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.
