Ingredients

  • 1/4 red onion, peeled and finely chopped (can use white or brown)
  • 1 small Garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp Coriander (cilantro), finely chopped
  • 2 Avocado (ripe)
  • 1/2 Lime, juice of

Instructions

  • Add onion, garlic and coriander (cilantro) to a mortar and use a pestle to grind to a paste. If you do not own a pestle and mortar, place the onion, garlic and coriander on a chopping board and mash with a fork. *SEE NOTE 1
  • Add the avocado to a small mixing bowl and mash to desired consistency. *SEE NOTE 2
  • Add the coriander/onion paste and the lime juice to the avocado and mix through. SEE NOTE 3
  • Taste and season / adjust (lime juice etc) to suit. SEE NOTE 4

Notes

  1. Mashing into a paste improves both the flavour and texture. It is great for kids who do not like to find chunks of raw onion. If serving older children/adults, adding a pinch of salt will help to mash/grind into a paste easier. 
  2. You can mash chunky or smooth depending on your family preferences. I usually leave some texture to the avocado. 
  3. We like 1/2 a lime worth of juice but this is personal preference. Start with 1/4 lime, to begin with, and add more if you like. Use fresh juice, bottled does not give the same taste. 
  4. Now my kids are older I do add a little salt to bring out the flavour. Do not add salt if making for a baby/ young child.
