Guacamole – Basic recipe:
1 large avocado
1 small clove garlic, crushed
¾ tablespoon lemon or lime juice, or to taste
salt and black pepper, to taste
Very yummy additions:
I add all of these, but feel to pick and choose and will!
1 small tomato, diced
Sprig of parsley or coriander, chopped
2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds – mineral and protein rich with a yummy crunch!
2 sun-dried tomatoes (soaked in water, if not stored in oil), chopped
fresh or dried chili, to taste
4 olives, stones removed, and chopped
1 tablespoon chopped red bell pepper
1 tablespoon finely chopped red onion
1 teaspoon coriander seeds, crushed (or ½ teaspoon ground coriander)
Make mine a Cacaomole!
Add 1.5 teaspoons cacao powder
Superlove, me baby!
For a super-dooper nutritional boost, add any, or all of the following, which you will find in on-line raw food shops.
½ teaspoon purple corn – high in antioxidants
½ teaspoon reishi mushroom powder – great for the immune system
1 tablespoon goji berries – high in vitamin c, contains B vitamins, and all of the essential amino acids
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes – high in B vitamins, also adds yummy savoury taste. (Not raw)
** note, if your avocados are the not the best, and are a little pale and watery, you may want to add 1 teaspoon olive oil, to add a little richness. If using cacao, then ½ teaspoon agave syrup will help your naughty avocado regain a sense of roundness!
