Quick Cashew-Guacamole

A good guacamole is always appreciated. It should be creamy yet refreshing, slightly spicy and have the full, rich taste of ripe avocados. With pita bread. That’s just perfect, I always thought. But what about adding some crunchy bits? I experimented with adding roasted cashew nuts to the guaca and it turned out to be utterly AMAZING. No matter if you try this recipe or your regular one, make sure to try adding some nuts to it!

Preparation time: 15 minutes
For one bowl (for 4 people as a dip)

Creamy Cashew Guacamole

Stuff you need:

  • 3 super ripe avocados
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 handful of cashew nuts
  • Ground cumin
  • 1 green chili
  • Fresh cilantro
  •  1tbs olive oil
  • Salt, pepper

Get Started

Mildly roast the nuts in a pan without oil. Take care: they will turn from being pale to brown in seconds, so better watch them. After that, cut your avocados, spoon up the flesh and immediately drizzle it with lemon juice to prevent oxidation. Put it in a bowl and mash it with a fork or your hands to the texture you prefer. Then, finely chop the onion, chili and cilantro and add it, together with a dash of cumin, salt, pepper and the olive oil. Then, slighly crush the nuts. Stir two thirds in and place one third on top. Serve with pita or tortilla chips. Goes well with hummus or baba ganoush.
