 Gazpacho is a Spanish classic, best made when juicy tomatoes are in season.

Guac. So simple. Avocados that are firm but with that slight give, some chopped tomatoes, lemon juice, salt and pepper and you're set. Too easy to buy premade. I go heavy on lemon juice.


  • 2 avocados, firm but with that slight give
  • Juice from ½ a lemon
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • Salt
  • Pepper


Cut the avocado, remove the pit (reserve to replace if you buy into it preventing browning). Gently mash the avocado keeping some of the chunks for texture. Add lemon juice, tomatoes, salt, pepper and mix. Eat.

Guacamole Cooking Tip
