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.Guacamole 1

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.
