For the freshest, tastiest guacamole you can’t get better than homemade. Featuring lime, fish sauce and chilli for an unbeatable flavour hit, this Spicy Asian Inspired Guacamole Dip is set to spice up your life in the best way possible.
So over the last few weekends our housemate has taken us down to some nearby fresh produce markets (for you Adelaidians, we’re talking about the Torrens Island Markets. 😉 )
We couldn’t believe the fresh produce available, from farm fresh veggies to free range eggs, organic spices, fresh baked breads and everything in between.
And, best bit, it’s literally a five minute drive from home.
How in the world did we not realise how good this is? Everything is so much cheaper and fresher than what’s been available in the supermarkets lately.
We were like kids in a candy store going crazy over each stall.
Surely we must have looked a little odd what with our outbursts of ‘oh my god look at the price of that asparagus!’ and ‘check out these brussels sprouts!’
Cos, yep. That’s how we roll.This is the CREAMIEST lunchtime treat. Where have you been all my life?Click To Tweet
Of course then we found some fresh avocadoes and our day was 100% MADE.
Stacks of veggies tucked under each arm, we brought everything home and jumped straight into the kitchen, whipping up batches of tea, masala chai, and a few frothy coffees for my Wandermum, along with this Spicy Asian-Inspired Guacamole for our friends.
Spicy Asian Inspired Guacamole Dip
We were inspired to make this brilliant 5 minute recipe after Gabi & Nico posted their own guacamole dip over at their blog The Funnelogy Channel. Reading their stories is like seeing the world through their eyes, and we love following their adventures.
They shared a great tip for removing the avocado stone:
“Using the blade of your knife, strike the avocado stone at its centre (watch your fingers!) so that the blade gets stuck in the stone, then twist about 90 degrees and voilà the stone will come out with your knife.”
Voila! Tried and tested and winning at avocado life in general.
Oooh I should probably mention we’ve added a dash of fish sauce to our recipe. This is
optional 100% NOT optional guys! 😛 Not if you want some seriously awesome flavour to your Asian Inspired Guacamole.
Trust us, it is going to be so worth it once it’s sitting there waiting for you to take a bite.
Go on, give it a try, and let us know how you go!
