I’ve been slowing conquering groups of oils that I want to have on hand. This month will complete my citrus addiction and then I’m moving on to my Spice Cabinet Collection, as I’m calling it. As I’m incorporating oils into my everyday life, I’m cooking with them! I’m not a fancy cook or a stellar baker, but I make a lot of food in a little amount of time. Typically I prep the whole week (or more) in one day. So I like to make things easy. And I HATE squeezing or zesting a lemon! 

So last week while preparing for a "Make and Take" event, I whipped up some guacamole and a veggie dip using … Essential Oils! 

EO Guacamole

3 avocados

½ tomato, finely diced

½ onion, finely diced

1-2 drops of lemon

5-6 drops of lime

Sea Salt to taste

 

EO Veggie Dip I

¼ cup softened cream cheese

¼ cup sour cream (or plain Greek yogurt)

1 drop of Dill

1 drop of Lemon

1 drop of Basil

Salt & Pepper to taste
