Quick and easy to make and far nicer than store bought Guacamole.
small red onion
– 1 red chilli
handful of coriander leaves
juice of 1 lime or ½ lemon
generous pinch of salt
optional, to garnish
Finely chop the onion. Deseed the chilli if desired and finely chop. Chop the coriander leaves.
Place all the ingredients except the avocado and pistachios in a pestle and mortar and pound for a few seconds to blend.
Cut the avocado in half and discard the stone. Scoop out the flesh and add to the pestle and mortar.
Pound again until all the ingredients are well blended and you have a coarse puree.
Transfer to a serving dish or serve in the mortar and sprinkle with pistachio nuts, if desired.
Not suitable for freezing
