Summertime Guacamole (Gluten-Free)


Guacamole from naturally gluten-free avocados is a summertime treat!

Okay, so pretty much all guacamole is naturally gluten free. Still, guacamole is one of the summertime treats that fuel California, and many other lucky places. High in protein, vitamins, and beneficial oils, and blessed with a wonderful rich flavor, avocados are one of earth's true superfoods. This guacamole will keep folks coming back for more.

Ingredients:
3-4 ripe avocados
1 lemon or 2 limes
¼ cup cilantro, chopped
¼ cup sweet onion, chopped (optional)

When it comes to guacamole ingredients, less is more. I generally only use avocado and lime or lemon in my guacamole.

I never put tomatoes in guacamole, as the acidity works against the avocado. The same is true of onion. I don't use it in guacamole. I simply serve salsa that includes onion and tomato along side the guacamole, so guests can mix as they like. That way they may mix tomatoes and onions in the salsa with the guacamole, or simply savor the rich, full taste of the avocado.

Directions:
Slice avocados in half and spoon flesh into a large bowl. Discard pits and skin. Mash with a fork and fold, or, for chunkier guacamole, simply run a thin bread knife through the avocados in multiple directions and fold gently until desired mixture is reached.

Serve with chips, tomato salsa, and/or green chili salsa.

Tip: Mix guacamole with Herdez salsa verde and cilantro and serve with any white fish. Yum!

I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be e...

Hi and Welcome to the Forum. I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya. People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean tha...

If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer ...

Holy cow! You people are all angels! I have been suffering unbearably with these hot, itchy, and painful bumps on my scalp for a year now. Two doctors had no idea what it was, so I was sent to see a "dermatologist." To my utter shock, he told me I WAS DIRTY! HE TOLD ME TO WASH MY HAIR EVERY DAY w...
