Easy-Peasy Guacamole

Posted on Updated on

guacamole

This recipe is gluten free and vegan.

Ingredients:

  • 2 large, ripe avocados
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed or minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • chopped cilantro to taste
  • lime juice to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • optional: 1 roma tomato, chopped
  • optional: 1 fresh green chile (like a poblano pepper), seeded and finely chopped

Instructions:

  1. Cut avocados in half lengthwise, and twist the halves sideways to separate.  Stab the pits with the point of a sharp knife, and lift to remove.
  2. Peel and coarsely chop the avocado halves, and place in a nonmetallic bowl.
  3. Add lime juice and olive oil.
  4. Mash everything with a fork until the desired consistency is reached – this is all personal preference!  I like mine smooth. Blend in the onion, tomato, chile, garlic, cumin, and chopped cilantro, then season with salt and pepper.
  5. Transfer to a serving dish and serve immediately, to avoid discoloration.  Note – I don’t really find that the taste is affected when the guacamole starts browing, so it should be just fine kept overnight in an airtight container in the fridge.
  6. Garnish with cilantro leaves, if you like!

Enjoy!  🙂
