Side Dish – recipes
2-3 ripe avocados
1/2 lime, juiced
2 -3 green onions, chopped
1-2 Tbsp cilantro (coriander), chopped
1 tsp spirulina powder
1/2 medium tomato, diced
Sea salt to taste
Jalapeno or spicy red pepper – if desired
Halve the avocados and remove the pits (keep 1 or 2 pits on the side). In a mortar, combine cilantro, salt, and lime juice, then grind them together.
Add the avocados and spirulina powder to the mortar, and mix everything well. If you prefer it spicy, add hot pepper to taste, along with tomato and chopped green onions.
Once your guacamole mix is ready, transfer it to a container and place one or two avocado pits in it (to help prevent oxidation and keep it from turning black). Enjoy your delicious and nutritious guacamole!
To maintain freshness and prevent oxidation, cover the guacamole with plastic wrap before refrigerating it. Additionally, you can place a few onion slices on top of the guacamole to further help prevent it from turning black.
