Recipes

Spirulina Green Guacamole

Boost the nutrition and deep green color of creamy avocados with the addition of spirulina in this fresh guacamole recipe. Earthy cumin, fragrant Mexican oregano and spicy crushed red pepper flakes balance spirulina's strong flavor, making this recipe an easy way to incorporate this popular supplement into your diet.

Ingredients
2 avocados, pitted and diced
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 lime, juiced
1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt
2 tablespoons Spirulina*
2 tablespoons chopped onion
1 clove minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon Cumin
1/4 teaspoon Oregano
1/4 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
1 tomato, seeded and chopped
Additional avocado slices, for garnish
Directions
*Note: If you aren't accustomed to spirulina's strong, grassy, sea flavor, start with 1/2 teaspoon and add more to taste.

1. Mash avocados lightly in a bowl with lemon, lime juice and salt.
2. Mix in 1/2 teaspoon spirulina, onion, garlic, cumin, Mexican oregano and pepper flakes. Taste and add more spirulina as desired (see note).
3. Gently fold in chopped tomato.
4. Garnish with additional fresh avocado slices. Serve immediately with tortilla chips or as a condiment for tacos, burritos and sandwiches.
Spirulina and Nutritional Yeast Seasoning

In addition to a grassy, nutty and slightly cheesy flavor with a hint of heat, this blend is a great way to introduce the benefits of spirulina and nutritional yeast into your diet.

Ingredients
4 tablespoons Nutritional Yeast (flakes or powder)
1 teaspoon Spirulina Powder
1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt
1/8 teaspoon Cayenne, or to taste
Directions
1. Measure and thoroughly blend all ingredients.
2. Store mix in a glass jar or tin with a tight-fitting lid. Keep away from moisture. Sprinkle on popcorn, kale chips, steamed vegetables, baked potatoes and more.
