So before I went vegan I don’t think I EVER ate avocado or knew what guacamole was apart from being some green weird looking dip I had zero interest in trying! lol So there must be more people like me out there who literally do not know what this stuff is or what it ‘tastes like.
Maybe you have just gone vegan like I did 3 years ago and be thinking hhmmmmm vegans seem to like avocado A LOT so let’s give this stuff a go!! Yes there are thousands of guacamole recipes so I thought I would post my own version :O) Or maybe you are not vegan and just like guacamole.
I tried googling but they all asked for lemons or limes which I didn’t have but I did have satsumas which I think are a more common thing for people to have in their fridge or fruit bowl. For an impulsive guacamole making session like I had, satsumas worked well. Although I do usually have lemons lying around just not on this occasion.
So here you have it my take on the guacamole.
1 serving (just double or triple or quadruple based on how many people it’s for)
You will need:
- 1 large avocado
- 6 on the vine cherry toms (or any cherry toms)
- 1 clove of garlic (or don’t believe me and use 3)
- tbsp of orange juice (or squeeze a satsuma into your hand like I did)
- smoked salt (lidl) or any salt – about a tsp
- pepper (go mad)
- tsp paprika
- teeny tiny chopped up red onion
- sprinkle of pomegranate
- chilli flakes (dependent on how spicy you like your life)
Mash the avocado with a fork (I like it a little lumpy) then chuck in everything else and mix. And that’s it!! I served mine on a jacket spud with a loads of vegetables and beans but this would be amazing on nachos or toast or even mixed into pasta or anything else guacamole is used for.
