Guacamole

Guacamole

While you don’t strictly make this on the Big Green Egg, it is an accompaniment to many dishes and one of my favourite sides to add.

I make my own guacamole as I just find anything shop bought so lifeless and flat. Guacamole should be fresh and zingy and should be eaten straight away.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium ripe avocados
  • 1.5 tbsp chopped onion
  • 1 tomato (I use one from a tin of tomatoes as I then use the rest for salsa)
  • 1/2 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 tsp chilli sauce
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 tbsp light olive oil (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp maldon salt
  • Ground black pepper to taste

Equipment

  • Food processor – I use a Thermamix

Method

  1. Halve the avocados, remove the stone and scoop out the flesh into your food processor.
  2. Add all the other ingredients.
  3. Blend but keep it lumpy, not to a smooth paste. 
  4. Set aside in a bowl and cover with cling film until you’re ready to eat it.

Notes

Because this is fresh keep it covered. It’ll only last a few hours before the avocado will start to brown. While it doesn’t look as pretty it’s still edible but I prefer to finish it off while it is green and super zingy.
