Fresh from the Molacjete: Arran’s Guacamole

July 20, 2010

Searching for something so easy to make, so healthy, and so delicious you can’t believe it’s not under lock and key?

Here you go: Arran’s guacamole. In 5 minutes, you can have it on the table. He wanted me to make a video to show you how quick it is, but I’m not that adept– yet. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, here is a quick slide show to prove the point and entice you. Chop, chop, and you’re done.

He makes it in a molacajete, a large mortar and pestle dating back several thousand years to Mesoamerica. Its rough stone surface makes smooshing up the avocados a snap, and it makes a truly beautiful serving container, too.

2 ripe avocados
1 tablespoon finely diced red onion
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Sea salt & cumin, to taste
Optional: finely diced tomato, chopped cilantro
