Avocados have turned into a sort-of comfort food for me. They don’t warm me up on a cold night like a hearty chill or stew, but they comfort me all the same. Their creamy texture and buttery taste just begs me to take a bite. Add some lime juice, green onions, garlic and cilantro and I’m in heaven.
The simplicity of this combination is another reason it’s high on my list of favourites. On pulled pork tacos, shrimp lettuce wraps, or just with some multi-grain tortilla chips, guacamole is one of my go to sides any day of the week.
- 2 ripe Haas avocados
- ½ a lime, juiced
- 1 garlic clove, grated with a microplane
- 2 green onions, finely chopped, whites and light green portion only
- 1 tablespoon cilantro, finely chopped
- Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Cut each avocado in half, remove pit. Scoop out the meat of each avocado into a medium bowl. Add lime juice, garlic, green onion and cilantro. Mash with a fork or potato masher until smooth. Season the guacamole with salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning.
