This vibrant fresh dip is easy to make with liberally seasoned avocados and lime juice. A delicious way to incorporate nutritious avocados into your diet. Serve with a bowl of tortilla chips for a tasty snack or spread onto toast for the most exquisite breakfast!
I firmly believe guacamole is the best way to eat avocados. Don’t get me wrong, I love chunks of avocado in a salad or sliced avocado on toast but when it is transformed into a dip with a little lime juice, seasoning and spring onion, it really comes into its own and tastes so vibrant and fresh. (I guess I’m a bit biased too since I’m a major fan of dips of all kinds anyway!)
Avocados – the super tasty superfood
Avocados are extremely popular with the healthy-eating crowd, and quite rightly so I say! They are full of nutrients and a great source of healthy fats. Did you know that avocados also contain more potassium than bananas? As someone who is not very keen on the taste of bananas, I am delighted to find out that avocados can be my potassium source instead!
Catching avocados at their best
Notoriously difficult to catch at their perfect ripeness, this guacamole recipe can help you preserve your avocados at their best! We all know that infuriating moment, having waited days for your avocado to ripen, you wait a moment too long and then cut into your avocado only to find it’s already turned into a brown mush.
So here is your solution. If you’re not ready to eat the avocado when it’s ready for you to eat it, you can turn it into guacamole and the lime juice content will keep it vibrant and fresh for a couple of days!
What to eat guacamole with
Obviously, guacamole is a must with Mexican dishes but there are loads of other ways to use guacamole so it doesn’t last long in my fridge! Here are a few ideas:
- Guacamole on toast is a delicious breakfast that will keep you going for hours;
- A serving of guacamole is fantastic in buddha bowls;
- Try a portion of guacamole on top of salad;
- Wrap guacamole and salad and fried tofu in a tortilla for lunch;
- Mix guacamole with wilted baby spinach for a quick pasta sauce.
- Nachos with guacamole;
- Dollop guacamole on top of tacos or chilli;
My version of guacamole is really just avocado loosely mashed with a fork and mixed together with some sliced spring onions, chopped coriander, a good squeeze of lime and liberal seasoning with salt and pepper. I like the pepper grinds to be quite chunky as the taste really complements the avocado and lime flavours.
