Guacamole

Summer is around the corner and guacamole is a really good accompaniment to wraps, burgers, salads, nachos and potato chips. Also, avocados contain the fats that are good for us so guilt free indulgence all the way!  I’m not a big fan of the store bought stuff so I decided to make it fresh at home. Try it out, let me know what you think..

What we need:
4 avocados
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp ginger juice (optional)
1 tsp salt (or according to taste)
1/2 tsp black pepper
handful of chopped coriander

How we do:

  • Carefully slice each avocado in half, lengthwise and remove the inner stone. Spoon out the flesh into a bowl.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and mash well until creamy but a but chunky.
  • Balle Balle! You’re done! How simple was that?
