#LetsLunch goes green...avocado!!! by Lisa Goldberg

#LetsLunch is going GREEN this month. Green, to me, shouts cucumber and lettuce, granny smith apples and limes, but my all time favourite green food is WITHOUT A DOUBT…the AVOCADO. I think it is the most sublime fruit that there is! So I’m going to share the simplest, easiest and greenest recipe I have. I know anyone who has ever (or not) set food it the kitchen has their own version of an avocado dip, and probably thinks ‘why do we need another?’

Well, let me tell you, I used to think the same…until I tried this! The recipe comes from  Natanya (my MondayMorningCookingClub sister) and it has now become a staple part of my Friday night dinner. I serve it for starters alongside my ‘egg & onion’, chopped liver and freshly baked challahs.

 

Natanya’s soon-to-be-world-famous avocado dip (guacamole)

3 avocados, peeled and mashed

1/4 red onion, very finely chopped

2 Roma tomatoes seeded and chopped

really good splash of Tabasco (or hot chilli sauce)

juice of 1 lemon, or to taste

lots of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

 

Mix everything together and taste for tabasco, salt , pepper and lemon

Makes about 2 cups

Serve with cut up veggies, corn chips or whatever you like as a starter, or as a side dish at a bbq...or just on its own with a loaf of fresh bread...and I promise that once you start, you won't be able to stop eating it...
