One of my favorite dips, and among the most loved one is the guacamole. With no Mexican influences around, I only discovered it later but I can’t have enough ever since. It is one of the easiest dishes to do, so in this case of guacamole I refuse to buy it ready-made. Plus it never seems to taste just as great.
Avocados are such versatile fruit. They can be used in savory or sweet dishes, mashed or sliced, and every time bring with them new culinary delights.
Preparing a Spanish tapas-like dinner last night (Gazpacho included), I decided guacamole will have to be on the menu. I know many of my friends use personalized versions of making guacamole, so I will use mine.
3 very ripe avocados
3 garlic cloves
1 lemon (juice only)
1tbsp sour cream
1tbsp olive oil
Instructions for use: mash it all together. There is rarely other cooking simpler than this. Depending on tastes, likes and dislikes, one can add chillies, coriander, or other herbs and spices. I prefer my guacamole quite lemony so all I add is usually just a little bit of extra lemon (or lime) juice.
I wonder if by the ingredients used I could qualify this recipe for the Weekend Herb Blogging over at Kalyn’s Kitchen as well? 🙂
