Avocado yuminess

Hello again!

Alright, so it’s been a week, and no post… sadness abound, I know…. Anyway, what would you say, if I told you I have 3 fabulous recipes for you… AND what would you say, if I said they could be tailored as vegetarian, vegan, or non-vegetarian? What if I added that you could probably make this stuff using whatever was in your fridge? Alright, now stop cheering (which I so know that you are), and sit down. Pay attention; this is important…

Recipe 1: Guacamole

Guac is a pretty simple recipe that all types of eaters like… it is easy to make, doesn’t have too many ingredients and it tastes pretty damn good with anything… This recipe will probably serve 2 as a snack or light meal (stay tuned for ideas on how to use it). This recipe is also, vegetarian, vegan AND raw! Eeep, sounds fun! Can you feel my bouncy excitement???

Ingredients

2 avocados

1/2 lemon – get a teaspoon of rind, and the juice – that’s what you’ll be using

1 medium tomato, chopped

1 medium onion, chopped

Salt to taste

Directions

Chop the onion and tomato however large you like… they can be chunks, fine, whatever… If you’re like me, and onions make you cry, go for the chunky guac. Just as tasty. Now, just a quick note on avocados. You NEED ripe ones. Like seriously, you do… I’m going to reblog two blog entries that I have found on avocados that will help with determining ripeness and showing you how to scoop out the flesh of an avocado. I cannot stress this enough… unripe = yucky guac…

Other than that, use a food processor for all your ingredients. If you are lazy (like me), get a fork and go to town. Once your avocado is to the right consistency, add the other ingredients to the bowl. MIX! I know, so difficult…

So, now, your guacamole is done – that was mind boggling, wasn’t it… But, now, comes the fun part… how do you eat it? Well, use a spoon. Yeah, totally, it tastes fine on its own. Eat with chips… if it’s chunky, use your spoon to scoop it on, or if it’s smooth, dip it. Use it as a spread – amazing in wraps, or if it’s chunky, it can actually make the filling for a wrap…  Have it on toast for breakfast. Throw it into an omelette or on a pizza…

Now, what did I learn from this posting? I learned that you do not spell avocado as avacado…

Enjoy!

Make it and eat it in the same bowl… amazing!
