Method

 

Guacamole

 

WASH avocados before you slice them; they are often sprayed + have travelled far & wide ~ same with lime and all the other ingredients!!!

 

CUT avocados in half, remove the pit and scoop the fruit with a spoon into a bowl. 

 

ADD lime juice to avocados and mash to an almost smooth puree using a potato masher, fork or even the base of a clean cup or ramekin – whatever you have!

 

ADD all the finely diced, sliced, and chopped ingredients and mix well.

 

TASTE adjust salt to your liking. Add more cilantro if you love it!

 

SERVE in a bowl as an app with veg sticks, romaine leaves or tortilla chips.

STORE in a small airtight container in the fridge. The top may go brown due to exposure to oxygen; it is still ok to eat! Using a smaller narrow container reduces surface area at the top; therefore, less of your guacamole will go brown.

LOW FODMAP diet may be irritated by onions and scallions so omit or add in tiny amounts

 

IBS – avocados are soothing for IBS red onions and scallions may or may not be a trigger for you – you know your body best!

 

SWAP LIME for lemon if you don’t have a lime.

 

TOMATOES; can use 4 cherry tomatoes cut in 1/8’s if you don’t have a big tomato, don’t put all the tomato juice in the guacamole.

 

CILANTRO | fresh coriander substitute; celery leaves are a great substitute for those that don’t like cilantro.  You can also use fresh basil, chervil, parsley, french sorrel.

 

SCALLION | Spring onions substitute use chives or garlic chives.
