If I was living my best life, I’d eat avocado every day, preferably in the form of guacamole. Today’s looking good ’cause I’m staring at a beautiful bowl of guacamole. It’s better than basic because it’s topped with radish, toasted sesame and sumac. Life it good.
Better than Basic Guacamole Recipe (a.k.a. my current favorite guac)
2 medium ripe Hass avocados
2 tablespoons chopped onion, rinsed with cold water and drained
1 tablespoon finely chopped jalapeno or serrano chile peppers, seeded
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
Fresh radishes, cut in matchstick pieces
Lightly toasted sesame seeds
Cut each avocado in half; remove and discard pits. Spoon flesh of avocados into medium bowl. Coarsely mash avocado with fork or potato masher. Stir in onion, jalapeno pepper, cilantro, lime juice and salt. Top with radishes, sesame seeds and a sprinkling of sumac. Serve with fresh veggies, crackers or tortilla chips.
Makes 4 servings
Tip: Make this guacamole even better by drizzling with extra virgin olive oil.
