Homemade gluten free chunky guacamole

Homemade gluten free chunky guacamole

After reading a post of my friend Hannah’s blog about chunky guacamole, I realised I had never attempted making what is one my FAVOURITE dips, so I set off on my mission.

Guacamole is a wonder food – full of good fats and skin-friendly vitamin E, as well as tasting absolutely fantastic and being gluten free.

So I decided to follow in Hannah’s footsteps and create a yummy treat to go with my lunch…..and it’s so quick and simple to make!

Chunky gluten free guacamole

Three ripe avocados

One small red onion

One tomato

Half a lemon

  1. Cut the avocados in half, remove the stones and scoop the flesh into a bowl, in rough chunks
  2. Juice the half a lemon over the avocado to stop it going brown (TIP: Keep the stones and put them in the bowl with the guacamole when it is done, this will stop it going brown!)
  3. Finely dice the red onion and add to the avocado
  4. Scoop the flesh from the tomato and add to the onion and avocado. You could finely dice the whole thing but I prefer not to have chunks of tomato in mine.
  5. Roughly mash with a fork until you have a chunky mix (as pictured above and below)
  6. Keep in the fridge and try to eat within a day or two, before it starts to discolour!

I had my guacamole with chicken (roasted with a coating of chilli, tumeric and paprika) and steamed asparagus and kale with some leftover pasta bake from the night before – yum!
