Garlic Guacamole

I was a bit reluctant before posting this recipe, as everyone knows how to make guacamole, right? We always make a homemade guacamole, as it’s fairly easy and quick process. It’s one of this foods/spreads like humus or tapenade, which I never buy ready made, as homemade versions are much fresher and tasteful options, plus you know exactly what’s inside.

Provided you have a blender and ripe avocados it takes only minutes to prepare. Even without a blender, you can mashed your guacamole with a fork, it will have just a bit more chunkier texture. Over the time, based on a traditional guacamole recipe, and just by throwing to the blender what we had available at hand, we finally developed this one to our liking. Once we have avocados at home then the rest of ingredients just comes along. So I often used spring onions or garlic instead of onions, parsley instead of cilantro, lemon instead of lime (we always have lemons in the fridge), and so on.  Also, we discovered we didn’t like chili in our guacamole, as well as tomatoes (they make it more watery).

In the end we decided just to write down and measure our preferred ingredients to unify them in a ‘perfect’ guacamole recipe. So Vegeregis style guacamole is made with a garlic (as I think it’s just so tasty and gives this creamy factor to it), with quite a lot of herbs and lemon (we never have limes at home).  You will end up with a pretty garlicky – lemony – herbal flavor guacamole. But don’t get to strict with the exact quantities and experiment a bit to make a ‘polished’ version up to your personal preferences. Hope you will enjoy it!
