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!

Bacon, yellow grits, tomato, onion and green pepper
An Indian eating grits we live in the South, love it.

Have a wonderful weekend love ya


  1. I LOVE Guacamole!!! Sounds amazing :D

  2. I'm glad that I'm so keen on avocado! Nice and easy guacamole recipe.

    And it's my first time to hear Brahma kumari, sounds interesting to me. They practise very strict yogi diet?

  6. Yum! I love guacamole, too, and this recipe is different than mine, just different enough that I need to try it! I love the flavors added!

  7. A stupid question perhaps but bear with me, I'm English ;)

    What are grits? It looks kind of like scrambled egg, or perhaps some kind of potato?

    I'll have to try guacamole again - only had it once before but I'm not really an avocado fan. Perhaps I'll add a bit more onion and tomato. The cumin sounds nice, one of my favourite spices :)

  8. Wow! A nice and healthy breakfast!

  9. Jamie: thanks
    Louise: no need to so sorry i am also a Brit and didn't know what grits were before living in America, its cornmeal, like a coarse porridge
    Annoco: thanks
