The Best Guacamole

The Best Guacamole

I am completely obsessed with guacamole. Really it is my favourite food. If I was to live on a dessert island for the rest of my life guacamole would absolutely be my food of choice, preferably with a side of sweet potato wedges and a bowl of dates. I just love it so much. I’ll eat it with anything and everything, at all times of the day. The thick, creamy texture satisfies every craving and I adore the subtle hints of spicy jalapeño peppers, juicy tomatoes and tangy lime. I think I have really perfected this recipe over the last few years. I’ve had a lot of compliments on this recipe and can’t believe I haven’t shared it yet. It’s also so easy, and makes for the perfect lunch accompaniment. If you’re in a rush just thickly spread it over crunchy toast and you’re in for a speedy treat. So simple, so great and so healthy. Avocados are real super foods, packed with fibre, antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids and a huge array of vitamins from beta-carroteine to vitamins K and C. Even better, avocados aid digestion and are bursting with anti-inflammatory properties, meaning guac is a delicious way to keep your insides happy. How perfect is that?

Makes 1 bowl of delicious guacamole

– 4 very ripe avocados

– 1 large/2 small jalapeño peppers

– 8 cherry tomatoes

– a handful of fresh coriander

– 3 limes

– salt

Serve with beautiful array of grilled veggies – broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, fennel, carrots, peppers, mushrooms, asparagus, zucchini… the list is endless.

Scoop the avocados out of their skins, removing the stones. Place the flesh into a bowl and mash with a fork to create a slightly chunky mix. Then dice the cherry tomatoes and peppers into tiny cubes, removing the seeds from the pepper first. Squeeze in the lime and add a generous amount of salt. Stir well then serve, scoop and enjoy.

    • ellawoodward

      I know onion is normally in there but raw onion just doesn’t agree with me so I leave it out – this would be amazing with tacos though you’re so right :)

        If raw onions are a bit harsh for your tummy, (or taste buds), do as India and Mexico do, and soak your diced onion in a bowl of iced water in the frig for 40 mins to an hour, then drain and add to your dish. This leaches out most of the pungency, and leaves you with crisp yummy digestible raw onions!
