Recipe - Delicious Guacamole

With some simple and delicious ingredients, you can make the best guacamole at home in about 5 minutes. It's great with veggies, meat, or obviously chips if you feel so inclined. Also, with the amount of lime juice added, this will keep for a few days with becoming brown.

Guacamole

2 Ripe Avocados
2 Limes
1 Garlic Clove
1 Jalapeno Pepper
1 Small Tomato (a handful of cherry tomatoes)
Salt and Pepper

Scoop out the avocado and very lightly mash them in a bowl. You don't want to mash it too much initially as there is more mixing to come later

Finely dice the garlic, tomato, and jalapeno pepper and add to bowl

Sprinkle with 1 tsp of salt and add black pepper to your liking.

Squeeze in the juice of two limes. It may seem like a lot but I really like the citrus flavour and find it cuts through the rich avocado nicely.

Stir to combine and break up any large pieces of avocado if you'd like a finer texture.

Recipe - Baba Ghanoush

I really love this dip from Paleo Comfort Foods  In fact, it's the recipe I make the most from this book.  It's really perfect for sending to school for veggie dip.  Sometimes I even use it to dip chicken into.  So tasty.

You'll need:

1 large eggplant
2 Tbsp tahini
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp cumin
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
coconut oil for brushing

Preheat your oven to 400*F.




Cut the eggplant in half lengthwise and brush with coconut oil.  Sprinkle with a little bit of salt.  Place the halves on a foil lined baking sheet cut side up.  I made the mistake of placing them cut side down the first time, big mistake.













Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes or until soft and golden brown on top.





Allow the eggplant to cool.  Once cool, scrape out the inside of the eggplant and combine in a blender or food processor with all of the other ingredients except for the olive oil.












Slowly drizzle olive oil into mixture until well combined.
