As much as I hate to admit it, I am a big 'food processor' fan. Let's me be honest though, I do highly dislike cleaning it after using it (who doesn't right?), but the ease and convenience it provides... the simple act of throwing all ingredients into the processor, hitting one button, and watching it all swirl together and become the best darn creamiest vegan guac there ever was... well, that makes all the scrubbing extra worth it. :p

but why use the food processor to make vegan gauc?

I know, I know, some of you may be thinking, but whyyyy use a kitchen equipment that is totally unnecessary? Whyyy add to the already ever growing stack of dirty-things-to-wash on the kitchen sink? Why not just grab a fork and smash it up the good ole way?

And I say.... yes, you can totally forfeit the use of the food processor.. You can totally just use a fork or one of those fancy mortar and pestle thinga-majiggers... but I promise you that the food processor option is tastier, creamier and definitely easier on the hands. 😉

Plus, as far as taste and consistency goes - the food processor helps break down the cilantro, green onions, garlic and onions (ps. I prefer to use red onions for guac, but ran out on the day of the photoshoot and subbed with yellow onions and it worked out really well), and it helps better distribute the flavor of the ingredients throughout the guac. If you prefer a chunkier guacamole, then feel free to skip the food processor completely.


8 ingredients in food processor to make easy creamy vegan guac

This vegan guacamole recipe is really easy. Seriously, it is. Just add all 8 ingredients to the food processor, hit that button and watch the avocado magic happen right before your eyes. I usually let mine process for a good 10 to 15 seconds or so, then I scrape down the sides and let it process a few more seconds.

You can stop whenever you feel that the avocado has broken down enough and it has reached the consistency that you like. Some people prefer a chunkier guac while others like it really creamy.
