Perfect Guacamole from Delicious Avocado Vegan. Guacamole is my favourite summer (fruit) snack. This delicacy originates from Mexico and is prepared mainly from avocado, salt, lime, peppers, tomatoes, onion and coriander – and for the brave, a bit of hot and sexy chilli!
However you like it, avocado is an ideal food for the brain as it contains an abundance of healthy fats. Our brain is made up of 80% fat. Good fats are essential and necessary for a proper functioning brain. Avocado also contains masses of vitamin E. According to Dr. Amen (Book: Change your brain, change your life), avocado is one of the main foods for brain health and helps to prevent Alzheimer’s disease. The fruit also has a positive effect on the heart, regulates blood pressure, regulates blood sugar, feeds the eyes, supports pregnancy and enhances beautiful skin. Let’s do some cooking then! Perfect Guacamole from Delicious Avocado Vegan.
- time 10 minutes
- difficulty easy
- diet no dairy, flour/gluten, nuts, yeast, sugar, meat
WHAT YOU NEED
- 2 ripe avocados
- 1 small onion
- a few leaves of fresh coriander
- 1 lime
- 1/2 red (bell) pepper
- chilli flakes
- 1 tomato (deep red)
- First I cut the avocado in half & remove the seeds. Then I use the spoon to take off the peel. Next I put the avocado flesh into a bowl
- To the bowl with avocado I add freshly squeezed lime juice and a pinch of salt. Lime makes the avocado stay nice and green rather than becoming dark
- Next I peel and finely chop the onions then add them to the bowl. I do the same with red peppers, coriander and tomato. Before chopping the tomato I remove the inside seedy bit
- Finally I mix it all or even crush it a little bit with a fork. You can add more salt or lime if you wish. Sprinkle some chilli flakes on top and drizzle with some lovely extra virgin olive oil
- Instead of bread or nachos I serve with rye crispy bread. To add a little bit of character to the crunchy bread I sprinkle oregano and inactive yeast flakes. Yummy!
