Home-Made Guacamole
A fresh and zesty side that goes with just about anything!


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • A pinch of sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon or lime juice
  • ½ to 1 ripe tomato, seeds and pulp removed, diced
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic, minced
  • 1 to 2 red chillies, diced (optional)
  • ½ cup of red onion, diced (optional)
  • To serve: carrot, celery, capsicum sticks or other crudités


  • Halve avocadoes and remove the seeds.
  • Scoop avocado flesh from the skin using a spoon and place into a bowl.
  • Using a fork, roughly mash the avocado flesh leaving a few chunks for texture.
  • Sprinkle with salt, pepper and add the lemon/lime juice, which prevents the avocado from turning brown.
  • Add chopped tomato, coriander, garlic, chillies and onion (if using), and mix well.
  • Cover and refrigerate to allow flavours to blend until ready to serve.
  • Serve with a selection of crudités.
