Easy Guacamole

We eat this with pretty much everything. It’ll keep for a couple for days in the fridge, so it’s easy to make extra so you can use it for 2 meals.

2 ripe avocados
Juice of 1/2 lime
1/2 a red onion
Small handful of fresh coriander
Dash of Tobasco

Cut the avocados in half, remove the stones (did you know you can grow these? http://www.thehungrymouse.com/2009/09/09/how-to-grow-an-avocado-tree-from-an-avocado-pit/) and scoop out the flesh. Roughly chop the onion.
Add all ingredients to a small jug or container and whizz up with your trusty stick blender. Taste, and add more salt/Tobasco as required.
Don’t have a stick blender? A regular one or a food processor will be totally fine, I just use the stick one as its easier to clean. If you don’t have either, try a potato masher and make sure your onions are cut up small and your coriander is chopped finely. Or buy a stick blender: I’ve just upgraded because I wanted a few more attachments, but before that I had one that cost about £9 and lasted nearly 10 years. In fact, the recent upgrade means I have the old one going spare. No crazy attachments but it’s still going strong. First London person to comment below gets a free stick blender!



  1. Thank you so much for this recipie – I have just started eating Paleo and am so glad to find a site with UK measurements on (have no idea what American “cups” equal!) All the meal suggestions look fantastic and I’m looking forward to becoming a primal chef.

    I’m also in London – if the offer of the stick blender still stands, it would be very helpful as I broke mine making some soup a few months ago (no, I don’t know how either)

    1. Hi Alice – glad you like the site! I do absolutely have the stick blender still on offer. I’ll drop you an email about it!
