Family friendly guacamole

22nd October 2015


In case you aren’t interested in eating crudités on their own, this recipe is a simple fresh family friendly guacamole recipe that my Mexican friend Delia shared with me a while back. Avocados are one of the most nutritionally dense and nourishing things on the planet.


4 avocados, (no brown bits)
2 limes
½ red onion, finely diced
1 large tomato, diced
2 tablespoons finely chopped coriander
Salt & pepper to taste

Fresh chilli, finely chopped, to taste


Mush the avocado with a potato mash. Squeeze the two limes into the avocado then stir in the onion, tomato and coriander. Add salt and pepper to taste.  If you’re only serving adults, add finely chopped fresh chilli peppers to taste.

This is such a versatile recipe.  You can serve it on rye toast with poached eggs for breakfast or with crudités, corn chips and crackers for snacking or entertaining.  It won’t last beyond the day – despite the amount of lime, after 24 hours it will go brown.  Not that I have ever had leftovers….
