Oh gosh, the first time I tried avocado! lol. We did not have avocados back in Russia when I was growing up so I was sure the fruit was either not ripe or went bad when I tasted it for the first time, lol. I did not touch it again for years afterwards! Silly me. Now, however, avocado is my middle name, lol. But the first steps I took towards loving avocado were with Guacamole. Who doesn’t love a good old Guac?! That’s how I introduced my kids to avocado (at least one of them, still working on the other one) Here is how we make it at home. My 11 year old makes it himself for lunchbox he takes to school with crackers.
- 1 big avocado
- 1 small red onion
- 1 small tomato
- 1 lime (juice)
- handfull coriander (cilantro)
- sea salt, pepper
- 1/4tsp garlic powder
- 1/4tsp chili flakes or fresh chili (optional) Method
Dice the onion finely, scoop the avocado flesh into a bowl with diced onions and mash it slightly. Slice the tomato into 3 or 4 slices, discarding the seeds and the juice. Dice up the tomato and add it to the bowl with avocado. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix it well with the fork. Make it as smooth or as chunky as you like.
