With the stew sorted, I left producing the dips until closer to the time the guests were arriving, especially as guacamole has a tendency to go brown if made to far in advance. The hummus recipe was pretty well as before, only with the addition of fresh coriander. For the guacamole recipe, I got my inspiration from The Mens Cookery Club website and pretty well made it the same way they did, although with a couple of differences.
- 3 Avocados
- 4 Gloves of Garlic (crushed)
- 3-4 tablespoons of Olive Oil
- Up to half a teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper
- Small handful of Fresh Coriander
- Juice from 1 Lime
- Salt and Pepper
I made this just as people were showing up, as I didn't want it to turn brown, but to be honest, I think the lime juice prevents that pretty much as although the bowl was out and had some dregs left in the bottom, it didn't turn brown all and tasted great.
Still, I really like their website. Great fun, and some useful tips and recipes. Definitely worth a read.
