If you guys don’t already have a “special sauce” recipe of your own, please go ahead and adopt my avocado anything dip — also known as “plant-based avocado special sauce” — as your own. You can serve it on practically anything (hello veggie burger spread) or dunk almost anything into it (yep, it’s a perfect Super Bowl party dip)!

grilled mediterranean avocado toast

You don’t need burgers for the barbecue … cook up this Grilled Mediterranean Avocado Toast.

So, here’s the yum-worthy result!
