guacamole – and sardines in a tin

Snacks

Homemade Guacamole is an alltime favourite for summer days. It is super easy and fast to make, we serve it as a light lunch, as snack or as a dip for a barbecue.  Yesterday we spread our guacamole on slices of rye bread and topped it with sardines.

The avocado contains all 6 human nutritional needs in abundance: water, fat (essential natural fats), protein, natural sugar, vitamins (B,C, E and K) and minerals (potassium, calcium, iron and phosphorus). Rich in monounsaturated fatty acids the avocado helps to reduce levels of “bad” cholesterol in the blood. ¬†So don’t be fooled by avocado’s bad reputation as a high-fat food, actually it provides us with unique health benefits.

Guacamole
serves 2

2 ripe avocados
1 tomato, chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
a few dashes of Tabasco
sea salt (or Himalayan salt) and grated black pepper
the juice of a freshly squeezed lemon

I don’t use the blender to combine the ingredients, but smash the avocados with a fork, add the remaining ingredients and season with pepper and salt.
