Smoky Charred Avocados

Makes 8 avocado halves
Author: Molly Patrick


  • tablespoons lime juice
  • tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 2 teaspoons nutritional yeast
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • teaspoon black pepper (about 5 turns)
  • dash of hot sauce (optional)
  • 4 medium ripe avocados


  • Place your oven rack in the second slot slot down from the top (about 4” from the element / flame. Preheat your oven to broil.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the lime juice, soy sauce, coconut aminos, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, black pepper, and hot sauce (if using).
  • Slice your avocados in half and remove and discard the pits. Place the avocado halves cut side up on a baking sheet. Use a knife to lightly score 3-4 lines across the tops of each avocado, going about halfway down.
  • Use a basting brush to brush the tops of the avocados with the lime juice mixture, allowing some of the juice to pool in the center of the avocado.
  • Place the baking sheet into your oven and broil until the tops of the avocados begin to brown and then char, about 3-4 minutes. Keep an eye on them so they don’t burn!
  • Slice and serve on salad or enjoy alone!
