Guacamole is my favourite condiment and, from a nutritional point of view, is one of the best foods around. Aside from being quick and easy to make, it tastes great and is bursting with vitamins, fibre and healthy fats. Freshly made guacamole is so much more healthy than the shop-bought variety so take a couple of minutes to prepare your own, whenever possible. There are many different recipes for guacamole, but here is the one I enjoy most.
- 2 ripe avocados
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- Juice of 1 lime
- 1/4 cup of red onion, finely chopped
- 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
- 1 ripe roma tomato, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of sea salt
- A Handful of cilantro and parsley, finely chopped
- Mash the avocado into a pulp
- Mix the rest of the ingredients in with the avocado
- Blend in a food processor until smooth
