After a few months' hiatus, I'm finally back! God, I've missed blogging, but the truth is, I was so busy I didn't even have time or energy to try out new recipes! However, things are slowing down a little bit, and while I won't be able to post every day, I hope there won't be any breaks as long as this one either.
For a start, I'll leave you with this extremely simple but gorgeous guacamole recipe. Here in Europe, guacamole is not the staple food it is in America, so I first tried it just a few years ago. I must admit that I didn't like it at all! To be honest, up until this point, I rarely if ever bought avocados... I know they're supposed to be very healthy, but I just couldn't for the life of me find a good use for them. So it's a mystery really, what drove me to buy some at the supermarket the other day. I guess I just loved how ripe and perfect they looked. So, when I got home, not knowing what else to do, I decided to give guacamole another try. I found a very simple recipe over at Pinch My Salt, and it worked beautifully. the only change I made was to add a bit of garlic. I'm happy to report I ate the whole batch alone, in one afternoon! So I guess I'm converted now!
2 ripe avocados
1 lime, juiced
1 chili, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 onion, finely chopped
2-3 tbsp chopped coriander (cilantro) leaves
Halve the avocados, remove the seed and scoop out the flesh from the skin. Mash the avocados with a fork until you reach your preferred consistency. Add the lime juice, and stir in the rest of the ingredients.
