How to Make – “5 Minutes” Guacamole
An irresistible yet super nutritious snack, guacamole is one of my favourite party foods. Brimming with juicy, plump tomatoes and sweet, garlicky red onions, guacamole is a superfood that makes a fun social sharing dish as well as a flavour-packed topping on various dishes.
It’s also one of the easiest dishes to throw together and will be received with glowing compliments! I love making this when I have the girls over for a movie night or a dinner party. For a bit more flair, serve it with toasted parmesan crostini (for recipe, click here) instead of the traditional tortilla chips.
What you’ll need (serves 6 or 4 greedy people!):
- 2 ripe avocados
- 2 tomatoes (deseeded and diced)
- half a red onion (diced)
- juice from half a lemon
- 1 clove of garlic (crushed)
- salt & pepper to taste
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Crush 1 garlic clove in the pestle & mortar to release all the flavourful aromas.
Dice tomatoes and onion.
Cut avocados in half and scoop out the creamy flesh.
Cream the avocado in the pestle & mortar, and squeeze half a lemon over the mix. Sprinkle with salt & pepper to taste. Combine with the vegetables.
