Summertime Guacamole!

One of my favourite snacks during the summer is guacamole. It’s no secret that I absolutely love avocado. I eat it all the time, usually with a little rice vinegar. You can’t beat the creamy texture of avocado! Occasionally, however, I make guacamole.

I found a great recipe for guacamole online many years ago, before I left home for university, but I’ve never been able to find it. So, I’ve had to re-create the recipe from memory, and I think it tastes just as good, if not better, than I remember it!

Summertime Guacamole


2 ripe avocado, mashed
1 tomato
the juice from 1 lime, freshly squeezed.
1/8 cup finely chopped red onion
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander (you can also use fresh cilantro)
salt and pepper, to taste


Very simply, add all the ingredients to a bowl and stir together!

I like to use half the lime first, adding the juice from the other half at the end after tasting it.


I also like using my mortar and pestle for the cumin – I find when you grind it yourself, it has a more distinct flavour. Plus, you know, it’s just darn fun to use!


Here’s what it looks like with all the ingredients added, without having stirred it altogether.IMG_4756Yummy! That’ll be all gone in one evening…IMG_4757 Do you like guacamole? How does your recipe differ from mine?
