Guacamole is a sauce of Mexican origin whose use dates back to Aztec times, a food with a high energy content rich in healthy fats.
- 3 ripe avocados
- 1-2 cloves of garlic
- 1 lemon
- 1 tablespoon of paprika
- 2 tablespoons chives (optional)
- 1 tablespoon of Fonte Torre extra virgin olive oil
Peel the avocados and remove the stone, then collect the pulp in a bowl and mash it with a fork in order to obtain a creamy consistency (the riper the avocados, the softer the cream will be).
At this point immediately add the lemon juice and the extra virgin olive oil which, in addition to flavoring the avocados, prevents them from blackening; add the crushed garlic, the paprika, the finely chopped chives and adjust the salt according to your tastes. Mix everything well and serve the sauce with raw vegetables or spread on slices of bread.
Guacamole should be eaten fresh, or within the day.
Guacamole is a Mexican specialty; in fact the avocado is a fruit native to Central America and has only been cultivated for some years in some areas of Italy and in Provence. It is consumed raw and preferably in moderation because it contains many fats which, however, are classified among the beneficial ones.
