Guacamole

Avocado is in-fact a fruit and a yummy one at that! Avocados are high in healthy fats and are incredibly nutritious and contain a wide variety of nutrients. The most abundant nutrients are Vitamin K, folate, vitamin C, B5, B6, E and potassium (more potassium than bananas). Avocados don’t contain any cholesterol or sodium and are low in saturated fat and high in monounsaturated oleic acid – a heart healthy fatty acid!

Guacamole is an avocado based dip originating in Mexico. It is a nutritious dip packed full of flavour using very minimal ingredients. The recipe below is my take on a chunky guacamole – the best version of this classic dip in my eyes!

Ingredients

  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, thinly diced
  • Splash of Tabasco sauce- optional
  • 1 lemon juice and zest
  • Handful of fresh coriander, thinly sliced (save some for decorating)
  • Pinch of chili flakes
  • Salt and pepper

 

Method

  • Place all the guacamole ingredients in a bowl and mash the mixture using the back of a fork.
  • Serve with vegetable crudités or tortilla chips and enjoy!

Note – If not serving straight away place the pip of the avocado in the bowl with the other ingredients to prevent the dip from going brown.

Happy dipping!
