Guacamole is a sauce of Mexican origin whose use dates back to the times of the Aztecs, 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 of 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 to obtain a creamy consistency (the more ripe the avocados, the softer the cream will be).
At this point, immediately add the lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil which, in addition to flavoring the avocados, prevents them from blackening; add the crushed garlic, paprika, finely chopped chives and adjust the salt to your taste. Mix everything well and serve the sauce with raw vegetables or spread on slices of bread.
Guacamole should be eaten fresh, or in 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 eaten raw and preferably in moderation because it contains many fats which, however, are classified among the beneficial ones.
