Rebecca's Guacamole

  • 2 avocado's (rich in oleic fat, a healthy monounsaturated fat, vitamin A and Vitamin k)
  • 1/4 chopped red onion
  • 2 chopped cloves garlic
  • 1/4 bunch fresh cilanto, finely chopped
  • salt
  • cumin powder or seeds
  • a little chopped tomato
  • lime juice
  • a little olive oil
  1. add all ingredients together and mash with fork, so quick and simple makes a great light lunch or snack. Or of course good as a starter or for parties.
We had this for lunch, Jasmine ate a little mashed avocado with a cheese sandwich. Avocado makes a great first baby food, as when ripe it mash's very well and its rich in vitamins and healthy fats.

My mother in law loved this as she's on a very strict diet for religious reasons (Brahma kumari) and doesn't eat in restaurants. We made a little spice blend with salt, chili powder (she's Indian!), cumin powder and coriander powder (another name for cilantro!), then we simply mashed with a ripe avocado in the hotel room!

Luckily for me I have no dietary restrictions as a Christian, and little Jasmine is free to try anything she wants.

and lastly this was what my hubby made for breakfast it looked so good and colorful I just had to take a picture, fellow foodies you know how that goes!

Have a wonderful weekend love ya
