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'm just beginning my research into this I have been eating gf for at least 2 years with a few missteps. But my Prometheus Celiac Genetics blood test came back extremely HIGH. So I have work to do . Guess the vit/min I take will have to be checked more closely.

Hi Lex, First step would be to eliminate celiac. Gluten is well established as the cause of celiac. If you eliminate celiac but still react to gluten foods then it becomes trickier. Non Celiac Gluten sensitivity NCGS is still not universally accepted and there are differing views on whe...
