Guacamole is another one of those things that is definitely worth making instead of buying. That way, you can be sure what’s in it – and know that it won’t contain any nasties!
This is how I make mine.
- 4 chillies, finely sliced
- Small bunch coriander (cilantro), finely chopped
- 3 tomatoes, finely diced
- Sea salt to taste
- 1 red onion, finely diced
- Juice of ½ lime
- 4 ripe avocados
Guacamole How To:
Use a pestle and mortar to grind together the chillies, coriander (cilantro), tomatoes, sea salt and onion, until you reach a paste consistency.
Add the lime juice, and a dash of water if required, to make the mixture more fluid. Finally, mash in the avocados, just before you’re ready to serve!
Guacamole is great with almost any Paleo meal, and a great dip for raw vegetables – particularly alongside some homemade Pâté!
Guacamole is one of those foods best made fresh. It will store in the fridge for a short time, but won't look as appealing! If you need to make it up in advance, using more lime will help it to keep that bit longer.
