn't raw ... mustard powder to taste can be used instead.


In a bowl, mash one avocado until mostly creamy but still slightly chunky. Mix in the mayo, mustard, paprika, salt and pepper. Cut the remaining avocados in half and fill with the mixture. Sprinkle with a pinch of paprika.


* macadamia mayo


  • 1 cup macadamia nuts
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon agave
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


Blend the macadamia nuts, water, and salt until smooth and creamy, which may take a minute or two. A personal or bullet type blender can be used for this.

    1. Hi Sanni, I don't always use organic. Ideally, everything I use would be organic, but sometimes it's not.
