My little honey bunny, today I am offering you a nice recipe that will maybe seem obvious but which is 100% homemade, without using those pre-packed blend spices. It’s my recipe of homemade guacamole. It’s easy, fast (kind of), vegan, gluten-free and it is going to make everyone happy (believe me!)
For a nice big bowl :
- 2 avocados (and if you don’t know how to choose an avocado, you can read below*)
- 1 onion
- 1 tomato
- 1 bunch of cilantro
- 1 lemon or lime (or some lemon juice)
- 1 red hot pepper
- Salt and pepper
First of all, chop finely the onion, tomato, chili and cilantro and put everything on the side.
Then open the avocado, take the stone out (you can also grow it, it’s kind of fun) (said the girl who
is really bored loves simple things!) and mash the flesh with a fork. Add a pinch of lemon juice in it.
Mix everything, add some more lemon juice, salt and pepper. If you need to keep the guac for a few hours before eating, put a plastic sheet on it.
*To choose an avocado, nothing simpler, just follow the advice of the pro huge amateur I am.
- The colour of the thing : it must be dark green and regular (without lighter spots)
- The flesh consistency: it must go a little bit deeper when you press it. Firm but not hard.
- How the flesh looks: under the little stem (the little brown thing you can remove on the avocado) (I asked the Cher-et-Tendre about the name of it. “The tiny butt” he answered. Thanks.)
As I was saying, the flesh under the thing must be green. It it’s brown of, worst, black: run.
- The fruit can sometimes show some scars or irregularities in the shape (round, pear shaped): it does not matter.
And if you can find only light green and hard ones, don’t freak out: just put them with apples in a paper or plastic bag for 1 or 2 days. The apple will release some kind of gas, which will get the avocados ripe. And if you were planning to eat guac the exact same day? You still can order some of it on Seamless.
