Idalia's Protein Guacamole

Idalia’s Protein Guacamole

2           Large Avocados
1           Medium red/white Onion
1           Tablespoon Minced Garlic
1           Whole Lemon Juiced
2           Cups of rough chopped cherry tomatoes (or tomatoes of your choice)
¼          Cup of nutritional yeast
1           full serving of plant based non flavored protein powder (I use Plantfussion or  Warrior raw Protein powder)
1-2       Roasted Poblano peppers diced
4-6       Jalapeños diced
1-2       Bunches of diced cilantro
8-12oz   Liquid ( water, coconut milk)

A mixture of Seasonings: garlic powder, onion powder, cumin (get creative). dd salt to your liking. The nutritional Yeast will give the saltiness it needs.
This is about building flavors and having fun making something nutritious. By adding protein to this side dish it can become your main Entrée.  
I always start by Roasting the Poblano peppers on a Comal (non-stick pan) or just over the stove flames. Set them aside inside a plastic bag it will become easier to clean once you are ready to dice them up.

Bowl Number 1: Make sure  is a good size Bowl.

Finely dice Onion, Add lemon juice, and Minced garlic. Add to Bowl 1
Diced Jalapeños (you can take the seeds out, this will cut the heat). Add to Bowl 1
Rough chop tomatoes is you want the dish to look rustic, or get fancy with it (just have fun). Add to Bowl 1
Finely chop Cilantro. Add to Bowl 1

Bowl Number 2:

Add Protein powder, Nutritional yeast, and your choice of seasonings. Slowly add your Liquid just enough to dissolve the powder.
Add Avocado just like the tomatoes you get to decide how you want it smashed or diced (I make my depending on the ripeness of the avocado)
Mix well until mixture is well blended together.
Add contents of Bowl number 2 to bowl number 1

Taste and adjust flavors. I usually add more lemon, and more spice.
