Method

  1. Use a large knife to pulverise 1 large ripe tomato to a pulp on a board, then tip into a bowl.

  2. Halve and stone the 3 avocados (saving a stone) and use a spoon to scoop out the flesh into the bowl with the tomato.

  3. Tip the juice of 1 large lime, a handful of roughly chopped coriander, 1 finely chopped small red onion and 1 deseeded and finely chopped red or green chilli into the bowl, then season with salt and pepper.

  4. Use a whisk to roughly mash everything together. If not serving straight away, sit a stone in the guacamole (this helps to stop it going brown), cover with cling film and chill until needed.

So fresh and delicious. Great with tortilla chips and crudites. It was so flavoursome that I forgot that there was no garlic in it!

Made the guacomole to go with the chilli bean recipe as suggested. If I was to make it again I would use less lime juice which I thought prevaded a litlle too strongly. Okay but not amazing.
