Finally! Today is
the day I am sharing with you my "awesome" Salvadorian guacamole recipe, otherwise know as Avocado and Egg Salad. Actually, let me correct that previous statement, this is not my recipe but my my mother's guacamole recipe. Let me tell you, there are not many things that I feel comfortable cooking for others without second guessing myself but this my friends, I can do with my eyes closed and without any doubt that it will always be a hit. Please do not hold my lack of humility against me, but I will shamelessly brag about my mother because, like most mothers, she's
a great cook. She does not have a wide range of recipes but the ones she masters are divine and unique. If you follow me on
or have read
, you already know that I have a passionate romance with citrus, especially lemon. If I could, I would put lemon even on my cereal but other than that, I pretty much put lemon on
Enough about me, here's the recipe.
Avocado and Egg Salad (Gluten-free and Vegetarian)
Makes 4 servings and will fill a big bowl (enough for 2 people to munch during the duration of a full movie)
4 ripe avocados (if you have Caribbean avocados 2 will be enough)
1 entire medium size onion
2 hard boiled eggs (1 hard boiled egg per 1 big avocado)
1/2 bunch of fresh cilantro
The juice of 2 lemons (or the juice of 4 limes)
Salt and Pepper
A Potato masher or a Pilon (
Vegan option: Either replace the egg for tofu, or consider putting green, sour mango finely chopped. If you choose to only put avocado you may not get as much of a "clumpy" consistency.
- Dice the avocados and eggs and put in a large bowl.
- Finely chop onion and cilantro leaves and put in the same bowl where you put the avocados and onion.
- Add the lemon juice and start mashing, turning the bowl as you go and mixing it well.
- After you reach the desired consistency
(there should not be any complete pieces of the avocados or egg but it should still be clumpy), you will notice that both the cilantro and the onion will blend with the rest and by mashing it all together it will give it a great flavor.
- Add salt and pepper to your taste.
And there you have it!
Here are some more citrus pictures I took just because it's pretty. enjoy!
