3 recipes to give your boring guac’ a make-over
No idea who came up with it, but apparently the 16th of September is Guacamole day!! Who doesn’t love a good excuse to indulge in some extra guac’?
Guac on everything! This Mexican style Bolognese pasta has guacamole on top!
Avocados are great for you – in moderation
Avocados are incredibly good for your body. Avocados are loaded with fiber, have lots of good fats, and folate. They also contain more potassium than your average banana.
Did you know that the recommended serving size is only about 1/3 of an avocado? With still about 80 calories per serving size they pack quite a calorific punch. It’s really easy to go overboard…
3 guacamole recipes with a twist
Mexican pasta with guac’
This recipe is a quick and easy weeknight dinner. Tex-mex pasta with browned beef, onion, garlic, tomato, chili-sauce, and guac on top. Ideal for those days when you really feel like cooking. You can dish it up in less than 30 minutes.
Chunky guacamole with beans
If you want to add some extra creaminess and flavor to your guac’ add some black beans. They are not only high in fiber and potassium, but also add texture. Garlic, chili and some tomatoes add extra color and body.
