  1. Melt ghee in the skillet over high heat. Add mushrooms and salt; cook, without stirring, until they release their moisture, 1 to 2 minutes. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until browned, 5 to 8 minutes. Add shallots; cook and stir until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  2. Mix avocado into the mushroom mixture; cook and stir until avocado is creamy, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and ground black pepper.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Bacon fat or lardons can be substituted for the ghee.
  • If using lardons, cook in a skillet over medium-low heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Reserve 2 tablespoons of grease in the skillet for cooking. Add lardons back into the skillet with the avocado.

This was good- used canned instead of fresh mushrooms, but will use fresh next time. Also used onions instead of shallots as it was what I had on hand. My husband ate it and usually does not eat...

Delicious and healthy! I didn't have the patience to stir the chopped avocado until it became creamy so I just left it chunky.
