Guacamole with Radish Chips
Going to a party and not sure what to bring? Try this simple guacamole recipe. I brought this to a family BBQ last weekend and even had the kids loving it with the radish ‘chips’. I love getting non-paleo people on board with healthy and tasty options. Besides the awesome crunch and slightly spicy taste found in radishes, they are also a great source of Vitamin C. The best part of this recipe – there’s no cooking!
Makes 4-6 servings
2 bunches of radishes
4 ripe avocados
1 medium red onion (finely chopped)
1 medium ripe tomato (diced)
1 jalapeno pepper (optional)
4 tablespoon cilantro (finely chopped)
2 small limes
salt and pepper
For the radish chips – cut the radish bulbs from their green stalks. Rinse the bulbs under water and scrub off any dirt/debris. Then slice the radishes thinly (but not too thin because you want them strong enough to dip with). Set aside.
For the guacamole – cut the avocados in half and remove the seeds. Scoop out the avocado and put in a medium sized bowl. Then juice 2 small limes directly on the avocados so they stay green and don’t brown quickly. Mash the avocado using a fork until the consistency you desire. Add the chopped red onions, jalapeno, cilantro, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly with your fork. Add the diced tomatoes at the very end and mix one last time. All done!
Best served immediately with your radish chips. Enjoy!
