GUACAMOLE

by in Recipes June 18, 2018

This is one of my favourite breakfasts  –  grilled salmon with Guacamole on toasted Vegan Oat Bread.

The salmon is rich in anti inflammatory Omega 3 Essential Fats, and is also an excellent source of Vitamin D, Protein and Vitamin B12.

Avocado is rich in monounsaturated fats (like those in Extra Virgin Olive Oil).  Oleic Acid and Alpha-Linolenic Acid, the primary fatty acids in Avocado, have been shown in research to be beneficial for a healthy heart.   By the way, adding Avocado to salads, also enhances the absorption of carotenoid phytonutrients from the vegetables.  Carotenoid phytonutrients are a group of nutrients found in plant foods which come under the umbrella term of “Vitamin A”.  As Vitamin A is a fat soluable vitamin, it requires the right amount and combination of dietary fat for optimal absorption.  Avocado gives the perfect combination!!!

This is a delicious and very satisfying breakfast and will keep you going all morning.

My husband makes delicious Guacamole, and here is his recipe.

  • 2 Avocados  –  skinned and chopped into smallish pieces
  • Juice of 1 Lime
  • Bunch Corriander – chopped
  • 1 clove of Minced Garlic
  • 1/2 Red Onion finely diced
  • Pinch Chipotle Chilli Flakes (or Normal Chilli Flakes)
  • Salt and Ground Black Pepper

These amounts are approximate  –  it is really up to personal taste how much garlic, chilli etc you put in.

Add everything together and with a fork mix it all around to incorporate the ingredients.  You don’t want it to turn to mush, ideally you want some smooth bits together with some chunky bits.

Guacamole is so versatile, it makes a nutritious and delicious addition to lots of meals!
