FBF Friday – Food…

17 Jun

GirlSeeksShoe here.

Summer food is just glorious. Synonymous with a Pimm’s picnic in the park, or a fresh sorbet, and even the music form an ice-cream truck… summer food is easily the nicest way to transition from comfort food in winter to a never-ending stream of barbecues. As a student the food I eat tends to be cheap and quick to make, and in summer this is all the more vital… who wants to be inside cooking, when you could be at the beach eating?! My favourite summer recipe is definitely quick and a picnic essential. Plus, it tastes amazing even though it is super-healthy (the best foods are generally bad for you)…

How to make GUACAMOLE:

You need;

  • 2 large ripe avocados (halved, peeled and remove the stones)
  • The juice of 1 lime or lemon (I prefer lime but it’s up to you)
  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • 1 tablespoon of finely chopped onion
  • 1 large tomato (skinned, deseeded and finely chopped)
  • 1 fresh green chilli (deseeded and finely chopped… remember not to rub your eyes!)
  • 1 tablespoon of coriander leaves finely chopped
  • a pinch of sugar
  • salt and pepper
  1. Put the avocado into the bowl with the lime or lemon juice and mash to make a textured but noy smooth paste.
  2. Stir in the garlic, onion, tomato, chilli, coriander and sugar.
  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper (you can add some extra lime or lemon juice if you want to).

This recipe takes about 10 minutes and serves 3/4. You can eat guacamole with tortillas, use it to make nachos, and even have it as a healthy snack with celery, cucumber or carrots!

So slip on your shades, grab some friends, and enjoy.
