This is a recipe that I learned while working as a Cooking Instructor for The Cancer Project. It completely changed my relationship with zucchini! Growing up as a kid, squash was on my “most hated” veggies list. I’ve come to realize that I just didn’t care for the over-cooked, soggy preparation my mother favored. The cook and prep process for this recipe is so simple, you’ll have plenty of time to prepare my Wholly!Mockamole and still be out of the kitchen in less than an hour.
Pair this meal with your favorite vegan beer and you’re ready for Cinco de Mayo!
