2 ripe avocados
2 fresh garlic cloves, chopped or 1/2 Tablespoon of minced garlic
1 small tomato, chopped (~1/4 to 1/2 cup)
1/2 small onion, chopped (~1/4 to 1/2 cup)
1/2 fresh lime or tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
Salt and Pepper to taste (I use about 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 of pepper)
- Scoop out avocado into a bowl.
- Add the rest of the ingredients.
- Mash everything together with a fork.
- Serve with tortilla chips or fresh vegetables.
|Slice the avocado all around the center, having your knife gently against the seed of the fruit.|
|Carefully and gently, puncture the seed with the blade.|
|Twist knife and remove the seed.|
|With a smaller knife, run the knife along the flesh, without puncturing the skin.|
|Using a spoon, scoop out the fruit.|
|Chop onions. Slice the onions, leaving a half-inch of the end in tact.|
|Then dice perpendicular to your original cuts. Put aside.|
|Depending on your preference, run the knife through the cilantro as many times as you'd like. I like my cilantro a bit minced because I'm scared of getting a huge piece of cilantro in my teeth.|
|Add chopped tomatoes. I had leftover chopped tomatoes in tupperware that I just added.|
|Add lime juice and cilantro.|
|Add fresh or minced garlic.|
|Garnish with a cilantro leaf.|
|Now, lets prevent your freshly made guac from turning brown. In a tupperware container, add your guacamole. I used a small glass Pyrex container.|
|Make sure to flatten out the guacamole with spoon so that no air is trapped inside.|
|Cut out some cling wrap and gently lay directly over the guacamole so that the plastic is touching the guacamole.|
|Press the sides of the cling wrap even up to the sides of the bowl.|
|Make sure no air is in contact with the guacamole.|
|Add lid and refrigerate. Oxygen is what turns the avocado brown. So throw those seeds away!|
|Use the other half of your lime for some sparkling water.|
|A perfect healthy snack for those going paleo...|
